A Canadian Whisky Trip

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. That’s just me just being a bit curious. But I tasted every whisky and love to share my nosing and tasting notes in a nutshell.
