Went over to F&C's for a tasty German dinner.

F and C dinner

After dinner tried some of my Monkey Shoulder scotch that I got for my birthday, and also a bit of "Ardbog" - an Ardbeg that was very heavily peated, so hence the name.  It was yum :)

Tonight after work I went hunting the Baxter Inn on Clarence St.

You'd only know it was there if someone told you about it.  

And warned you about dark alleys.

 And unmarked doors.

But it was totally worth it!  The bar tender I talked to was super helpful and I ended up sitting at the bar.

What a bar!

I ended up trying two scotches - a Longrow CV ($11) and a Caol Ila Distiller's Edition ($17).

Will have to drag the sweetie along some time :)

After that went to Luc and Lizzi's for dinner so could take a donut photo of Ryan.

Three months ago today we took a tram from Central to Victoria Park then did a Central and Sheung Wan foodie tour.

Last week we had a whiskey night at work.  Six whiskeys - three Scotches, two Irish and a Welsh.

Scotch Night
They were all pretty good, these were my notes on the night:

Campbelltown Longrow: strong, somewhat peaty, liked it
Penderyn sherry wood single malt (Welsh): bitier, some more intense flavours and smell. Interesting.
Knappogue Castle single malt (Irish): smelled almost fruity, definitely not as intense. Tad smokey. Just a tad. Not bad.
Writers Tears: undecided. Bit more bland and lack of smell. Jeff liked it tho
Adelphi fascadale single malt: bitey, a bit smokey, a bit too .. something. Jeff claims bacon flavours :)
Benromach special edition: Liked it. Nice flavours. Strong. Good golden colour. Still liked the Longrow the best

Sadly the Longrow had run out by the time for seconds of anything, so missed out on another shot of that.

Here's two of them on the night - so different in colour!

A year ago today we spent the day wandering around Akihabara and Ikebukuro; also Shinjuku and Shibuya.  One of the coolest things was Super Potato and all the Game & Watches.  You're not meant to take photos in those stores, but I couldn't resist - yay for random camera!! :)
