    Well they were clearly pi$$ed when doing it , that they couldn't tell the difference. Last time I checked there's quite a difference between waste water and whisky...

    well, expect the price of Scotch to go up soon!

    Fortunately for me I don't drink the stuff, much prefer a nice Irish

    I grew up in Dumbarton. I used to love the smell from the distillery when they were brewing up the mash.

    Since Christmas I've had a couple of different bottles of the fine stuff....

    Jura, Chivas, Laphroiag...All taken in moderation, of course!

    Can you tell I'm a single malt type of guy?? LOL!

    I grew up around the Whisky bonds in Edinburgh and my nursery was in the Royal Mile which backed onto the Youngers brewery, the smell from that era will live with me for the rest of my life.
