I love scotch.... scotchy scotchy scotch

Wednesday 3rd of February saw The Crown and Anchor (our pub/restaurant situated in the semi-rural village of Barugh Green, Barnsley) play host to a whisky tasting evening.

Whisky expert Ed Daly (who can usually be found at The Broadfield on Abbeydale Road) talked customers through a list of 5 delectable Scotch whiskies – with plenty of tasting included too, of course.


Hailing from the Scottish Lowlands, (where there are just three distilleries left today) Glenkinchie was the lightest and easiest to drink out of all the whiskies on offer. Cereal and barley flavours appeared initially, before giving way to citrus and vanilla tones.
