A journey into the world of Whisky, starting with the staples of the home of Whisky, Scotland, and moving into rare, unknown and oversea territories..
What started with bourbon (and coke, sorry) matured over time and the Ardbeg, Springbank, Benriach, Bladnoch, Caol Ila and more followed.
With storage units close to collapse, a recent comment by my wife; "No more drinking whisky" has led me further into the collectable world. Foraging online, specialist Whisky sites and now, an annual 'pilgrimage' to places north of the border.
Another year, another trip to Islay and how lucky with the weather was I?
Due to this being a family holiday, there’s no Feis visits, but still a distillery or two gets a look in.
This time round, the usual trip to Ardbeg was made, as was a tasting at Laphroaig.
