Musky is planning to invade some distilleries in 2015.

Postby Muskrat Portage » Sun Jun 23, 2013 2:34 am

I'm working on visiting (invading in force*) a number of distilleries in May 2015. This will be ol' Muskies' retirement trip. What I'm looking for is 1)some information on hiring a tour van versus self drive. Also, 2)any opinions on which distilleries you'd recommend seeing would be appreciated. What you've liked, what you haven't, and so forth. I've got a list of 25 myself, but I'm trying to tighten things up a bit.

Feel free to drop a PM or post any advice you might have. I'd love to do a whisky making class but don't know if there'll be an opportunity. Hopefully I've started planning far enough in advance... and yes Laggy is definitely on my "must go to list"
(*When I say invade in force, there will be four of us)
Thanks in advance,

Musky

Well, ol' Musky ol' mate, one of my favorite tours was Glen Grant. The trip up the old brook where we had a lil' whisky with the babbling brooke. it was cool so whisky was even better. Glenfarclas was fun as was Macallan. Tis my understanding that the Islay tours are much different now. Bow, Lappy, Ardbeg.... 8)

Dallas Dhu is a museum so probably is worth the effort. I've heard that Pulteney is pretty good if you can get the "fill your own" bottle. Actually, that was the best Pulteney I ever had.

I thought you started with a list of 25!

Can't miss Springbank, Aberlour good too.

Maybe give us your 25 and we can give you some advice on those?

I always enjoy a visit to Deanston, Balblair, Clynelish and the Islay distilleries. Bladnoch as well is pretty unique and Glen Grant a great visit.
