Great Places To Drink Whisky - The Bon Accord, Glasgow
The Bon Accord is located in North Street on the western edge of the city centre in Glasgow. The pub was first opened in 1971 and has grown to become a Glasgow institution and a must visit destination for beer and whisky fans. It is owned by Paul McDonagh, who purchased it fourteen years ago and who we were lucky enough to meet briefly during our visit. Under Paul and his family's ownership the establishment has gone from strength to strength and regularly pulls in awards. One of the most recent was for the Best Whisky Bar in the UK in 2014.

Review - Diageo Special Releases 2015
The Diageo Special Releases are one of the biggest and most talked about annual whisky releases. Each Autumn, the largest producer of single malt in Scotland announces the line up. The Special Releases programme has been running since the early 2000s and is designed to showcase some to the finest and rarest stocks in Diageo's portfolio, both from their current 28 single malt distilleries and those no longer in operation. All the bottlings are at the natural cask strength, non chill filtered and limited edition. The 2015 collection features nine whiskies.
Karen and Matt C were privileged to be invited to a small private tasting of the nine whiskies in London last month. The tasting was hosted by Dr. Nick Morgan, Diageo's Head of Whisky Outreach, and Maureen Robinson, one of Diageo's Senior Master Blenders. Both are part of the Special Releases selection panel. A huge thank you to both for the invite.

Review - Royal Brackla 12, 16 and 21 years old
This new range from the Royal Brackla distillery forms part of a larger range called The Last Great Malts. This showcases whisky from each of the five Scotch distilleries owned by John Dewar & Sons. Ranges from Aberfeldy, Aultmore and Craigellachie are already on the market, both in domestic and travel retail, with Macduff (which will be bottled under the Deveron name) to follow shortly this Autumn. It is the first full range to ever be released from the distillery and one whose whiskies we were very unfamiliar with.
