Royal Brackla 12 Year Old

This months Whisky-Me was from Royal Brackla and a bit of a weird one. I was sure I had tried this whisky already and indeed I would even have been able to tell you where I tried it and all about the night I had at a rather terrible hotel in Dunkeld before a rather […]

Glen Scotia 15 Year Old

Glen Scotia has been a fairly good bet for me in the last few years. Apart from the odd limited edtion which I didn’t enjoy much they have all been good value and good whisky. It doesn’t matter where you land on the price spectrum it has been always reliably very good. The 15 year […]

Council to take over historic Chivas Site

Bunnahabhain Moine

This one should have gone out last week but you know with F1 being back, work to pay the mortgage and family time to factor in something was bound to be missed. I still have a long long list of DIY jobs to do as well rather than sitting here but oh well. From a […]
