Whisky Monthly Puzzle – December 2010

Written By Published on: Dec 17th, 2010Category: Lead Story

Now lets get our thinking caps on, this is our first Whisky Crossword and we are hoping to continue this on a monthly basis. Some of the answers are contained within the Whisky Boys site. Next month ( January 2011 ) we will start our year off with a Prize Whisky Crossword, the first correct puzzle drawn from the hat will receive a bottle of Single Malt. Therefore, use this months puzzle to hone your skills for our future crosswords.

If you are interested in sponsoring our new monthly whisky puzzles, please contact Nicola and we’ll let you in on a few ideas we have for the coming months….
