VIP Balblair Distillery Tour Winner Announced!

by Sam Smith     5. March 2014 10:57

Not the Oscars

Twitter is all a-buzz like a bag of bees in a barber shop with lots of gossip about winners. They must have heard that we were announcing the winner of our Balblair competition today! It could have been because there was a massive academy awards show on TV just the other night or it could be about us. But as there have been no good films made since Back To The Future in 1985, all the gossip must be about our competition!

This does beg the question: Who leaked this information about us announcing the Balblair competition winner to Twitter?

Win A VIP Trip To The Balblair Distillery

by Sam Smith     14. January 2014 13:43

Balblair distillery

What time is it? There are countless pop-culture references I could make in response to that question, including Beastie Boys lyrics, video game quotes and good old-fashioned internet memes (see below), but I think I’ll just be super sensible today and say it’s Competition time!!!

You might think that making up a new time of the day to go along with 'lunch time' and 'dinner time' (which is much more sinister if you grew up playing 'What's The Time Mr. Wolf?') isn't very sensible, but you can't argue with winning awesome prizes, can you?

The Final Winner of Our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar Competition

by Sam Smith     28. November 2013 16:36

Forrest Gump and the Premium Whisky Advent Calendar

As the philosopher Tom Hanks always said that his Momma always said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

The final winner of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition didn’t know that they were going to receive one of the most supreme advent calendars in existence when they bought a tasting set. It gave them a chance, but the future is tough to see (not for philosophers like Tom Hanks though. Philosophers can see in to the future, right? Or is that wizards? Either way, Tom Hanks can see into the future. And cast spells.).

And the Winner of the Bowmore Glasstorm Glasses is…

by Michael Orson     28. November 2013 12:38

Parrot

On Thursday last week, I posted a full review for the soon-to-be-released £16,000 Bowmore 50 Year Old, here. Any of you who read my account of the Bowmore evening at the Park Lane Hilton will know it was a jolly good whisky. To précis my thoughts, if you’ve recently saved the money for a Fiat Doblo 1.6 MPV, I urge you instead to buy a fixie bike, and spend the difference on the new Bowmore 50. I think that’s the sensible choice.

That night, during the unveiling of the record-breaking single malt, speakers talked us through the manufacture of each aspect of the finished package: the whisky, the presentation case and the decanter. First up was Bowmore Manager, Eddie MacAffer; followed by acclaimed carpenter woodsmith, Peter Toaig; and finally Nichola Burns and Brodie Nairn from Glasstorm.

Bowmore 50 Year Old 1961

by Michael Orson     21. November 2013 15:15

Bowmore 50 Year Old 1961

Hello, my name’s Mike.

If you remember me at all, you’ll probably know me as the chap who wrote tasting notes and things, and used the word “soupcon” too much. If you work at Master of Malt, you may know me as “the bloke that did that thing at the Christmas Party” or “the terrible man who did that other thing in Sales Director Ben’s office which Ben still hasn’t found out about”.

Regardless of whether or not you know me, you better learn something, punk: I’m back from Africa, I’ve just tasted a £16,000 bottle of whisky and now I’m going to tell you all about it.

More Winners of the Premium Whisky Advent Calendar Competition!

Whisky Advent Calendar Cat

You might be wondering where all the winners of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition competitions are. With a calendar being given away every week in November to lucky winners who purchased Tasting Sets, there should be more winners! We do apologise. With Christmas on its way, we’ve been a bit snowed under getting all sorts of exciting stuff prepared for the holiday season. (Keep your eyes peeled!)

First Winner of the Premium Whisky Advent Calendar Competition!

by Sam Smith     13. November 2013 13:51

WWE wrestling

Winning can be tough. Rugby players sometimes get their teeth knocked out to win. Wrestlers have to dropkick everyone in sight to get a taste of the gold. Chess is just difficult to play, let alone beat someone at it. To other people, like this week’s winner of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition, winning was as easy as buying a delicious Tasting Set and letting the prizes roll in.

Winner of The Gleneagles Competition!

Dapper dolphin

There are people who are born winners. Other people become winners. Some people are born as dolphins, which means that they aren’t actually people at all. We’re not concerned about dolphins today (although we should all help save them from extinction!).

No, today it’s all about the lucky winner of our rather marvellous Gleneagles competition!

New Boutique-y Whiskies; Allt-á-Bhainne, Glen Keith, and Miltonduff

by Ben Ellefsen     1. October 2013 13:11

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Miltonduff, Glen Keith and Allt-a-Bhainne

Well it’s certainly been quite a while since we put out any new Boutique-y whiskies. Over 3 months in fact. Erm. Sorry about that. Will try and be more hyperactive in the future. Promise.

After a clutch of slightly more esoteric ideas in the last set of releases, we’re coming firmly back to the ‘whisky world’ with these three, each one featuring some of our compadres from the geeky, obsessive, and at times slightly worrying world we all inhabit.
