As for knowledge and love of whisky, Wendy could teach any of us more about Single Malts than we already know. They may be fairer but sure as heck aren't the "weaker" sex, when it comes to whisky!

(the only girl I've ever met who even drank whisky only drinks Jack Daniels completely drowned in Coke. Nothing wrong with that, if you fancy that, but still. The same goes for most whisky drinking guys, so it might just be I hang out with the wrong people)

I look like the person in the bottom photo on this page - http://www.peatfreak.com/forum/viewtopi ... 3&start=45
But hopefully without an expression like I've just drunk a mouthful of liquidized, burnt popcorn.
You are joking, I presume. Five minutes wouldn't even get you from the Exhibition Centre station to the SECC itself! Yesterday they refused to sell me a low level train ticket from Queen St to Exhibition Centre because "the train leaves from Glasgow Central Station". I said that you could change at Partick and the man said I'd have to buy two tickets for that! Of course, the free buses were not there again, making a taxi there the only option - especially if I wanted to hit my Masterclass on time.Iain wrote:I spent most of Saturday afternoon at WL, and I thought it was excellent. Very easy to get to and from by train from the city centre (just a 5 minute ride).
Nick Brown wrote:. I think the transport issue needs to be worked on. The SECC feels like a venue designed for access by car, which simply can't work with a whisky event.
