the_balvenie_whisky_academy.jpgDo you remember those old Sally Struthers commercials for ICS? Y'know, "Do you want to make more money? Sure, we all do." That's how we feel about whisky...sure, we all want to know more about it. That's why we're so excited about the announcement of The Balvenie Whisky Academy, which we heard about from What Does John Know?.
