How bad theatre results in a great eve

We’ve seen some terrific theatre over the last few months… but it can’t always be a complete hit or ‘wow’ reaction!

No surprise, a recent new production that SHOULD be good was actually a dud.

The audience was so collectively stunned that when the lights dimmed at the end of the performance, there was a resounding silence. Followed by an uncomfortably polite smattering of lacklustre applause.

No… I will not give further details or trash the folks involved – they were clearly sincere in their efforts. It just did NOT work. (more…)

Tasting Notes from 15 Sept 2011

It became a  popularity contest between different regions and geographies as small pegs of multiple whiskys were sniffed, swirled, swallowed, savoured and yes – much discussed! (more…)

Tasting Notes from 18 July 2013

In a slight departure from our standard format, we tried ‘blind’ four selections in rapid succession before they were revealed. Followed by a 5th whisky and a rum.
