120 Degrees of Separation: Whisky at 55° 42′ N

Whisky Tasting: 55° 42′ N, originally uploaded by maltjerry.

The second leg of the “World’s Most Latitudinally Separated Annual Whisky Tasting” in The Bishops Arms, Lund, Sweden. Latitude 55° 42′ N.

Present: Helen, Rickard, Brian, Jerry and Ron. Photo taken by cj.

The first leg was offshore from Vernadsky Base, Antarctica, March 18 2008. Latitude 65° 15′ S. As Ron pointed out, that is 120 degrees of separation. Can anyone beat that?

We tasted Scapa 14 yo, Talisker 175, and Ardbeg Uigeadail.

Brian doesn’t usually drink whisky, saying the time he tasted one he liked was in 1993. Very gamely taking part in this tasting, he professed to being seriously impressed by the Uigeadail. I’d say “knocked out” but that could be taken the wrong way.
