Oslo Whiskyfestival er i gang!

Oslo Whiskyfestival has started!

That was rather disappointing! But I got in… Continue reading

Jeg må si at en av høydepunktene for meg er seminaret med David Francis som representerer fra Ardbeg/Glenmorangie. Ikke fordi den godeste Mr. Francis er særlig kjent for meg,… Continue reading
