Trip to Scotland May 6 - May 22, 2017

“Drams Come True Part II”

Dear Whisky Friends!

It's almost three years ago now that my Dutch brother-in-law and myself visited two of the most important Scottish Whisky regions being Islay and Speyside. From May 13 until May 25, 2014 we toured or visited the following distilleries: Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Bowmore, Bruichladdich, Kilchoman, Port Ellen, Jura, Caol Ila, Bunnahabhain, Lagavulin, Oban, Ben Nevis, Benromach, Dallas Dhu, Glen Moray, BenRiach, Longmorn, Glen Grant, Cardhu, Cragganmore, Dailuaine, Tormore, Benrinnes, Glenallachie, Glenfarclas, Macallan, Craigellachie, Alt-A-Bhaine, Glenlivet, Balvenie, Glenfiddich, Dufftown, Aberlour, Strathisla, Blair Athol, Dalwhinnie and Edradour. At some of these we stayed for a long time, at others we just visited the Shop. Some do not receive visitors at all so we just stopped for a few pictures. Those distilleries where we did a full tour are marked in blue.

This second trip we will be visiting the Lowlands, Campbeltown, Islay Revisited, Arran, Skye, Mull and a part of the Highlands. Starting out of Rotterdam on the 6th of May we plan to visit the following distilleries where we will enjoy some of the more advanced tours. Here we go with the list: Glengoyne, Auchentoshan, Arran, Springbank, Glengyle, Glen Scotia, Bowmore, Kilchoman, Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Bunnahabhain, Tobermory, Talisker, Glen Ord, Glenmorangie, Dalmore, Clynelish, Balblair, Tomatin, Aberfeldy, Deanston and Tullibardine. On May 22 we will be back in Rotterdam.

We plan to take a lot of pictures again so I can use them in the future over here. It's needless to say we are again tremendously looking forward to it. I do hope we will encounter some of you there but if not you can rest assured that I will tell you all about the trip and the whiskies I have "scored". And cross fingers that we have better luck with the weather this time!

That's it for now! Thanks to all of you for your regular visits. And stay tuned to read all about this trip later on. Because of the trip, my next new review will be posted around May 30, 2017. A chance for you to have a look at some of the older Reviews!
