What's It All About, eh?

Cape Breton evokes deep memories and strong emotions for me as well as a deep appreciation for the beauty of my adopted island. My hopes are that you too might find the photos evocative - maybe a view you've not enjoyed before, or an 'Oh I've been there', or if from away that you may be encouraged to visit this fair isle so that you might come to love and breathe Cape Breton as I do. One word about place names that I use - some are completely local usage while others are from maps of Cape Breton that I've purchased over the years. I frequently post travel and other photos that are of interest to me - and hopefully you.

On the right hand side bar find my take on Single Malt whiskey - from how to best enjoy this noble drink to reviews (in a most non-professional manner) of ones that I have tried and liked - or not. Also musings, mine and others, on life in general.

Photographs are roughly 98%+ my own and copy-righted. For the occasional photo that is borrowed, credit is given where possible - recently I have started posting unusual net photographs that seem unique. Feel free to borrow any of my photos for non-commercial use, otherwise contact me. Starting late in 2013 I have tried to be consistent in identifying my photographs using ©smck on all out of camera photos I personally captured - (I often do minor computer changes such as 'crop' or 'shadow' etc but usually nothing major), and using
©norvellhimself on all photos that I have played around with in case it might not be obvious. Lately I have dropped the ©smck and have watermarked them with the blog name.

Laphroaig Select

Just purchased ths Laphroaig Select at a nice affordable price and quite enjoy it.  I then went to several sites that both discuss the whisky under consideration and also post reviews.  As always the various reviews showed a spread of taste but in particular they were extremely varied  - from no stars to five stars and many in between.  I hope to write my usual subdued take on this pleasant Scotch Single Malt (blend, actually) but for now will just say - first it was a pleasant price, second it was a pleasing drink, third it was not the firey peat that I so love with Laphroaig, BUT it is definitely a repeat buy for me and it is a nice way to initiate some friend into the great game of drinking single malt without scaring him off.  I would off-hand rate it at about a 78 against single malts in general. Tune in later - when I am at about half a bottle - and I will try to give you some of my low key comments that make me like and enjoy this.
