Pot Still launches women only tasting sessions

A wiser man than me once told me that he had only two vices; women and whisky. After which he’d produce a sly smile and inform me that he wasn’t sure which he had found to be more dangerous.

The old adage of Murphy's Law, created by my late, great uncle General Audey Murphy (unconfirmed family tie at time of writing) reads 'if it can go wrong, it probably will and at the worst possible time.'

Sean Murphy: learning tact and tradition - and my first tasting

The following blog is the first one bereft of my mentor Kenny and like my life, is all the poorer for it. I guess this is as good a time as any to do what I should've done earlier and dedicate this to Kenny, who sadly passed away last year. If you didn't know the man then you've missed out and if you did well, that which I write here will have significance to you. I hope that the next time you raise a Glencairn; be it filled with  a malt, blend or Bourbon, that you'll say a toast to him. Thank you.
