SGwhisky remembers B.B. King - With Two Whiskies Befitting the Man
If you love music, especially the Blues, last Friday was probably a dark day for you, as it was for me. Personally, music is another love of mine and finding a great track to pair with a good whisky is always something I appreciate. And many a times, the music of B.B. King seems to lend itself so well to relaxing with a good dram in your hand. It was sad, therefore, to know that the King of Blues passed on last Friday. A legend of music and an inspiration to me as a person who loves to play the guitar, his passing was indeed a great loss for the world of music. Incidentally, B.B. King also did an advertisement for Cutty Sark whisky in 1982!
So we will honour the memory of this great musician in the way we know how here at SGwhisky, by raising two drams that are befitting of the man. No Cutty Sark, but rather two whiskies that either remind me of him and/or were of vintages that correspond to great music released by the man, a Bowmore 1965 Sestante and Glendronach 1970.
