What can I say...


By far the most active bunch of whisky lovers in the west. True to the product, not in it for the money, but all for passion. As a whisky professional I can really relate to these laddies and lassies. 

Lead by a driven guy, who happens to live in walking distance, so that gives me two good reasons to keep in contact.

A very good example of how to setup a whisky community. Although some of the members are a bit 'coloured'... ;-)
