I don't have a lot of time to post on the forums, but am certainly looking forward to grabbing the chance to read all your entries and if I know an answer, I will supply it. I have been loosely interested in whisky since 1971, the first time I visited Islay, at just 16 and it has grown through the years. I have visited over 70 distilleries in the last 3 years, many of them, many times, but I am a bit of a cheat, as I run distillery tours. People actually pay me to go (excuse me while I take some time for mad laughter, here
Favourite visit is probably Bruichladdich, Best value tour is Aberlour, Prettiest place to work, Bunnahabhain, Nicest distillery folk - almost any Islay distillery, Nicest person in Whisky? Bruichladdich manager, Duncan McGillivray, an honour previously shared with the much missed Drew Sinclair of Dalmore, Best thing in the whisky industry? An old distillery being re-opened! Adbeg, Bruichladdich, Glendronnach, Glenglassaugh, the wonderful line carries on. Alternatively, a new one being buillt.. Come on Blackwood, give me another excuse to visit Shetland again.
Looking forward to talking with you all,
