About the Experience
Scotch whisky comes from Scotland. That’s about all we knew before immersing ourselves in this unique experience in Edinburgh. After a day of sightseeing on our own, we sat down with the knowledgeable and witty Scot himself, Greg, at the Waverley Pub in the heart of Edinburgh.
The two hour experience that followed involved tasting four types of Scotch whisky originating from 4 different regions of Scotland. We seriously studied the “how” and the “why” of whisky tasting itself and went into details about the smell, the taste, and the sensation in your mouth.
Even though our personal tastes didn’t always match the consensus, we never felt dumb or like we didn’t belong. That was thanks to Greg’s hospitality and his love for whisky and sharing it with others. Not only were we opened to a whole new experience from this whisky tasting, but we heard some fantastic Scottish folklore along the way. This whisky tasting is an intimate experience that you will not forget.
In fact, we feel compelled to share it with you because we had such an awesome experience and it’s one of our favorite memories of Edinburgh. Now when we have a drink of Scotch we remember the work that goes into it, the history that makes it so special, and the stories that make Scotland such a culturally rich country.
