Say "Whisky!"

Today we traveled the Whisky Trail here in the Highlands. We visited three distilleries, namely:


The Glenlivet,

and Cardhu.

At each distillery we learned more and more about the process of turning three basic ingredients of water, yeast and barley into fine Malt Whisky. We got to taste the best 12 year whisky from each distillery and both agreed that we liked the Glenfiddich sample the best, with Cardhu coming in second and Glenlivet a distant third. However, all the distilleries were beautiful and had very nice and knowledgeable staff. It really was too bad that we were driving our motos because I would have loved to continue following the trail and partake of a lot more whisky. Hmmm!
