Romans, Friends, and Countrymen

Last night I flew to Rome on Easyjet which is a low cost carrier from London's Gatwick Airport. I was fortunate to get the seats at the Exit, else the seats are so close to each other that it gets very cramped. However, the flight left early and landed early too at Fiumicino Airport in Rome.
Though they say 'In Rome do as the Romans do' I decided to be different and carried my Black Dog with me to enjoy with the pizzas and pastas and cannelloni.


My first Italian dish that I had with my Black Dog was Spaghetti al Tonno (Spaghetti with Tuna). The


delicate flavours were a perfect combination for the malty, mellow woody taste of the Black Dog. The pairing was a hit even with a few die hard wine lovers from Italy!


So next time you want to have Italian food, dont worry about pairing it with wine. Pick up a Black Dog, a very fine scotch to go with it. You will not regret it. It is Living in Style!

Cheers!

Drink responsibly.
