SPeyside Vs Isaly
I agree with you, peat freak. I too was at the Speyside festival, which was a roaring success. Yet, lo and behold no mention of it in WM and no WM reps present at all. I find this highly confusing considering that over half of ALL distilleries are based in the Speyside region. Why, was it not The Macallan which was WM's "best maly in the world"?? In that case why oh why was there no preview? I mean surely being able to visit MAcallan, Aberlour, Glen Moray, ALL Dufftown distilleries (including Kininvie), Cragganmore, Glenfarclas, Strathisla, Dallas Dhu, Benromach and Cardhu to name but a few should be worth reviewing?? Not to mention the multiple tastings from Cadenheads, Easy Drinking Whisky, G&M.....the list is endless
Yet, there is a 2 page run up to the Islay festival. Don't get me wrong, everyone likes different whiskies, but come on guys, give Speyside a break!!
If it weren't for Glenfiddich, then there wouldn't be nearly as much single malts available to us. Glenfiddich were the first to export and others followed suit.
Islay 7 ..........You do the maths
