After this event it is abundantly clear that South Africans are starved of many a good bourbon and rye! Here's hoping that the DISCUS folks can get more American spirits into SA soon
A contingent from DISCUS in the States descended on South Africa with a mind-blowing array of American bourbon and rye whiskeys. We need these in SA, and soon!

Another cracking single cask single malt  #whisky  release from one of the lesser known distilleries. Well done +Checkers South Africa !
Checker's latest offering from the Private Barrel Co stable is a 16 year old Glenburgie, limited to 288 bottles. A whisky rarely seen in single malt guise.

Whisky Coolers... Like me you've probably tried whisky stones or whisky discs and been disappointed. Heavy, clunky and they leave your dram tasting of minerals. The folks over at Balls of Steel have a fun alternative that is a lot better. Have a look for yourself...
Need to cool your whisky but don't want it diluted by ice or tasting like stones? Balls of Steel offers an alternative. But is it any good?

With Father's Day around the corner, I wanted to say thank to my Dad for all that he has done for me. I also review the Chivas Regal 18 year old and have a bottle to give away too
This tribute to my Dad spawned out of the Chivas - My Father is a Gentleman campaign where I get to review the Chivas Regal 18 year old and give a bottle away too!
