Topics: A departure from the usual- we watched the film “Whisky Galore” accompanied by a whisky/dinner pairing.

     We paired Black Bottle with smoked cheese and smoked almonds, paired Glenkinchie 12 yr with a twice-baked potato, and paired Compass Box Orangerie with pork loin with an orange marmalade glaze.

     Thanks Jill Sexton for doing the cooking!!!!!

Famous Scotsman: Sir James Douglas (“the Black Douglas”), presented by Eric S.

Covered in the news: Duncan Taylor is building a new distillery in Huntly (Speyside).  Isle of Jura releases “Prophecy”- supposedly heavier, richer, and peatier than what they usually produce, Scotch whisky exports to Brazil have more than doubled from ’08 to ’09, and an update on the Talisker Bounty Boat- their journey is 25% complete.
