Liquorature Gathering #007 – “Atlantis” (David Gibbons)
Date: August, 2009
Whisky: Yamazaki 12 y.o., Macallan Fine Oak 10 y.o.
Rum: Santa Teresa 1796
Really liked the ambience for this meeting. Cozy little set up at Scott’s place. Great snacks and nice beverages. Scott picked up a Japanese whisky (Yamazaki) that was a very pleasant surprise. The book did not receive an overly warm reception. Most felt it went a little off the rails, and was derivative of the Cussler/Indiana Jones schtick. That being said, it did have many positive merits. Led me into some research regarding the “historical” Atlantis, Plato, ancient civilizations, etc. For a mediocre book it managed to bring out one of the better conversations we’ve had to date. Good night. Topic conversation about two hours.
