Macán seems to be a kind of "second wine" from Vega Sicilia (allegedly the best wine of Spain, never tasted it). Quite good, but a tad too sweet.

No whisky this time, just an "abricotine" (apricot brandy), a grappa on the house (amarone for the lady, barolo for me) and then an extended stroll to get rid of the vapors before a beer nightcap (Staropramen):

Anyone who like Scotch Whiskey, should visit the Stanley Hotel sometime. They have an amazing whiskey bar, an absolutely huge assortment of them.

I am not a fan of Scotch, or any other sort of whiskey (I am a tequila man, myself), but I think I would have been in heaven if I were.

Out at night again:

Interesting whisky, lots of peat, smoke, even a hint of burned wood but very pleasant.


Back home I left the door to my balcony open (heat!) and had successively a visit from:
  • a big moth;
  • a millipede;
  • a small cat;
  • a wasp (garden variety, not the usual big parasitic ones).
All were safely returned to their respective biota.

Penises in my Scotch? Sounds like a country-western song...
Pretty sure that’d be “penis in mah bourbon “ pardner.
