|Blade Runner and Lost In Translation – My ultimate Whisky Movies|
I know it is a bit of a odd post but recently with the heat of summer putting me off Single Malts I found that if I was to think about what would get me in the mood for whisky it would be such things as a rainy day or stormy night, cool weather, and in particular some movies came to mind over and over again. Well not being able to control the weather (air con is the short fall) I could at least look forward to a good movie in the evening and set my mind to what whisky I would enjoy in the process. Amazingly it works… for me at least.
I have 2 stand outs amongst many, Blade Runner and Lost In Translation. Funnily enough both these movies have whisky in them though I can say that this is only a small factor in my choice. Primarily these movies moods make me contemplate either my youth, love of science fiction, how rich and enjoyable things were for me when Blade Runner was released (Atari rocked!), or my time spent in Japan on and off many years ago and how Lost In Translation was such perfect fit of my experiences. Yes whisky does make you think.

So do you have a whisky movie? If so let us all know as I am sure with this post it will be a topic of discussion at our next D.T.W.C. meeting. Otherwise I hope you discover at least one for those days you just need to get in the mood.
