Today was another sea day, I was expecting it to be a very quiet day before the Krew Kapers and the Captain’s Farewell Reception, but that changed when the Tony, the guy I became close with as a part of the Rafting and the same guy who I was bidding against for the wine and cheese tasting, invited me to join their tasting. Unfortunately one of the people he invited was not able to join them because they were ill.
The format was the same as our previous tasting, whites followed by the reds, we got to enjoy the same wines as before, but no Summus, will have to find another bottle somewhere else.
As usual Gerry was entertaining, and took us through the wines and how they are classified.
Whilst I had heard it before, it was still entertaining and helped me to pick up on the parts I missed previously
This group was good fun as well, and I got to meet a retired US Navy Submariner, who happened to be a Rear Admiral when he retired.
Had another great time.
Thanks Tony for the invite and thanks to Gerry and her team yet again. Time for a cigar and scotch
Today we finished off the bottle of Strathisla 25 that I bought with me from Singapore. This was a great drink, you can’t stop at one dram. This is another bottling by independent bottling by Gordon and MacPhail and is well worth it. I found it to be very smooth, with dark sugar / aged rum flavours, with a nice full / long finish. The shame is that today we finished the bottle, so no more. The scotch went very well with our cigars. Time now to get into a suit for tonight’s activities
