It is that time of the year again. I look back at all the whisky that I tasted and rated during 2017 and see how many whiskies I rated as ‘Divine’. From this, I choose my Whisky of the Year 2017. Always a fun process and a great way to look back on what happened during the year. Past winners include the Ballantine’s Limited Edition 17 yo Scapa, Kavalan Solist Ex-Bourbon Cask, Ardbeg Super Nova 2009 and the Glengoyne 21 yo.

By the beginning of November all the various Festive Season Catalogues come out and it makes for fun reading. My personal favourite is the Norman Goodfellows Festive Catalogue and this year is no exception. The Festive Catalogue is bursting with amazing gift packs and specials. An overwhelming variety to warm any wine and spirit lovers’ heart.
It list time of the year again. Reviewing the year and evaluating what has happened. I look at what was nice to drink, what whisky I must put on my Christmas List and what whisky I need to use for cooking. I draft my TOP 5 lists and this is the list of my Top 5 Blends 2017. Blended whiskies that not only taste great, but is affordable too. Whiskies you can easily buy as a gift for someone. These blends all retail for under R700 and you can buy them with confidence.
The count down to Christmas and year end has begun. Most shops have put up Christmas decorations and everywhere festive lights and colorful baubles are glittering already. In just over a month it is the biggest gift giving event of the year. The mad rush to get the perfect gift has started. There are Festive Catalogues filled to the brim with gift ideas.
