Yes, I did it. Encouraged by endless advertising I decided to try out the 118118 ask us anything service by texting the all important question “when was the oldest whisky made”.
And, the answer was “first written record was in Ireland in 1905”.
I have proof from the BBC that there is a bottle being made before 1901, see article on the BBC.
So how good is the 118 ask us anything service really?
I will email them to find out and keep you posted.
