Mehmet and friends get all malted up in the Scottish Highlands on a Whisky Day Trip

Many Thanks to Mehmet and friends for choosing us for a whisky day trip in the Scottish Highlands. The guys were up here as one of them was getting married and they made a getaway to beautiful Dornoch and Embo. Always one of my favourite areas to visit. We had a great day and even latecomer Steffen managed to catch up on the whisky tour frivolities. Hopefully, you guys will come back and join us again.

Big thanks to the folks at Dalmore, Glenmorangie and Clynelish for making the day’s tours and tastings so special.

Whisky FACT OF THE DAY

In March 2018, a rare 60-year-old Macallan whisky fetched HK$7.96 million ($1.01 million) at Bonhams Hong Kong, smashing the record for the most expensive bottle ever sold at auction.

The record lasted barely a dram. A second bottle, also from the 1926 vintage, went for $1.1 million hours later at the same event.
