Highland Park The Dark 17YO

Highland Park The Dark 17YO

The rise of T.V. and a bit more recently handheld pocket size computers - I believe we call them smartphones - announced the fall of a different art. The art to entertain a family with stories both serious and fun. I (being a Generation Y kid) vividly remember the railway stories from my grandfather on Sunday afternoon and the military practical jokes from my father. Me, I'm far from a born story teller but still quite a good listener. They and the generations before them mastered the art because they simply hadn't access to mind numbing media.

8 Scotch whiskies for International Scotch Day #LoveScotch

8 Scotch whiskies for International Scotch Day #LoveScotch


Today the world celebrates the second International Scotch Day. (Not to be confused with World Whisky Day and International Whisky day, but hey, the world clearly needs excuses to drink whisky) The initiative comes from global drinks company Diageo and mostly aims at recruiting the Millennial generation into the hipster world of whisky.

Alexander Walker's birthday - the Johnnie Walker blended scotch pioneer - will be remembered by a social media campaign #LoveScotch, several activities - free entrance, special tastings,... -  in distilleries and opening up its usual off-limits Archive for the public.

To help you celebrate yet another whisky-sipping day, we will pick 8 famous and affordable Scotch whiskies for you, The Whisky Loving Reader. But we will not limit ourselves to strictly Diageo whiskies.
