The Expat Expo in Zug last weekend was fun. It was a relief to freely speak English. Eighty four booths were crowded together in a well lit basement. The highlights were...
A whisky tasting with Mark Chesterfield: I loved the Aberfeldy Single Malt. It was smooth, light, and a touch smoky at the end. The Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban was too sweet. It's matured in port pipes shipped from Portugal.
An incredible British cheese tasting with Michael: I should have taken Wallace & Gromit more seriously. I had no idea British cheese is so fantastic. It's like having an opera melt on your tongue. The rhapsody of flavors gently grounds you into the present and all that remains is the taste. I especially loved the Exmoor Blue and the Rachel Goat. If you're in the Zürich HB on Wednesdays, you can stop by Michael's booth and ask him to introduce you to the history and flavors of British cheeeeeeeeese.
A delightful and delicious wine tasting with Peter Beaty: I found the quintessential white and red wine. The New Zealand 2008 Wild Rock Sauvignon Blanc “Infamous Goose” is smooth, fruity but not sweet and very refreshing. The Australian 2008 Angus The Bull Cabernet Sauvignon is strong and honest. I can't wait to enjoy our 4 bottles (2 each) with food. Peter is planning to move to Zürich this summer. This is great news as this town needs a neighborhood wine shop with friendly, expert advice that won't break the piggybank.
