The next day after leaving Kagoshima was a sea day with a Food and Wine Pairing hosted by Silas, the Azamara Quest’s Chief Sommelier. It has been a while since I have participated a tasting of this sort, should be a bit of fun.
The wines we would be tasting were the house wines on board, so I was not expecting any high ratings, but the addition of the pairings will keep it interesting.
After departing Kagoshima Japan, it was time to have a quiet drink on the pool deck as I get ready for my dinner in Aqualina later. Forgot to add in my previous post that my Mojito is not the usual recipe, I prefer dark rum, preferably Ron Zacappa 23, which was not included in my drinks package so went with Bacardi 8. Which, IMHO, pairs well with citrus.
We overnighted in Kagoshima which gave me the opportunity to look around the town. I was hoping to try the local delicacy of kurobuta pork, unfortunately the places that were renowned or even decent wouldn’t open until too late. Still lots of things to see.
