Wonderful Wednesday Personal Blog
After a sack lunch on the bus (much better than it sounds), we stopped at Highland Park Distillery where we immersed ourselves, figuratively--for the most part--in whisky making.
We tasted some of the whisky Highland Park is best known for, watched them turn the malted barley on the floor by hand, and learned about the process of smoking the barley over peat cut not too far from the distillery.
The peat smoke gives it a flavor not found in American whiskeys, and I found it intriguing.
If you can find Highland Park Whisky in the states (or wherever you are), it's worth trying.
Our next stop had a bit of crucial timing, as we were headed to the Brough (pronounced 'broch') of Birsay. The remains of a Norse settlement are on the tidal island, and we needed to visit whilst the tide was out.
This is where I talk about things in my life outside of writing. Mostly gardening and dogs.
