Thanks. I've toured the Highlands and stopped at a few distilleries but never took the tours. The trip was about the natural beauty for us. Were you in Tomintoul? There's a place there called The Whiskey Castle with 500+ single malts. We tasted some there and brought home a Provenance bottling I haven't seen in the US. I still haven't opened it.
Just one more sip.
We did not go to Tomintoul.
We were in Edinburgh and the Deanston distillery was close by.
What food! What drink! What people!
We were at "the Whisky Experience" where there is a room
with 5000 bottles behind glass.
Our supplier, Jeff Karlovitch, has a similar collection in his home.
Hope to win this trip again some day....
I'm sorry, the winery says that's an allocated item!
Yeah, we did the Whiskey Experience too. Fun.
Just one more sip.
+1 A little kitschy but a good primer on Scotch for non-Scotch people.
Thanks to you, I am now a Scotch convert. I tried the Lagavulin 16 the other night and was blown away. What a stunning drink.
Thanks again for all the great ideas. I have picked up a few bottles for myself during this search. I am sure my wife will appreciate ($$$) this new found taste/hobby as well
+1....and I am not a Lagavulin lover...might as well suck on a iodine swab. My father loves it so I keep a bottle around and have tried to like it on several occasions.
Say NO to Shiraz!
A little off topic Clrv, but I have learned the hard way that the cork tops can be problematic over time. I used to keep my bottles standing up, which dried out the corks, which meant a few lost corks in the bottles. I now keep them all on their sides, as recommended to me.
I recommend to keep the bottles standing, from what i've heard the direct contact with high alcohol could attack the cork and then you might experience some nasty taste in your scotch. Maybe an urban legend? I've never experienced some lost cork in the bottle.
You should preferably keep the bottles in a humidified environment, same as for your wine. That should prevent your scotch corks from drying out. Or even better: drink them up before the cork dries out This message has been edited. Last edited by: MoselleLuxemburg,
