Saturday 21st May is World Whisky Day and to celebrate, we asked Diageo Brand Ambassador Donald Colville to join us for a preview tasting.

· Cardhu gold reserve

· Dalwhinnie Distillers edition

We will also be hosting a live whisky tasting with the organiser of World Whisky Day, Blair Bowman, on the day itself – this Saturday – at 11.30am also on The Scotsman Facebook page.
