Several colleagues have just asked me where I’d recommend for a short whisky-related trip – a weekend sort of thing. At first, I was completely down the distillery route; a short, sharp trip to the Lowlands, a longer saunter through Speyside or perhaps a week in Islay. All would deliver something.
But that leaves a thought. How really interested are you in one lyne arm to the next? If you know how whisky is distilled once, do you need to know again? Is much down to the person representing the distillery or your interest in the subject?
