So, I said I would open this on today's Leith Whisky Trail 👍 Then I remembered that, unlike most of the old blends I find, VAT69 bottles from the 60s usually have corks rather than screw tops. Having made the mistake before of opening an old bottle in front of guests and watching the cork crumble into tiny pieces, I decided to open this bottle this morning before the tour and tasting start. Unlike the last bottle, the cork is intact 🙌🏼 And the whisky smells amazing. Just saying 😊 #whisky#leith#leithwhiskytrail#blends#blendedwhisky#vat69#openyourbottles#scotchwhisky#whiskyhistory#tour#whiskytour
The Oban Distillery was my first Scottish Distillery visit quite a few years ago. I was excited to go back and revisit this past week with my @rascalandthorn whisky tour group. The Oban 14 Year was the first Single Malt that I knew I wanted in my Spirits Cabinet over 20 years ago, so it has a special place in my heart. It's a beautiful location in the middle of the town of Oban. Most distilleries these days can be found outside in the countryside. .......... We did a Premier Tour which includes a Private Tour of the distillery and a tasting in the Distillery Manager's office overlooking the entrance to the distillery. Expressions included the standard range, but also the Distillery Exclusive and the Macleans, a new Limited Edition that gives respect to some of the people that have made Oban what it is. ........... I look forward to returning to Oban again to visit this place that really started my Scotch Whisky journey. .......... #saratogawhiskeyclub#singlemalt#scotch#whisky#scotland#whiskytour#oban#obandistillery#dramoftheday#dramagram#instadram#whiskygram#whiskytasting#whiskyporn#whiskytime#whiskylover#sláinte
Scotch whisky is distilled twice, but Auchentoshan is one of the rare factories doing triple distillation in Scotland. The idea is to have a softer taste and more delicate flavors. It’s hard to tell the difference as there are smoother whiskies from Scotland but they sure have a nice selection! And provide a lovely tour if you ever have time on your way to Glasgow!
Ardbeg Drum. Интересный опыт дегустации в портовом кабаке:) Традиционная дымная Айла с довыдержкой в бочках из под карибского рома. Релиз шагает по стране, теперь и в Fiddler's Green. Пейте хороший виски! Кому очень нужно, могу прихватить бутылочку на Ardbeg в начале сентября:) Релиз не разочарует 100%!
