Had a go with the two Limited Vintners Edition 2017 Bowmores. The 18 was too rich with sweet manzanilla notes but distinctly changed to ripe tropical fruits during the finish. The 26 was definitely more well-rounded with the Sherry influence but still very sweet for my palette. All and all the 26 is like a Cask Strength Bowmore 18yo - but still tasted immature for such a high age statement and price point. French oak wasn’t the right choice. The 18 is less of an everyday dram, but the rapid mouth complexity and long finish made me prefer this one. Reminded me of some spectacular IB’s and would definitely pick up a bottle. A splash of Vintner’s Ed. 18yo in some Bowmore 12 would do wonders! Extremely grateful to @gmonte711 for the opportunity; thanks again! #bowmore#islay#peat#singlemalt#scotch#whisky#whiskey#whiskyporn#scotland#slainte #🥃
Cycling through Glencoe, Scotland as part of my 1,000 mile solo bike ride across the UK in 2016. I always look back on those 26 days as a subtle reminder of what we're capable of when the odds are stacked against us. Most people thought I would fail (they were wrong) and everyone thought I was completely insane! (they were definitely right). Never be afraid to go after goals or targets that seem unrealistic or impossible to others. You will learn more about yourself and your capabilities than you ever will by playing it safe. Raising over £1,500 for @samaritanscharity and being an official JOGLE finisher are two things that nobody can take away from me. #poignantasfuck#cycling#jogle#scotland#glencoe#visitscotland#cycletouring#britain#travel#challenge#adventure#motivation#mentalhealth#samaritans
I was busy preparing another video for my Skye Postcard when I capture this picture. It is on the opposite side of the St Columba's Isle on the Isle of Skye. I loved the water movement and blue sky with lovely clouds. I hope you like the result with a little bit of slow exposure.
Two dives at St Catherines Loch Fyne today.
Visibility 3-5m & water temperature 7C.
Had a great days diving with an awesome bunch of dive buddies.
SCUBA diving, sunshine and great company, what more can you possibly want on a Sunday...I love my life :)
