    wineandwhisky_skipton.jpg
    Back in the day (actually a few months ago in April) I visited The Wright Wine & Whisky Company in Skipton for the innocent purpose of acquiring a couple of good scotch whisky bottles and the less innocent aim of introducing our "Fellowship" to the shop owners and maybe negotiate a wee discount for our club members.
     
    If the first goal was accomplished with the expert help of Mr Julian Kaye who recommended a beautifully citrusy,  cask-strength Dailuaine -...

    YFS 10 Cheese&Whisky - 05.jpg
    We usually meet up for our Whisky Tastings on the first Monday of every month, however October brought something a bit special - a Cheese and Whisky Tasting.
     
    Because we know next to nothing about cheese we approached the magnificient Homage2Fromage cheese club to work with us in creating a tasting that was both sumptuous and joyful.
    And so it goes that we chose four whiskies to try 'marry' to four cheeses: Green Spot (Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey);...

    It's been 8 months.
     
    Well... 7 months and 26 days to be precise, or 34 weeks. Or even if you prefer 5,712 hours (342,720 minutes or 20,563,200 seconds if you really want to know...) since we had our first foray into the smokey depths of peated whisky .
     
    Since then many whiskies have passed through our taste buds as we have been spoilt for choice in regards of quality and qua nt ity of expressions crossing our...

    2014-07-25 10.13.55.jpg
     
    A few months ago we were contacted by Richard Stewart, Director of a company called Little Tipples , asking if we were interested in reviewing their product(s)/service(s) and writing about them.
     
    Now, we are not a Whisky reviewing blog or website 'per se' but Mr Stewart's was keen for us to try his company's wares and, as we are (somewhat) reluctant to refuse an offer to try new whisky, we decided to accept his kind invitation and a...

    We could have had a Bourbon-only tasting on Monday and it would be awesome, however we wouldn't want to remind ourselves of what Britain lost back in the day (4th of July 1776) with just the good produce of Kentucky. No siree...
     
    That got us shakin' and movin' to bring you on this 7th July the delicious produce of Kentucky's proud sons Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Kentucky Bourbon Distillers (KBD) and Buffalo Trace, plus the amazing Balcones Single Malt Whisky from...

    Posting a blog entry for our bookshelf series at a time we are looking at our fast approaching Whisky Sharing Social was quite the challenge, as the upcoming event's theme is "People drink whisky". What reading material would go well with that?
     
    Fortunately there is someone ready to help - Dave Broom.
     
    Now, Mr Broom needs no introduction to most people reading this blog. In fact Mr Broom needs no introduction to anyone seriously interested in Whisky, Rum...
