About Gareth74:

My first taste of whisky was an old bottling of Macallan 10 in the late 80’s early 90’s. The second whisky I tasted was the dumpy highland park in the early 90’s. I think I was spoilt for a good introduction. To be honest I’ve been hooked since then but only recently applied myself to it with any focus.

I class myself as an novice but an eager student.

First whisky I remember seeing as a kid was a bottle of John Player Special blended whisky. A singularly weird and wonderful bottle from the late 70's. Looking somewhere between a bottle of aftershave and a packet of fags.

I love Scottish whisky the most.
