A spirits aficionado who discovered Scotch when he was in the military. He began his collection in the 80's and at the same time began looking for more exotic Scotch tastings. He researched all the distillery locations in Scotland and became particularly interested in "Silent Stills", along with anything else that caught his eye. He amassed 1100 bottles, sourced from the LCBO, independent distributors in Canada and USA, independent bottlers and distilleries in Scotland, and retailers in the USA. He would have “Whiskey Weekends” at his country house and invite an eclectic mix of drinkers to sample any whiskey they desired which were all displayed in my “Whiskey Room”, which over the years became a coveted ticket. It is a change in lifestyle that is bringing these spirits to auction.
