Spirits of Travel

Many are the countries that offer their very own fascinating & tasty distillations -- Scottish single malts, Mexico's tequila, Kentucky bourbon, habushu in Japan -- you name it. An intoxicating way of exploring the world! And of course most countries also have their own beers - often very distinctive indeed. We raise a glass to all of it here!

Sheri, Ardbeg Supernova is outstanding...I scored it a 94 when I tasted it earlier this year. Islay's unique in that all of the distilleries offer tours of some sort, and it's possible to taste a wide variety of Scotches there. I'd also suggest spending a week or so in the area around Dufftown in Speyside, where there are several dozen distilleries within driving range to visit.

Mark, can you suggest any good trips to whisky country? I once went to Islay in Scotland and visited the Ardbeg distillery. Ardbeg has always been known to be one of the peatiest single malts. I heard they just released the peatiest, smokiest single malt in the world, called Super Nova.
