Well, it seems like whisky has entered the infamous 'Black Chair', with one gentleman from Halifax, taking up the challenge to choose Scotch Malt Whiskies as his chosen specialised subject on Last night's Mastermind. Duncan Mitchell, an Optometrist faced the fearsome John Humphrys (but not as terrifying as Magnus Magnusson) over 16 questions. Duncan, seemingly a cool customer, managed a highly credible 11 points with 2 passes, but sadly fell apart in the general knowledge section with a total 21 points.

Duncan, we salute you sir- and not just for helping bring the name Kilchoman to the general public!!!

If you fancy a go at trying to beat Duncan's score, you can watch the episode again on the BBC iPlayer here: Mastermind 'Whisky Special'

Let us know how you did... ;-)
