Also official spirits provider to Hibs, as you'd expect with them based in Leith.

I am impressed with all the hard work going on behind the scenes at San Starko.
The turn around at the club is/ has been HUGE.....👏👏👏👏😁

Woosh!
All 75 limited edition bottles gone within two hours at £100 each. Another indication of how folks are buying (in this case literally) into the feel good factors surrounding the club.👍🥃

meant to say her comment was along the lines of "but it's Speyside....you're an Islay Malt man are you not?"

Thanks for your heartfelt concern Big Alex. Much appreciated.👍
Didn't miss out👍🥃
Doubt if I'll open the bottle. More of a Rovers souvenir to join the other memorabilia.

Aye! That'll be right!🥹😂

When it comes to a dram of malt whisky ( purely for medicinal purposes of course!🥹) I'm any man.🫣😋

I'm with you there enbow..............never turned my nose up at any malt (as far as I can remember anyway). Was given a bottle of cough, cough Penderyn simply because it had my initials on it in gold! (AC ie Welsh Gold) Yes, it was drinkable. Shocked

Sometimes in the name of research personal sacrifices must be made!🥹
It's the very least a person can do.😋🥃

On the subject of Malts, Spirits of Excellence are planning a Single Malt tasting day on Sunday the 28th Jan. It'll be the 1st event of the year, and that gives me an opportunity to bring everyone this year's update.

2 gin tastings
2 rum tastings
2 Single malt tastings.
3 Shirt raffles

3 players shirts sponsored. (£750)
Fan fund (£1200)
Rovers Donations (£2550)
Kirkcaldy foodbank (£550)
Cottage Centre (£550)

There's still £300 in the pot so we will sponsor another players shirt.

I'd assume so. I looked with a couple of hours to go and the cheapest one then was £130.

I had the pleasure of sampling a nip of it a couple of weeks ago and can assure you it's top notch stuff.

As an 11 yr old Speyside, it was always bound to be fairly pleasant stuff. Very Happy

When I first retired I spent four years as a Distillery tour guide. One of my fellow guides had a saying. He said:
Drinking a Single Malt is just like making love. The worst I ever had, was just bloo*y marvellous!

Aye those were the days Wink
