Our off-river excursion continues in this episode, to visit another distillery. This time one of the smaller – and newest – Speyside distilleries – Ballindalloch. At the time of our visit, the produce of this small but perfectly formed venture will not be ready for bottling for at least another 6 years.
We didn’t have this much time to wait, even though they have some lovely sitting rooms (but are looking forward to returning in future years). Luckily the family have some splendid casks of Cragganmore (there’s an old family connection), which we were able to sample. The first was 27 years old and the tasting went from there…
We’d been tasting whisky all day (see here for earlier the same day) and it was lovely and warm inside. It was going to require discipline to get back out into the cold, damp woods and set up camp. But we were all well set to sleep very well indeed 🙂
Thanks to Brian at Ballindalloch and Alan for babysitting our canoes.
