You can’t grow up in Scotland without encountering the water of life, whisky. It’s more than an alcoholic beverage. It’s a way of life. As one man put it: ‘Whisky is a successive series of emotional waves as affecting as the lilt of Gaelic singing’.
Whisky is about stories: Glass of double malt in one hand, fiddles resting on the table, the sounds of the session still circling like swallows in your head. One of the company will take a deep contented breath and say ‘I was once …’ The stories need not be true but they are often based on some truth. Whisky is not supplied with the album but it’s highly recommended. Slainte Mhath
