Halo Single Malt Mates,
I, your humble Scotch Spirit Master, am in Edinburgh Scotland, pronounced Edinburough, on a mission to get better educated on things Scottish. And particularly educated on single malt scotch whisky!
Yesterday I visited Edinburgh castle and today visited the official residence of Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II. This is Holyrood Palace.
The staff are dressed in ancient Stuart hunting tartans They call it plaids (playeds) and the effect was great. The Royal family is related to the Stuarts, the Scottish Royals.
It is summer in Scotland and I am told it was 85 degrees fahrenheit last week and it has been raining and 60-66 degrees this week.
You have to drive on the left side of the street and things are difficult for newcomers which is why they have taxis and tours.
Tomorrow we are going to Elgin to try and drink distilleries dry.
Whisky, drink divine!
Why should drivelers bore us
With the praise of wine
While we’ve thee before us?”
Your Scotch Spirit Master
