A contest for whisky aficionados

Whisky is one of the most complex spirits known to man. A highly revered bottle can cost hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars. If you fancy yourself quite the whisky connoisseur, the people behind Glenrothes (one of my favorites) has a competition for you. Operation Whisky Maker is a contest that will award four very, very lucky individuals the chance to head to the Scottish countryside to become a whisky maker for the company. A seven-day trip will include dining on Highland fare, outdoor activities, and culminate in the blending of your own bespoke whisky, complete with tasting notes and labeling. The contest opens today, and entries must be received by January 31st, 2011. To enter, or to read the official rules and regulations, visit
