Wemyss Malts Tweet Tasting

On Wednesday 25th October I had the opportunity along with some friends on Twitter to try some whiskies from Wemyss Malts. Note to the reader: if you have the opportunity to take part, then do ensure your # is correct…this should have been called “oh hell, my ‘S’ fell off”. This tasting was to include a wee Old Fashioned as…

Spirit of Speyside 2017 Tweet Tasting

The 12th July saw us taking part in the Spirit of Speyside 2017 tweet tasting on Twitter #Dram17 This is my long overdue review…but it’s here at last. Although Speyside is very close to me I must admit I’ve never been to the Spirit of Speyside festival, this is something I’d like to rectify in the future. I have however…

A Year of Festivals…and Friends

Today I attended the Yorkshire Whisky Festival hosted by The Whisky Lounge. Maybe this doesn’t mean a lot to anyone but me, but this is the anniversary of my first year of festivals. And it’s been a good year. It has been a year that saw me setting up iheartwhisky fudge. It’s been the year I started to write and…

Happy 5th Birthday That Boutique-y Whisky Company

A few weeks ago whilst having a five minute break from my computer at work I saw that it the fifth birthday for That Boutique-y Whisky Company and what is more we could send a card / message to celebrate this fantastic event. Those that did were then invited to join in a birthday tweet tasting. How utterly fab! Dave…

The Whisky Exchange Show (TWE) 

Or of course I could go all youthful and say “Totally Wicked Event!” My little fudge business gained me a ticket to the trade show on the Monday and I was really looking forward to it. Having a day free on the Sunday made one decision easy, buy a ticket for that. So I did. And this is how it…

A Year in Words, Thoughts & Photos

So my first year as a wordsmith happened this weekend, so I thought I’d have a wee look back at what I’ve done, seen and experienced. It all started with someone on Twitter suggesting I should try it. So lots of thinking followed with a “why the hell not?” So I started. My first entry was after my visit to the…
