Daftmill Tasting

An article titled “The Best Whisky Investments in 2019” lists Daftmill next to Diageo’s shelf-clogging “Game of Thrones” collection and Macallan’s marketing-lead Concept series. One of these is not like the other, but for the “investor” they are all likely to share the same fate. At LWC, we know that true value of these bottles is only realised through opening and sharing them…

World whiskies

Things are looking up for the London Whisky Club. Jason did an absolutely sterling effort in finding us a new venue. The Bottlescrue in St Paul’s. A terrific venue which has a room that is perfect for our needs. Our attendance was nearly the same as the previous week with Jez, Jason, Michael, Conor, Shiv, Frankie and Jason. James sadly couldn’t make it but we…
