For the last sunset of the cruise, Dad and I went out the back of the ship and shared a couple of whiskys. There’s something special about that last sunset – you don’t want to waste a second of it – watching the water rush by and knowing that tomorrow you’ll be back on dry land again.
A short visit to the Isle of Skye
Talisker is one of the best single malt whiskys in the world, and is made in a small village on the southwest coast of the Isle of Skye, which is off the west coast of Scotland.
Every time I taste its smoky peaty flavour, in my mind I take a short trip to that little distillery on the windswept, rain-soaked, mystical coast of Skye.
If you ever feel like visiting, but can’t afford it, buy a bottle of Talisker, close your eyes, take a sip, and you’re there already.
