Questions, Advice and Samples

People in the UK get nervous when they are asked if they are good at something. They say things like: “I know a bit about it” or “Aye, am no too bad at that”. Well not Lucas and I. We are not modest in any way. Ask our friends.

We know quite a bit about Whisky. We know quite a bit about Edinburgh and Scotland. A lot you may say. We don’t know everything, but anything we don’t know, we can find out. If there is any burning question that you have or any advice you may need, please tweet it to us at:, email us at, find us on Facebook at Edinburgh Whisky Blog, send carrier pigeons, smoke signals or just come to Edinburgh and if we can, we will take you out for a wee dram and try and answer your queries. And these questions can be anything. What whisky should I buy for my Dad? Where is a nice hotel in Edinburgh? Should I ask this girl out? (The answer to the third question is always yes – who dares wins)

At the end of each month, we will pick our favourite questions and send some weird and wonderful drams. How good’s that!


Now obviously it is fun to read about whisky, but it is far more fun to drink it! If you have read one of our reviews, and you quite fancy tasting it for yourself, this is a rather spiffing website: . They look after us by giving us  5% off and a free Glencairn Glass  when you type  EdinburghWhisky01 into the delivery details on page 2, when buying a 70cl bottle. They also have a marvellous section where you can buy any of their spirits by the dram! It is like having access to God’s drinks cabinet! . Read our review, order yourself up a wee dram, taste it, disagree with us completely, write to us and tell us that we are idiots and that we shouldn’t give up our day jobs. We can’t wait to read that!

Right, off for a wee dram myself. Looking forward to reading any questions that come along.
