Borrowing words from the old John Lee Hooker song. On Day 2 of the Whisky Competition at the Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival, I’m talking about categories, not single drinks. Except for the beer, that wasn’t in the competition, just a gift from a fellow judge.
In fact, as well as the Bourbon-style category (17 whiskies) and the scotch, Mild Blends (13) and Malts 9-12 year-old (36), there was the Irish (18). Getting close to 90 samples again – this is no walk in the park.John Lee got nuthin’ on me.
Session 3 beckons… Meanwhile, here’s Angela D’Orazio, the competition head judge.
