Keep Walking

I'm not the worlds greatest fan of whisky, but I'll be the first to admit that it most definitely has it's place. It's one of the handful of things in this world that will for evermore be inextricably linked with Scotland, and none more so than Johnnie Walker.

It is therefore a touch ironic that this fantastic 2009 advert for the brand comes as the Kilmarnock plant, home of Johnnie Walker whisky from day one, closes due to the traditional "business needs".

If you listen close, you can hear Mr Walker turning in his grave.

PS - Better quality version here.

I must confess to being a whisky man though prefer a nice bottle of Oban to Johnny Walker... however, this is still black armband news...

Perhaps a wee dram is exactly what you need right now, Steve?

whisky is inextricable linked in my mind to a skiiing bus trip i made with my mother when I was fifteen when I drank half a bottle of Scotch in the back of the bus, snogged two lads and vomited all over myself. My mum didn't stop me because she wanted to 'teach me a lesson.' haven't been able to touch the stuff since

EmmaK - As always, you paint an incredibly attractive picture!

Feeble rant over
