  1. Brand New: Highland Park Valkyrie

    Brand New: Highland Park Valkyrie
    The Orkney single malt takes its name from the legendary creatures that would descend from the heavens on horseback to comb the battlefields for the bravest of the fallen warriors, taking the worthy few to enter Valhalla, the hall of Norse god, Odin. The whisky celebrates Highland Park’s Nordic ancestry, with Orkney once forming part of the vast Viking kingdom...

    Authors' Series 2016
    I love nothing more than a wee courie up with a good book and a great dram. I have to admit that my 1999 New Year’s resolution to read more of ‘the classics’ hasn’t made as much progress as I’d hoped – War & Peace stands out as a major culprit – but I keep trying all the same. And...

    Coming Soon: Bunnahabhain Moine Oloroso
    We like to remind our Islay-loving customers that Inveraray is often described as the Gateway to Islay, and our Living Cask 1745 pays tribute to that title with an award-winning blend of Islay malts. Otherwise known as the Queen of the Hebrides, Islay is famous among whisky drinkers for its intensely peaty flavours, but there’s one distillery that is known...

    Review: Springbank 1992 21 Year Old
    Normally I'm the one to have a sip of the amber nectar and share my thoughts with you, but on the occasion of the Springbank 1992 21 Year Old, I'll begrudgingly step aside for this nice lad at YouTube channel, Whisky Wednesday, to tell you what he thinks of this limited single cask release from the Campbeltown distillery.
  5. Burns Night

    Burns Night
    Scots and non-Scots around the world raise a dram to the Immortal Memory of Rabbie Burns on Wednesday 25th January, the question is: which whisky will you choose? Every year my family and I sit down to a lovely bit of haggis, neeps and tatties on January 25th. Some years we'll head out to a ceilidh and strip the willow, others...

    Review: Haig Club
    Hamish's hints on Haig Club - What's it like? "As you know, whisky is my life, is my passion. It has to be when you are stuck outside a shop, forced to watch nothing but gorgeous lovely whisky pass you by day after day after day……. Not that I’m complaining mind. Because I can’t. Because I’m made of wood, and...
