“You guys rock. Thanks fellas. Enjoy the rest of the night”


“A million thanks to you too! This is our first time on Twitter tasting and it has been fun and less stressful than I thought:)) very kind of you and appreciate everything from the bottom of our hearts (Kenny too!) Slainte!”


Latest Whiskey Tasting Notes

If you’re a fan of whiskey or just curious about it, then you might have come across the term “tasting notes” before. Essentially, tasting notes are just descriptions of the flavours and aromas that you might encounter when sipping on a glass of whiskey.

Think of it as a way to articulate and discuss what you’re experiencing when you’re enjoying a dram of your favourite whiskey. It’s a fun and social way to explore the complex flavours and nuances of different types of whiskey, and it can help you develop a deeper appreciation for the spirit.

“Thanks for having me join you! The best part of making whisky is getting to share it, its a brilliant aspect of the whisky community that we can do things like this!”
