A Wonderful Present
This Christmas gone I got a most wonderful present from my wife; a tour of the Auchentoshan distillery and tasting. I didn’t blog at the time as my Christmas post was post-dated but also felt it would be nice to blog about it nearer the time. I’m due to leave for Edinburgh later today and travel across to Glasgow with my brother for the tour tomorrow.
It has been a desire of mine for some time to visit a distillery in Scotland and Auchentoshan was one of them for it’s convenient location but also one of only a handful of Lowland distilleries. There are others I’d like to visit such as Laphroig, Glenfiddich and Tomintoul to name a few but that’ll be for a whisky tour I plan to do this or next year money depending. I can tell you though that it was a wonderful surprise Christmas morn to receive that as a present!
The only downside is that this Wednesday gone I had two teeth out at the dentist. I’m still suffering some pain and the dentist advised against drinking as early as Saturday. I’m going to ignore that advice for two reason the first being is that the only problem it’ll cause me is that it might promote some bleeding but more importantly I don’t want to miss out. I’ve been looking forward to this since I opened the card that the gift was in and I won’t let it get in the way and besides, alcohol sterilises things anyway so no harm no foul eh!
