Taste Original Scottish Whisky

By Viator, December 2013

5 121 Reviews | Add your review

The Scots love alcohol. In Edinburgh, their insatiable need for pubs has produced some very nice establishments to visit, including ancient hostelries in the Grassmarket where Scottish folk music regales visitors on Sunday evenings.

Of course, whether in Edinburgh, Glasgow or the Highlands, the drink of choice has to be malt whisky. Scotland’s four main whisky-producing regions are the Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside and Islay, so if you’re visiting, take a distillery tour to see how Scotland’s ‘water of life’ is lovingly produced and aged.

In Edinburgh, gastronomic whisky-tasting tours delve into the ins and outs of Scotch whisky appreciation: color, body, nose, palate and finish. Experts also reveal the complex art of blending whisky and malt, and the traditions, lore and recipes that give each blend its individual appeal.
