    In his 1998 warm foreword to the second edition of Neil Wilson's wondeful book " Scotch & Water ", Charles MacLean says "Scotch and Water is a classic. It (...) breaks new ground, based upon detailed original research, (...) this book is about more than just whisky. It is about the communities in the islands that made and still make the stuff. (...)"
     
    In fact I reckon that it is hard to beat " Scotch and Water " as a...
  • On The Seas And Far Away

    How can my poor heart be glad,
    When absent from my sailor lad;
    How can I the thought forego-
    He's on the seas to meet the foe?
    Let me wander, let me rove,
    Still my heart is with my love;
    Nightly dreams, and thoughts by day,
    Are with him that's far away.
     
    On the seas and far away,
    On stormy seas and far away;
    Nightly dreams and thoughts by day,
    Are aye with him that's far away.
     
    When...
  • Our early St Patrick's whiskey evening

    It was obvious from the early days that we had been eager to bring Irish Whiskeys to our table. Predictably we anticipated St Patricks celebrations by almost a fortnight and hosted a particularly cheerful Irish Whiskey tasting on our usual monthly first  Monday of the month slot that happened to be the 3rd March.
     
    We went for a very Middleton-esque line-up of whiskies, with Paddy blended opening up as the traditional daily go-to dram and contrasting with second offering - Teeling Whiskey - as...

    Here at YFSTILL corner we have started a little Whisk(e)y books library that will hopefully become available to all club members soon (details on books' borrowing to be finalised...).
     
    Bearing in mind our next tasting will be the "Irish Frisky Whiskey" , what better way to introduce the Whisk(e)y Library with Malachy Magee's book titled " 1000 Years of Irish Whiskey "?
     
    Here is a little snippet of the good words inside:
     
    "(...) It's a gladsome feeling just to raise your glass...
  • World Whiskies - Episode 1 Review
    2014-02-19T14:37:42.164Z
    YFS_FEB2014_06.jpg
    February 3rd: What a fantastic evening of taste-travelling and exploring this was! I mean, the only way it could have been better would be to visit the distilleries themselves, but since our budget wasn't enough for that, well, we were very happy with second best.
     
    We started with the farthest away from us, Sullivans Cove, which is located near Hobart, Tasmania, roughly 10,850 miles as the crow flies from Leeds, here in the UK.
     
    Sullivans Cove used to have...
  • Getting it

    Some people have asked what Yorkshire Fellowship of the Still is about, what do we do, how we do it etc. To most those questions you can find the answer here .
     
    However, for most people that have not had the pleasure, inclination, time (call it opportunity) to attend our (or any other) whisky tastings, the question they should be putting is: What do we GET at your (or any other) whisky tasting?
     
    Well, to be honest, I can't answer that...
