Uisguebeatha (Scotch Whisky) New


(Scotch Whisky – Water of Life)

Originally a drink for the working class, whisky has developed into a group of spirits offering incredible depth and variety. However, you don’t always need to get caught up in tasting notes and identifying complexities:  remember that a quality whisky is like a quality wine; if you like it, then it is good!
