Whisky and Views in the Pacific Northwest

The misty, cool atmosphere and jaw-dropping scenery make the Pacific Northwest one of the great places in which to enjoy single malt Scotch. On a recent road trip I managed to book several whisky tastings in Olympia and Port Townsend, WA. Guests enjoyed elegant entertainment (we were piped into a waterfront home in Olympia), and the dignity of the restored 1889 Elk’s Building in Port Townsend. Lovely aromas of fine malts from each of Scotland’s distilling regions filled the rooms with captivating allure, and the whiskies were paired with extraordinary hors d’oeuvres. When “off duty”, I enjoyed favorite waterfront hangouts, great seafood (clam chowder, with the star attraction still in the shell was a favorite!) and close-up looks at totem poles. Soon, the sometimes chilly, pine-scent of the Northwest will be memories, as the temperatures rise and I visit a few of the national parks of Utah.
