Is there that car that you never think you'll ever own or drive? Or maybe a country that you'll think you'll never be able to visit? Or a famous singer you'll never be able to see perform live? Well for me, Rosebank is the single malt that holds that perch in my mind. But before … Continue reading Rosebank

A boat-load of Glenfarclas. . .

I'll not beat around the bush. I love Glenfarclas. I love its flavour profile. I love that it's been in the same family since the dawn of time. I love the dark brown glass bottles they sometimes use. I love that it's affordable. I love that they make their whisky pretty much exactly the same … Continue reading A boat-load of Glenfarclas. . .

Happy birthday to me . . .(Part 2)

Here we are with the second installment of my edge of the seat thriller that is my rather self-indulgent birthday! So after purchasing my birthday bottle I had to decide on a place to go for my dinner. The food had to be good but the whisky had to be great! Problem is without venturing … Continue reading Happy birthday to me . . .(Part 2)

Happy Birthday to me. . . (Part 1)

This is more of a blog than a review. Well, its totally a blog instead of a review but it is whisky-related, so that counts right? It was my 29th birthday last week, so as a whisky obsessive I spent it the best I could, with whisky, and a very understanding partner! The day started … Continue reading Happy Birthday to me. . . (Part 1)

The Antiquary 12. Best blend I’d never heard of?

I'll hold my hands up and say that I am a sucker for some cool packaging and a cool bottle. At the right price admittedly, you won't find me buying any Macallan M any time soon; a steal at only £3,500. I was in my one of my local off licences and something shiny and … Continue reading The Antiquary 12. Best blend I’d never heard of?

Back in the swing of things. . .

Hi everyone, as you can probably notice this is my first blog in a while. Apologies for the extended hiatus I've had alot on my plate. I've just changed jobs after being thoroughly miserable in my last role for well over a year and have been settling in to my new role and fresh start. … Continue reading Back in the swing of things. . .

Whisky and YouTube

One of the things that really got me into trying more whiskies was YouTube. It's a really fountain of knowledge and opinion so I thought I'd share with you all a few of my favourite vloggers and what draws me to them, and what might draw you to them. Ralfydotcom Ralfy has been reviewing … Continue reading Whisky and YouTube

James Eadie and the Goblet of Benrinnes 13

Totally changed my mind at the last minute for this review. It was all planned out and written up and ready to be blogged out, and you will see the fruits of those labours eventually but my mood has taken me somewhere else, somewhere independent, somewhere cask strength. I have got the urge to talk … Continue reading James Eadie and the Goblet of Benrinnes 13

You say Tomatin, I say Tomato. . .

Let's call the whole thing Scotch! Tomatin! Sits right on the border of the Highlands and Speyside and produces around 5 million litres of whisky a year, so they keep themselves busy up there. I've visited the distillery on my way up to Inverness and what I found most memorable was the amount of imposing … Continue reading You say Tomatin, I say Tomato. . .
