Trip to Scotland

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Speyburn distilleryTomorrow I’m off to Scotland.

I was invited by the nice people of Inver House to visit (most of) the distilleries in their portfolio: Pulteney, Balblair, Speyburn and Knockdhu (home of anCnoc).

I’m sure I’ll be able to try great new whisky at each of the distilleries but tomorrow I’ll get in the mood with a Balblair that’s long gone.

    Enjoy your maiden trip, Ruben. With all the whisky knowledge and expertise you obviously already possess, I wonder what visiting the birthplace of the uisge beatha will do for you… Looking forward to your report.

    Happy trails.

  • WhiskyNotes: You're right, it is a refill bourbon cask. Sorry if I suggested otherwise, but I believe a single cask can never be 80% sherry and 20% bourbon like th
  • Tabrulavubeg: I've tried the 18yo Single Cask yesterday. It's really quite good, but from Ruben's conclusion "an exquisite version of this already really good dram"
  • Johan Andersson: Yes this cask is really fantastic. If you did the Cadenhead Warehouse tasting with Grant MacPherson in Campbeltown 2013 and until Open Day in May 2014
