Whisky Round Table

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Head over to Whisky4everyone (by Matt & Karen) for this month’s Whisky Round Table. The twelve of us are answering this question:

What is your whisky ‘dirty little secret’?  That’s the whisky that you always enjoy but would never let your ‘whisky connoisseur’ friends know that you do (apart from us!).  It is the big brand/well known name that you may drink when out or the one that always sits in your whisky cupboard, alongside your limited edition cask strength bottlings from those niche distilleries.  Tell us why it is your ‘dirty little secret’ whisky, as we like a good story.
