The Glenlivet Tasting Competition

Whisky in 3D? surely not??

So far, we've only seen one movie in the "new 3D" format at the cinema: Toy Story 3.

Proclaimed by Mark Kermode as "the greatest film trilogy of all time", it really did come to life and brought a whole new dimension to cinematic story-telling.

Never ones to be left behind by technology, here at, we're finally entering the 3D world!

Well sort of. Instead of just the regular 2D 'here's-our-thoughts-on-a-whisky' posts, we've decided to launch our first official 'in-the-flesh' Caskstrength tasting.... and we want you to come along....

On St Andrews Day, (Tuesday 30th November) we will be hosting a fabulous tasting in London with some of the good folk from The Glenlivet. The venue will be:

Boisdale Of Belgravia,

15 Eccleston Street,

Belgravia, SW1W 9LX

Along with The Glenlivet's Brand Ambassador Phil Huckle, We'll be going through some excellent examples from The 'livet catalogue for your delectation and delight... and something really very interesting and slightly mysterious too...

There are 15 places up for grabs here- If you’d like to join us, it couldn't be simpler.

Send us an email to saying:

“Me, please. I’d like to come along and drink some Glenlivet with you.”

And it gets better. If you can't make it into London, Fear not. Our friends at Edinburgh Whisky Blog will be hosting a similar Glenlivet tasting up in their home town, on the same night!!

A few house rules first, however:

1.You must be over the age of 18 Years and state your Date Of Birth in the email. (pretty obvious this one)

2.You must be able to get to the venue for 6pm on 30th November. We will be starting promptly!

3. This is a free event and we'll be drawing 15 names from a hat next Friday 12th November, so get emailing now...!
