"If it's not good enough to drink slowly, then it's not worth drinking"

Report from "The Whisky Ship"

Late November the annual whisky fair, the "Whisky Ship", took place in Zürich. As usual I tried lots of nice whiskies and I also attended three ex­cel­lent master classes with Jim McEwan (from Bruichladdich), Peter Currie and Frank McHardy (from Springbank) and Billy Walker (from BenRiach).
