Bruichladdich Octomore 03.1

We’ve all had those moments. Something is presented to you as a new idea. A new plan. We’re all old enough to remember a time without smart phones and having the internet with you at all times. The idea that going without would be silly 10 years ago to me, yet now I’m a little […]

Glenfarclas 15

London’s an odd place. It really can drain you, as there’s tons and tons going on at any one moment. Especially for those of us who usually block out the “odd” things going on. So after a long (long) day of the Victoria and Albert museum followed by the Natural History museum, I was ready […]

Aberlour A’bunadh

Last night in Edinburough, and wow, I’m tired. I swear I’ve walked up and down the Royal Mile 6 times, up an extinct volcano, and shopped at Cadenhead’s twice. I’ve had enough Haggis to kill most of the sheep in the area. It’s brilliant. I think all this exercise deserves a reward. A nice reward […]
