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

A mysterious single malt selling for under R230 (£13) a bottle! Typical bourbon cask vanilla profile with a great fruity nose. What's not to love?

I was very pleased to have been able to take part in South Africa's very first online whisky tasting, hosted by WhiskyBrother on Twitter, using the #WBOT  hashtag. A great evening with 3 great drams!

How long until the home of Three Ships and Bain's in South Africa release some of the great experimental whiskies I've tasted recently? Here's hoping that they hear my plea...
There are great new whiskies in the warehouses at the home of Three Ships and Bain's Cape Mountain Whisky, when are we going to see them?
