Way back in October when Gavin and I were in Edinburgh, we sought out a good local whisky shop for the purposes of treating ourselves to something good, unusual, and slightly rare.
I recently polished off a couple of small bottles that I picked up on my travels in Scotland, and unsurprisingly some tasting notes appeared!
As we left Lagavulin, it became apparent to Gavin and I that we were running out of time. Not that we had planned things out much ahead of time, but it seemed as though it might be rather difficult to squeeze in a proper visit at Ardbeg, and still make it to our return ferry of choice on time. So we ran the .9 of a mile to Ardbeg.
Back when I first visited Glasgow in December 2017, I met a Scottish fella in my hostel dorm room whose father worked for a distillery. Then he showed me a bottle of 30 year old single malt that his dad had snuck out of the distillery for him; smashing!
After leaving Skye, Gavin and I continued our Scottish whisky travels with a stop at Oban.
