Once we arrive in Edinburgh out first stop is Leslies Bar (Edinburgh’s finest Ale and Whisky House) at 4pm for a tasting of 4 delicious Glengoyne Single Malt Whiskies.  See decription of event below.

Tasting Glengoyne Highland Single Malt 10YO, 12YO Cask Strength, 17 YO, and 21YO Discussing the largest influence on flavour – Distilation and Maturation. We distil slowly and collect our middle cut unusually early, resulting in sweet, highly approachable New Make, stuffed with esters and fruit. Sample spirit from different stages of the middle cut,giving insight into flavour creation then we’ll move onto maturation, looking at differences between first and second fill sherry casks.”

It truely is a Whisky Boys ideal day out.

If you will be at any of these events today please be sure to say hello.  See you there.
