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: It says 'single cask Scotch whisky' on the label, so yes, technically it can even contain a bit of Girvan grain. Not that it matters a lot though.
  • kallaskander: Hi there, could be a teaspooned blenders cask... technically not a single malt then.... that seems more probable than letting an IB bring out the fir
  • Glenn Vanbellingen: If you put the 12 y origin at 40% head to head with the 12 y origin 46% you see it immediately or better you taste it immediately.
