Friday just bumbled along... nowt very exciting happening in Pickwicks!
Friday evening was fantastic. The Mayoress, Julie and her husband Martin hosted an excellent evening in their house. The evening was to celebrate 'Burns Night'.
We had a marvellous haggis (brought from a local quality farm shop - made with Somerset meat) and all of the trimmings. For those who were not haggis eaters, Martin grilled some sausages.
The best part of the evening was being able to sample some Scottish Whisky! Am only just starting to get into the drink (am a gin man). However, loved all that he had, especially the 'Islay' whiskey.
That whiskey had a very heavy (sort of tar) taste. However, gave a great kick. In a bizarre twist, we also had some Irish whiskey - which I'm sure is not often presented at a Byrnes evening.
Never mind - was good to taste the difference. So now I'm semi hooked. After all, I did try the 'Hot Whiskey' in Ireland.
Well done to Martin and Julie for putting on a fabulous party.
