52 - Smokin'
Week 52 - Monday 12/25 to Sunday 12/31
I first had smoked whiskey while cruising to the Southern Caribbean. I was nearly as impressed by the process as by the smoothing and smokey flavor added to an already good drink. Not long after, I ran into the machine used to generate the smoke while browsing Amazon for sous vide accessories. When I saw it at Bed Bath & Beyond with a 20% coupon, resistance was futile. After adding a 2 liter Erlenmeyer flask to the bar tools, I gave it a try to see if it really was that easy. It was. It will remain a special occasion drink and the pictured setup was Applewood smoked Scotch shared with my son (the family’s other Scotch drinker) on New Year’s Eve. A smokey, smooth ending to 2017.
