Classic whisky & a Daniel Wellington Watch PROMO Code

Classic whisky Daniel Wellington

A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to choose a Daniel Wellington watch. I have not worn a watch in 10 years, but when I saw the beautiful lines of these watches, I changed my mind. The watch I chose was named “Classic Durham”. It has an eggshell white face and an elegant light brown leather strap. Best of all, it is ultra thin and does not bother me during the day. The Daniel Wellington designs are classic, simple and crisp.  You can showcase your personal style through the choice of silver or rose gold faces.  They also have a great variety of both leather and NATO interchangeable straps.

The definition of Enigma is a thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand.   Will this Bowmore Enigma  show its secrets?  The Bowmore Enigma is bottled for the Travel Retail market.

From Orkney island: Ballantine’s Scapa

Ballantines Scapa Signature Edition

I have often written about our love for Ballantine’s whisky.  The Ballantine’s Finest was the first blended dram to earn our Divine rating.  Not even our beloved Johnnie Walker Black could achieve that.  We try to extend our Ballantine’s whisky collection whenever we can. Chivas Brothers launched four Ballantine’s expressions under the new line, Signature Distillery Editions.   Scapa (targeted at the Korean market), Glenburgie (release for travel retail), Miltonduff and Glentauchers.
