Spencer from Sioux Falls, South Dakota in the US is the lucky guy, who has just won himself a bottle of quite the unique dram, Talisker 30 YO!
This is a very special Whisky, a bottle of which goes for about... oh, half a grand! So we thought why not contact the winner and ask him a few slightly nosy questions about his plans for this tasty stuff. But to protect his Home Bar, we’ve decided against publishing his photo and full name.
We have just carefully and lovingly packed his bottle and sent it on its way across the Atlantic to its very proud new owner in the American Great Plains.
While lucky Spencer awaits his singular delivery, what follows is our Q&A with him about his plans for this very special dram.
Hey, Spencer, what made you decide to take part in our giveaway?
"Ever since I started to really enjoy Scotches, I've always thought it would be fun to be able to drink one that was actually older than I am. They tend to fall a bit outside of my budget, so I thought it was worth a shot to enter your Giveaway."
What types of spirits do you like to drink?
"My preference is for Scotch and Whiskey, but I do enjoy many other spirits. I have a drink with or after a meal every now and then. On special occasions, I get out some of my finer spirits."
What do you expect this Talisker 30 YO to be like?
"I'm not quite sure what to expect from it, as everything I’ve had in the past pales in comparison to this Whisky. What I do know is that I'll definitely be saving it for a special occasion."
Do you have a home bar? If so, what other drinks are in it?
"I do keep a home bar. Right now, some of the highlights in it are Glenmorangie 18, Glenlivet 12, a bottle of Crown XR Red and my odd, but nearly complete, collection of the Absolut Cities Series Vodkas."
Are you planning on drinking this bottle of Talisker 30?
"I definitely do plan on drinking it - eventually. I just don't know quite when that’s going to happen, but I will definitely be sharing it with my father."
