This is not your father’s whisky tasting. There will be no corduroy, cardigans or chin-stroking. Just good whisky. And lots of it. Join whisky connoisseurs Sandy Kenneway and Steven McConnachie for a guided tour of Scotland’s national drink, sampling malts from across the country and learning about what makes good whisky. For just £20 per person, you can sample several whiskies in some of the most beautiful surroundings on Royal Deeside on 5 May, 2 June, 7 July and 4 August. Or, for those keen to visit all sessions, get four for the price of three with a block booking. With decades of experience in the whisky industry between them, Sandy – who has led tastings at festivals across Scotland – and Steven – a whisky expert from renowned bottler Murray McDavid – will debunk the myths surrounding the whisky making process and highlight the subtle differences between different regions and expressions.
The Tor Na Coille Whisky Club will run from 7pm on 5 May, 2 June, 7 July and 4 August at £20 per person. Block book all four sessions and pay just £60. Visit www.tornacoille.com for more information about the hotel, and email email@example.com or call 01330 822242 to book.
