我係明報副刊嘅專題 - 「遊蘇格蘭酒廠 闖威士忌心臓區」跟住 #詩詩酒樂園 遊威士忌酒廠! 要了解威士忌,首先由威士忌旅遊出發。Speyside 區可説是蘇格蘭威士忌的心藏地區,介紹了第一間正式獲政府發牌的威士忌酒廠The Glenlivet、手工原汁原味本土威士忌 Aberlour Single Malt 以及必試逾500款威士忌的威士忌酒吧The Still at The Dowans Hotel! Cheers!🎉🎉🥃 My spirits feature in Mingpao Daily Newspaper - “Visit the heart of Scotch Whisky Distilleries” Follow #ccwhiskyvoyage to your Scotch whisky distilleries! If u wanna understand more about whisky, it’s a good idea to visit whisky distilleries! Speyside is the heart of Scotch whiskies, as they have most distilleries built in this region. I’ve introduced The Glenlivet, the 1st legal whisky distillery in Scotland; Aberlour, the local indigenous whisky distillery using water & barley from Aberlour; and the must visit whisky bar - The Still at Dowans Hotel. Cheers! 🎉🎉🥃 全文/Full article: https://m.mingpao.com/ldy/cultureleisure/dining/20190911/1568140598626/遊蘇格蘭酒廠-闖威士忌心臟區

A man’s world 😎😝❤️🥃 #glenfiddich #balvenie #monkeyshoulder #singlemalt #scotland #dufftown #dowanshotel
There's something to be said for the Highlands-  just gobsmacks you with its beauty! You could over do the whisky bit  though specially  if youre in Speyside ( Dowans is definitely the best place to park yourself) - too many distilleries to choose from!  Instead  would recommend picnics to savour the wonderful outdoors, some history in the castles, gourmet meals in some exquisite restaurants and just enough distillery trips to let the angel have her fair share! "The whisky is truly delicious in these parts ", she purred hedonistically. Enjoy the 4 pics attached. #dowans #dowanshotel  #bestnatureshots #travelscotland #travelindia #travelphotography #travelblogger #travel #whiskeylover #spirits #craftspirits #johnniewalker #glendale #fashionblogger #fashion #castle

Playing with Fire... Follow @advocatesofmalt for more!  You don’t get to be a World-recognised Distillery by standing still. Well, it’s less fun if you do, anyway!  You may recall that a little while ago the Advocates visited the Glenfiddich Distillery and tasted a whisky matured in IPA barrels. That whisky is part of Glenfiddich’s experimental series - whiskies born from a dabbling by the Distillery’s Malt Master of new ways to infuse the quintessential Glenfiddich flavour with exciting twists.  Fire & Cane is the latest experimental series release - a marrying by the Distillery of a smoky Glenfiddich whisky in sweet rum casks.  Described as a ‘bold fusion of campfire smokiness and toffee sweetness’, Fire & Cane promised to be a unique twist on the Glenfiddich formula that the Islay-passionate Advocate couldn’t wait to sample!  However, the Advocate was a little disappointed. While the toffee and gentle smoke of a peat campfire are certainly evident, the smokily inclined Advocate couldn’t help but think the Malt Master could have pushed them even further.  After a fair debate, the Advocates concluded that while as a whisky this is a very nice standalone release, it didn’t quite live up to its promise.  The Advocates rate this a ‘worth a try’ 6.5 Stills.  Check it out - https://www.glenfiddich.com/uk/collection/experimental-series/fire-and-cane/  @masterofmalt https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/glenfiddich/glenfiddich-experimental-series-fire-and-cane-whisky/  #advocatesofmalt #livingthedram #whisky #dramgram #whiskylovers #scotch #dowanshotel #speyside #mot #slainte #fire&cane #glenfiddich #drinkresponsibly
Annamh - Scots Gaelic for 'rare cask' Follow @advocatesofmalt for more!  Those devoted advocateofmalters among you will recall that a few weeks ago one of the Advocates was treated to an epic tasting at the Aberlour Distillery in Speyside. While there, the Advocate experimented, first hand, with the skills of double-cask maturation (Still (Geddit?!) to follow!). Having mastered the art, the Advocate called in at the Distillery Shop to look around and, of course, indulge in a bottle of Aberlour’s finest golden nectar. However, confronted by a range of different bottlings, ages and batches, the Advocate was lost as to choice. Fortunately the ever-fantastic Distillery staff were on hand and gave the Advocate a blind tasting of a range of bottles.  This Cask Annamh was the Advocate’s preferred tipple on that day.  It’s a bold release yet one that perfectly showcases Aberlour’s passion for mixing cask maturations – this, in fact, being a maturation of European Sherry Casks and two American Oak Casks. Despite the predominance of American Oak, it’s actually the sweet sherry that shines through here, treating the nose to a smooth and rich aroma, while tantalising the tongue and pallet with citrusy fruits. What sold the Advocate on the day was actually the rather delightful and well balanced finish.  An enthusiastic 9 Stills from the Aberlour-ing Advocate.  While we’re here, the rather pleasant waterfall is The Linn Falls found by walking up the path by the Distillery. Although the water isn’t used by the Distillery, the walk is definitely worth the journey. Those who steel their compositions and walk past The Linn Falls will (finally) be rewarded with the treat that is the Glenallachie Distillery at the other end!  @aberlourdistillery  #advocatesofmalt #dowanshotel #dram19 #livingthedram #whisky #dramgram #letthedeedshow #whiskylovers #scotch #speyside #mot #slainte #drinkresponsibly
Be Still, the beating heart of Dowans Follow @advocatesofmalt for more!  While @spirit_speyside , the Advocates were treated to the luxuries of The Dowans Hotel - a boutique gem of indulgence nestled in the heart of Malt Whisky country.  Of course, while the sumptuous cuisine and attentive hosting were Speyside-leading, it was the hotel’s Still that took the Advocates’ heart.  With over 500 whiskies spanning the whole Scotch World and beyond, the Advocates were well catered for! Call and visit if you’re ever in Aberlour!  #advocatesofmalt #dowanshotel #dram19 #livingthedram #whisky #dramgram #whiskylovers #scotch #speyside #mot #slainte #drinkresponsibly
Scotland memories round 5 : one of the first place we visited in Speyside for the the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival was the Dowans Hotel in Aberlour. A really nice place with an amazing whisky bar and selection. I wish everything in this room could be mine... 😅 I tasted a Glenburgie 17yo single cask from The Distillery Reserve Collection and a Glendronach 15 revival for my friend. Both were great whiskies and I discovered Glenburgie which seems to produce amazing whiskies and still under the radar... I know there are a lot of great places for a dram in this area but definitely a place to visit ! Have you already been there ? Cheers everyone ! 🥃😎 . Souvenirs d'Écosse, round 5 : l'un des premiers endroits que nous avons visités dans le #speyside pour le #soswf2019 fut le #dowanshotel à #aberlour. Un très bel endroit avec un incroyable bar à whisky et une superbe sélection. J'adorerai avoir une pièce comme celle là à la maison... 😅 J'ai goûté un Single cask #glenburgie 17 ans de #thedistilleryreservecollection et un #glendronach 15 Revival  pour mon ami. Tous les deux étaient excellents et j'ai découvert Glenburgie, qui semble produire des whiskies incroyables et plutôt méconnus du grand public car utiliser en grande partie dans les blends Ballantine's... Je sais qu'il y a beaucoup d'excellents endroits pour des drams dans cette région, mais celui-ci vaut vraiment le détour ! Avez-vous déjà eu l'occasion d'y aller ? Santé à tous ! 🥃😎
Found a few #whiskies here in speyside at the #dowanshotel Enjoying a pour of #glendronach 24yr
A Scottish Tea Follow @advocatesofmalt for more!  While one of the Advocates journeyed to Balmoral to have tea with the Queen (although it turned out his agent hadn’t told her he was coming so she wasn’t there...) the other Advocate was treated to an afternoon tea @dowanshotel.  A bounty of savoury and sweet treats in the Hotel’s beautiful surroundings were complemented by a smooth Aultmore 12 (ignore the glass - it is Aultmore 12!). Although the Advocates work in a team, this Advocate couldn’t help but think that had the other been with him this could have been another 8 Stills. The Afternoon Tea was an easy 10!  One for a future purchase and review!  Check back later for some choice Dowans Hotel views!  #advocatesofmalt #livingthedram #dowanshotel #aultmore #whisky #dramgram #whiskylovers #scotch #dram19 #speyside #mot #slainte #drinkresponsibly
Our next whiskies were enjoyed at the Glenfiddich Distillery. The first was Glenfiddich’s #01 IPA Experiment - an interesting choice from the #advocatesofmalt who are not IPA fans!  This is an Experimental series whisky - and one that should be labelled a success! The whisky was finished in casks seasoned with India Pale Ale.  The hops are definitely present adding an enduring sweetness to a fresh and zesty tipple.  The Advocates love something a bit different and rate this an exciting 8 Stills.  Have a look here for a few tasting notes - https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/glenfiddich/glenfiddich-experimental-series-ipa-cask-finish-whisky/?utm_content=glenfiddich/glenfiddich-experimental-series-ipa-cask-finish-whisky&currencyCode=GBP&utm_source=database&utm_medium=base&utm_campaign=mom_base_1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIp7a786__4QIVJjbTCh06YQb2EAQYASABEgJoaPD_BwE @masterofmalt  #advocatesofmalt #livingthedram #whisky #dramgram #whiskylovers #scotch #dram19 #dowanshotel #speyside #mot #slainte #ipa #glenfiddich #drinkresponsibly
Tasted our first Speyside Whisky Festival 2019 whiskies with The Boutique-Y Whisky Company @whiskyshopdufftown. This is an 11 year old dram distilled at The Linkwood Distillery.  A great start to the journey @spirit_speyside! This easy drinker is a real breakfast whisky. A delicate spice with light fruity finish.  The Advocates rate this a smooth 8 Stills.  The experts say... https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/linkwood/linkwood-11-year-old-batch-5-that-boutiquey-whisky-company-whisky/?srh=1 @masterofmalt  #advocatesofmalt #livingthedram #whisky #dramgram #whiskylovers #scotch #dowanshotel #speyside #mot #slainte #drinkresponsibly #dram19
