Fancy a Bit?

Yes, do you fancy a bit of fudge? I will be making my next order of fresh fudge this Thursday, 4th May and will post them out on the Friday morning. So if the Royal Mail behave themselves, you’ll have it on the Saturday. I’ll be rotating some of the whiskies I use on a fortnightly basis as I will…

Did I think this would happen? My selling fudge that is. I imagine we have all had moments and opportunities which we thought were within our grasp, yet they were dashed or snatched away before we were able to say “hey, no, I still want to try / need / have to do that!” (Brief interlude to recall those times..)…

Inside the Bottle – Why Choose That Bottle?

I guess this is something that I think a lot about, especially when I look at the whiskies I have. The why? Initially I think it was from visiting distilleries and enjoying one of their whiskies, then it was maybe a suggestion from someone to try something different. Then there’s the old “it was on offer, so I thought I’d…

Maltal Kombat – The Dram Team

This evening I decided to sit down with the Maltal Kombat set from The Dram Team.. I quote “we’re going to be exploring the wonderful world of whisky finishes…each ending its time in wood in a markedly different way…outstanding’. “Start strong, finish stronger” – Generic Sports Person Tonight’s solo session started off with: Glen Moray – Classic Sherry Cask Finish – Single…

That Boutique-y Whisky Company – Twitter Tasting

Wednesday 15th March was a night that so many had been waiting for… including me. That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s twitter tasting with Steve Rush aka The Whisky Wire and the man of the moment Dave Worthington from the wonderfully aforementioned whisky company. I had my first delicious encounter with TBWC during the Yorkshire Whisky Festival in York last September (2016), and…

Old Pulteney Clipper – Single Malt Whisky

Old Pulteney are a distillery whose whiskies I have enjoyed on and off over the past few years, so when I was contacted to see if I would like a sample, well, I could hardly say no! The Limited Edition Clipper commemorative bottle was launched in July 2014. This was matured in ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks (46% vol.) My thoughts……

Glen Moray 18 – Single Malt

A few weeks ago I received a lovely sample of the Glen Moray 18 year old single malt whisky (47.2%) from the Distiller’s lovely wife. I’m sure most of you are familiar with Glen Moray? I guess it can be described as one of my “locals”… Lucky me. From their website: “Located in the heart of Speyside, Scotland’s whisky capital,…

Newcastle Whisky Festival

Last Friday morning with bags packed, a couple of whisky samples and whisky fudge I boarded the train to Newcastle. With a book in front of me I sat and planned a little sample session and note taking of my Boutique-y Whisky Carsebridge sample, maybe an hour or so into my trip. Earphones in.. then came the message over the…

Inside the Bottle

Inside the bottle seemed like the most suitable title… I think? So what exactly do I mean? Well I guess it comes from being a newish blogger, and someone who does have a lot more to learn when it comes to describing the hopefully wonderfully alluring and delicious whisky in my glass. When I say orange and lemon, I probably…
