Four lovely bottles of whisky came along with a book from Davin De Kergommeau, a book about Canadian whisky. There was this whole plan, to nose and taste the whisky and read the book! A fantastic idea.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it all the dates. But nevertheless, I enjoyed the book, with the company of some Canadian whisky. And looked for the twittertag #DavinTT2, every now and then.
