The whisky gods have smiled on me once again this year with the arrival of the Diageo Special Release samples box that I put aside till the new year to properly taste them. (Each year I keep asking them to send full bottles and yet they turn a deaf ear to my humble request.)
Here's what to expect in the 17th year of this range of limited edition Scotch.

When people think of Amsterdam certain images pop into their head. There is the famous Red Light District. The 160 man made canals that intersects throughout the city. The coffee shops that sell other things besides coffee. Yet if you know where to look you will find an active community of fellow alcohol connoisseurs. Come along and explore its rich history and find great spots to take a break.
I was in for quite a surprise when I participated as a judge in the Jägermeister Charred BBQ Cook-Off recently. The Cook-Off, which took place in a culinary studio in lower Manhattan, was the culmination of a summer-long Facebook contest where fans submitted their own Jägermeister-infused BBQ dishes in three categories: beef, chicken and pork. Included are the recipes for the winning dishes!
Since I am a journalist I must disclose that I have always been looking for an excuse to visit Dublin. Maybe it is the fantasy I have had for so long that I can walk into a real Irish Pub in Dublin and find a great new buddy to share a few pints with. Let me share my time there, and include a few spots to visit when you go.
Everyone once in a while a great opportunity comes my way. In this case it was the opportunity to participate in World Class Driving Experience (WCD) down at West Baden Springs in French Lick Indiana.
So what did I drive that day? From and R8 to the Ferrari 599GTB and many more, take a spin behind the wheel here!
