Barbarians at the Gate!

At first, we at Whiskey Break!™ thought to head to the Jura Mountains -- lovely to be sure, and a goodly haunt for swaggering Breakers! But, nay, this would not be our bucolic setting in celebration of the Jura Scotch we were hoisting this week end's day.

Nor would it be the actual Isle of Jura, whose website would indicate that the Isle of Jura is entirely devoted to making Jura Scotch Whisky. [scrivener note: I am not making this up.]


Welcome to
-- Isle of Jura --
Single Malt Scotch Whisky

And my favourite part,

You must be of legal drinking age in the country where you access this site.

Awesome. Now that is what we breakers call a website! Imagine the actual Isle! Nothing else matters. Sounds like a place Whiskey Break!™ definitely ought to visit. Especially so, considering just how fine the Jura proved to the palette. Indeed, all were in agreement: the Jura, and by extension of course, the Isle, was excellent fare, the 10yr carrying a medium-deep depth and mouth full of flavour. Yum.

But it was not to be, as attentions would turn toward prosaic events, both current and not so, and off it was to the Brandinburg Gate, where approaches anon the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

A proposed toast imagined to have been once overheard at the time of the breach:
"Goodbye Commies! You're back to being Russians. So, still bad."

Cheers, folks!

[please forgive any attempt, inferred or otherwise, at geopolitical humour, failed or otherwise.]
