This will truly be a unique experience with several notable Scotches. In addition, there will be another chance to taste the Welsh single malts as well as a new offering from India as well. From personal experience the Welsh scotches have improved over the years and those of us who had a chance to taste them wee very impressed. Please note the time shift 7:00 registration.
