A wee Happy Thanksgiving

Halò Single Malt Mates,

Since Scots do not celebrate ‘Thanksgiving’ I have had to dig for a Gaelic phrase for Happy Thanksgiving.

So Hopefully this is how to correctly say it in Scots Gaelic:

Gabh Là na Taingealachd
Happy Thanksgiving.

So Gabh Là na Taingealachd to all my readers wherever you may be. I had mo Clann over and we had a festive meal and a guid time was had by all!

When Mo Clann and I were in Scotland we visited the Glengoyne Distillery, northeast of Glasgow. It was a brill visit and all had a guid time. The whisky is verry guid. It is distilled and put into barrels in the highlands and matured in the lowlands. How aboot that?

Here is an interesting whisky for you to look at!

15 Year Old 40% 70cl

Producer Ian Macleod
Age 15 Year Old
Bottle Size 70cl
Alc. Volume 40%
Bottler Official
Region Highland

Slow distilled, which increases the spirits contact with copper, creating a relatively fruity spirit, which is then aged in ex Sherry casks, which gives it a richness and meatiness.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Toffee popcorn and an initial hit of sweet lemon.
Palate: Oily notes, walnuts, cinnamon and a citrus burst.

Thoughts on whiskey: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”
Mark Twain

Here’s tae the heath, the hill and the heather,
The bonnet, the plaid, the kilt and the feather.

A h-uile la sona dhuibh‘s gun la idir dona dhuibh!
May all your days be happy ones.
