I’ve not done a whisky update for a little while, and certainly missed a Christmas update, but don’t worry – I did get some more whisk(e)y for Christmas, although one was a bit of a shocker!(more…)
Merry Christmas and a whisky New Year! A pretty good haul this year if I do say so myself, and that doesn’t include the Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold I’d picked up myself in the supermarket with the Christmas shopping. (more…)
I’ve been thinking about buying one of these Norlan glasses for some time, but always struggled with the price – £42 for two whisky glasses is a bit steep! But I was buying some other glasses this week, the supplier has these on offer, and buying both together saved on a delivery charge so I treated myself to an early Christmas present!(more…)
What a wonderful surprise! A good friend messaged me earlier in the week to check my address and let me know he was posting something up to me. It arrived this morning and was a bottle of Dalwhinnie 15-Year-Old Whisky. Do surprises get any better? I’ll let you know once I’ve had a dram this evening….
Another to add to my current whisky collection, which I blogged about here.
That’s right, there’s no ‘e’, or at least not in the country who invented the stuff!
I’ve always liked the idea of drinking whisky, but only since moving to Scotland have really begun to appreciate it as it really should be. And I think it’s fair to say my taste in whisky has also matured, moving a little further afield than the classic, yet easy to drink Speyside’s to slightly more acquired Highland and Island drams. That’s not to say I don’t still like a nice Speyside, just that they’re will be more than a bottle of 2 of other stuff in my drinks cupboard, at least over the festive period.
