Nearing the end of our trip, and wanted to try something different. We were in Birmingham, and the hidden away Neo-Tudor building seemed to be calling us from the ultra modernistic mall (where I stupidly passed up buying Kilchoman 100% Islay 2nd release)..
The bar itself was really nice, and looked old, especially for us New Worlders. The whisky selection was a little random, at best, so it was time to try a new entry level malt. The waitress didn’t know much about pricing, so all drams were 2 pound 50 p, which sounded pretty cool. More on that later.
Glengoyne distillery is unique in that it matures Highland malts that have been matured in the Lowlands. The stills are on the side of the Highland Line that counts as Highlands, and the maturing casks are on the other side of the line (road) which is the Lowlands.
