А вот и судьи, которые будут оценивать выступления наших финалистов! Для меня честь быть частью такой судейской коллегии:)
I was in Glasgow, Scotland we had about 2 hours until our whisky bar tour. I had been up late thinking of what to do in that time when we got up until our tour around, 1pm? I got it. The map shows a half hour drive to the distillery, and a half hour back. We could do this. All I need is 5-10-maybe 15 min at the distillery?! We’ll make it back to the hotel by then for sure. So we were off. Great cab driver. Was a fun chat. Telling us different places to go and giving us basically history lessons on everything we drove by. Got to the distillery. Eyed it out. I’m here for the distillery cask. I want one big bottle and three little ones. And NOW. My cab is waiting... Had to of course buy the pen and the key chain and the mini glencairn tasting glass and a bar mat. Made it back to hotel. 50 pounds for cab. (Or like 85-90$ Canadian) But. Worth it for the dope ass hand filled distillery cask bottles ♂️
It's only Tuesday and we wish it was the weekend already. Time to relax, catch up with some friends and drink some amazing drinks - all served alongside some great food of course...and the weekend can't come quick enough!
Joining us at @platform_gla this weekend it's the amazing @theauchentoshan who will be providing some of these amazing drinks including a classic Auchentoshan & Ale and the refreshing Glasgow Mule and M8 Mojito cocktails! Delighted to have these guys back with us!

So what do you do when you're full of cold, can barely speak and feel like shit?
Drink whisky. Obviously.
@theauchentoshan is one of only 2 Scottish distilleries to triple distill all of their liquids and they are all f***ing delicious. Triple distilling creates very pure liquid that take on the characteristics of their respective barrels superbly. 'Dual Wielding'
A testament the the fact that I am an absolute gaming nerd as well as a whisky geek.
35ml Auchentoshan 3 wood.
15ml Auchentoshan American Oak.
10ml Tawny Port.
4ml of Dashfire grapefruit bitters.
10g demarera sugar.
Stired down in 3:1 increments. Served with a cherry and grapefruit zest.
Twisted old fashioned made with 2 very different Scotches.
The 3 Wood is finished in Olorosso & Pedro Ximenez sherry casks and with the port adds a robust fruitiness to this concoction.
The American Oak provides the sweetness to sooth a sore through.
