There is no better time of year to light a fire in the hearth and settle into a comfortable chair with a dram of whisky than winter. The recent storm provided a great opportunity to do just this. Read more about the best whiskies with which to be snowbound (you know this is great advice as I contributed to this article):



I found this interview with Ian Millar, Glenfiddich Global Brand Ambassador to be very interesting:



Wishing all you whisky fans out there a safe and happy 2013. Bliadhna mhath ur (Happy new year)!



Tis the season to drink whisky. I’d like to wish all those whisky fans out there happy holdiays. Pour yourself a dram of your favorite spirit and celebrate with the ones you love.





I’d like to invite all my loyal readers to join me for a complimentary whisky tasting at Julio’s in Westborough, Massachusetts. I will be offering samples of the entire Douglas Laing portfolio. Don’t miss this chance to talk and taste whisky with whisky power couple Brandall (myself and Randall Bird).

The Professor; at the heart. The Still House at Roseisle.

Final days, arriving at Drummuir Castle to unwind before the journey back across the pond home.

After checking in at the castle, I stretched my legs with a walk around the castle grounds. This shot is of some of the many types of Thistle growing wildy around Drummuir.

I also stumbled across these wild red raspberries. They were slightly tart; magic.

Drummuir Castle’s library, the Loch and K(e)y travellers spent many hours studying.
