This is the Whisky Boys last tasting of 2010. Nicola came over to Jim’s on Tuesday 28th December and brought with her a little bottle containing an amber nectar. This little bottle was a Christmas gift to Nicola from her friend and neighbour, Lee who was also one of the Whisky Boys guest tasters.

This little bottle contained :-

Linkwood, Single Cask, Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Distilled 1994 at 54% Alc/vol, 10cl Bottle.

This precious little dram was bottled and sold by :-

Overall Score…3.5 corks

Well we both realy enjoyed this wee dram, could have sipped this one all night. You could just sit back in front of an open fire with a slice of fruit cake and a couple of pieces of shortcake, what a grand image.

We have just put Demi Johns on our wish list for a wee visit, and would suggest you all do the same. Remember to tell the staff at Demi Johns that the Whisky Boys sent you.

    Glad you liked it Jim! Would definitely echo your call to visit Demijohn. They have a shop in Edinburgh too, staff are really friendly, and if you ask nicely they might let you have a wee try before you buy!
