Tamdhu Whisky Comes Back to Life in Speyside Scotland

May 22, 2013  |   Contributor: Noah Joseph

Scotland's glens, hills and islands are pocked with distilleries and while most are hard at work producing whisky, not all of them are active.

You can ask a wine sommelier anything you want about wine, whether it be which type you should drink with pasta or with meats, and they can answer your question and more. Though wine sommeliers are the most popular type of expert, they're not the only ones out there. More and more people are branching off into different areas, from beer and whisk... Read More
