Scotland Bound, Scotland Bound, I Wish Y’all Were Also Scotland Bound”……
(I hope to avoid Gordon Lightfoot litigation for use of “Alberta Bound” lyrics):
The best way to prepare for a sennight in bonnie Scotland is to partake in some fine malts prior to boarding. Loch Lomond has just released Original, a retromalt from the prior century. Balblair (Martha’s fav) is an awesome malt from the northern Highlands; let’s taste its 2005 vintage (13-yr) at 46%. From the good folks W&M, Fettercairn (my fav) 1997 vintage (19-yr) via Murray-McDavid. Let’s try the first bottling of Kilkerran (9-yr from Sherry Casks) that told the world that it would be a cracker single malt. It wasn’t promising at 3 to 8 years and then at 9 … wow… it was brilliant! From the sub-continent, we will taste Amrut Cask Strength (non-peated). When did you last have a dram of the great Ledaig single malt from the Isle of Mull? For good reason, it’s the jewel of the Hebrides’… as it is where the famed Smokehead hails. Yes, a fine flight of whisky is offered.
Please do come along and invite your friends as ‘good whisky is made
great when shared among friends’. We’ll have lots of good food to go with it.
