On the night of the 10th of December, I attended The Glenfiddich Gallery experience at The Refinery in Singapore. It was a bespoke event which was meant to showcase the various nuances of Glenfiddich as a whisky to the wider public.

Interestingly, recent years have witnessed the emergence […]Read more "Introducing: Whisky Butler"
And so here we are, my first blended whisky review. I find it rather surprising that it has taken me till the 29th review to actually feature a blend when you consider that there’s almost always a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label or Dewar’s White Label at home. But seeing as how both those […]Read more "Whisky Review #29: Johnnie Walker Explorers’ Club Collection – The Spice Road"
