Whisky and golf? Yes I know some of you are thinking paradise, but we thought after the epic comeback by Europe in the Ryder Cup last night it would be remiss of us not to look at 2 of Scotland’s greatest exports. Scotland’s own golfing export Paul Lawrie massacred his American opponent winning 5 holes up with 3 to play. We greatly enjoyed with one of Bruichladdich’s 15 year old links –Valhalla single malt whiskies which is part of a ‘links’ range released some time ago. This range of links whiskies are now set to be even more popular over the next few days, however the Scottish Whisky Store still has the above plus Bruichladdich 15 Year Old Links VIII-Torrey Pines and Bruichladdich Links 16 Year Old Vancouver single malt whiskies still in stock.
I expect there is a whisky marketing man working away right now to release a single malt whisky in honour of the amazing win at Medinah, outside Chicago last night. The Europeans fought back from a 9-4 score line to take the Ryder cup 13 ½ to 14 ½ in the Americans own back yard. The Americans had been their confident selves during most of the tournament however piece of magic from Ian Poulter on the evening of the 2nd last day gave Europe a chance. With legend Seve Ballasteros on their arm the Europeans largely led by their British contingent stormed away on the last day with 5 straight wins and the Americans simply bottled it.
