A Taste of History with Glenfiddich at the Spoke Club (via Good Food Revolution)

A Taste of History with Glenfiddich at the Spoke Club One doesn’t simply walk into a liquor store with a fist full of cash looking for an expensive hobby.  Scotch lovers are a refined, passionate bunch who are serious about their drink.

Considering it’s under 9$ in the LCBO, what do you have to lose?

Thanks, Max!
