ED2012 Theatre Review: Villains, Heroes And Adventurers (The Whisky Anorak)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

“Real boys own adventure stories” says John Mark Di Ciacca, while describing one daring exploit, around which this unusual whisky tasting is based. During the course of the event, I glean many a fact or an anecdote I shall be quoting down the pub in future, as we jump from The Beatles’ ‘Yellow Submarine’ to some biscuit crumbs that sold for 7000 odd pounds. Yet at times the whisky connection feels a bit forced; John Talbot Clifton, whose whole life was an adventure story, gets a good chunk of the presentation but without discernible link to any of the three whiskies. But once it gets sharpened up it will be a great event for both novices and old hands. And you know something? I don’t even like whisky that much.

Valvona And Crolla Scottish Foodhall @ Jenners, 7-25 Aug (not 12,14,15,19), times vary.
