    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...

  • Scotch & Water

    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...
