When I was last in Scotland, I was still under 18, detested whisky, and a pescetarian (a ‘phase’ which lasted a whole two years, thank you very much!) Now, at 24, I appreciate a good single malt (I blame my father — he collects them), willing to eat everything under the sun (really, I’ve tried roaches and chicken feet, so I think haggis is doable), and item #2 on my bucket list is Gerard Butler – just kidding! (Read: so not kidding, but he’s getting to his mid-forties now, so maybe we should just stay with ‘I’m kidding’…)
Jokes aside though, (not to say I joke about attractive men in kilts- has everyone seen ‘Outlander’?!) I think I’m of the age where I can take to some good scotch, hold my liquor like a barrel (OK, so that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but I can hold a good few drinks… OK, if you’re family reading this – THAT WAS ONE TIME!)
Anyway, the whisky trail: a 3 day excursion,making your way through distilleries, and ‘tasting’ some well-aged liquid gold. Ummm, yes? Or should I say ‘aye’?
