The next RMW tasting will be on Tuesday 26th September 2017 at 8pm. The theme will be a look at some of the many recent new releases. Tickets cost £15 and are redeemable against the purchase of a single bottle of one of the drams bought on the night. Tickets can be bought on-line or in store. These tastings are understandably popular: fine drams, good company, informative and entertaining and great value.

I'll be hosting a tasting at The Abbey bar on Edinburgh's Southside this Wednesday at 7pm for Royal Mile Whiskies. The bar has a whisky club and non-members are welcome to attend. Booking in advance will avoid turning up on the night to a full house and hence nae room at the inn. Not sure excatly what I'm pouring but a blend, malt, sherried malt grain and something peaty. Check their site for details - I strongly recommend The Abbey for its comprehensive whisky list genuinely modest pricing and very generous flights.
