As a bit of a whisky nerd, I've decided to to challenge myself involving something I love, in an effort to raise money on behalf of my 6 year old daughter's best friend.

From Burns' Night 2016 to Burns' Night 2017, I will attempt to sample 366 whiskies from 366 different distilleries/brands at the equivalent of one dram (25ml) per day (2016 being a Leap Year).

Each sample tasting will be filmed along with some information on the distillery/brand itself, and uploaded to, as part of a review database - and also to prove I am completing the challenge!

It would be great for donations to match the number of whiskies I will attempt to sample - 10p per whisky would be a donation of £36.60 and so on (£1 per whisky would be even better!)

I am also looking for donations of whisky! I only need a 25ml sample (half a miniature bottle) and ideally just the entry-level release from each unique distillery or brand. I have a list which is updated to cross out those I have obtained at - can you help?
