Single Malt Whisky in Canada


The adventure on Cape Briton Island continues as we meet more interesting people. They all speak with that maritime accent and seem to always talking about the last party or planning a new one.

I’ve picked up some new material for story writing. Hanging around with a few fishermen gave me an insight on how life on the high seas can be, and some details I can use to make my stories more interesting. I’ve also learned a new skills, such as drinking beer without spilling a drop while the boat is riding waves.

The people living in Cape Briton are a musical bunch. There are lots of amateur singers and musical instrument players. We listened to one jam session where a group of a dozen players formed a circle and just made music. There were several guitar players, a couple of flutes, a piano, plus spoons, drums and I’m not sure one another device was. DSC01313I was surprised there wasn’t a bagpipe player. Cape Briton Island is part of Nova Scotia, which you can guess has deep Scottish  roots. In fact we visited a single malt whiskey distillery on Cape Briton. They do make a very nice whisky- legally they cannot call it Scotch- and I purchased a bottle of their fourteen year old single malt.

Our time in Nova Scotia ended too soon, and we hope to return again. Maybe with a bit less drinking involved, as my liver has filed an official protest.IMG_20160803_103213
