Whisky Chicks @ Whisky & Alement

2016-02-18 01.06.20

On the 16th Feb I went to Whisky & Alement http://www.whiskyandale.com.au/ I started with a #Boilermaker and then made up my own #whisky tasting… 6 of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society whiskies at this bar… What gets even better, they were the 6 #Islay #SMWS bottles on their list! Whisky & Alement have what is called the Never Ending Cask… a cask of Islay SMWS whisky up on their bar, because it gets topped up it changes all the time, it was VERY good last week.
