While reading some of your articles on Laphroaig I came across Bessie Williamson's name whom I knew many years ago ( I used to stay in Laphroaig ) but I can't remember Ian Henderson.
Back in 1966 I believe my grandfather Tom Anderson was acting manager my father also Tom was mashing, I wondered if anyone has information regarding my grandfather.

I have had two recent experiences of whisky education, one good and one bad and I think its time the drinks companies put more effort into making swure the people who are promoting their bands know what they are talking about.
I was amazed to see a top chef an the television refer to Jack Daniel's as a bourbon. This is not correct. Jack is a Tennessee whiskey. It is not a bourbon because it is filtered through charcoal, something not allowed under the laws regulating bourbon.
Thankfully my faith was restored by a bartender who set a customer right on this issue.
On a recent trip to Scotland I had the opportunity to visit the Dallas Dhu distillery (although closed and now a museum).
Although I could not purchase any whisky there (bad timing, none was available at the gift shop), I subsequently found a 35cl bottle distilled in 1982 at a local whisky store. Being that the distillery is no longer in service, is this bottle valuable and/or will it become more valuable the longer I keep it. I thank you in advance!
