“Whisky River”


Description from Chicky Red-haired Grammy: When we lived in London previously, we had a car and did a 2-week driving tour of Scotland. Gorgeous hills with heather and valleys and whisky distilleries. Single malt whisky is my most favorite libation and fortunately, my husband hates it! One morning around 10 am we stopped at the Talisker distillery and could smell the whisky in the air and from the river running beside the building. After paying our admission fee we were directed to partake of the water and whisky samples set out for us. Chuck took the lighter one, assuming it was the water. Nope! The water was dark, about the color of the smoky quartz drops. The whisky was bout the color of the yellow smoky quartz. It was all too wonderful and I will share with you the fact that sheep are dumb and roam the countryside freely. If one hits a sheep with the car, even the idiot animal moved directly in front of the vehicle, the driver is at fault. We will go back before we leave the UK.

    I have not been a fan of yellow smokey quartz – in my tiny mind, sm. qtz. should be brown, not yellow – but you’ve made me see it in a new light.

    By-the-by, to my knowledge, the US is the only country to put an “e” in whisky
