The Whisky Game!

I’m going to be bottling my new Cask Two Oak Aged Vodka early next week. This week I’ve had a final pre-bottling taste and I’m really pleased with it, it is subtle yet complex, it has vanilla, a slight spiciness and is amazingly smooth. I’ve not tasted it against Cask One yet, but I have tasted … Continue reading

Whisky Drinker, Not Whisky Snob!

I think I’ve said before that I have a lot of different whiskies, something like 140 or so. It can take me ages to decide just which one to drink, which leads me to believe that I’m a bit of a whisky snob! Many of the bottles in my cupboards are quite expensive or exclusive, … Continue reading

Nice Whisky, Where Did It Come From?
