Word of advice for Glendronach. Book the local taxi firm in the Aberchirder - they are lots cheaper than the dufftown lot. Also if you're up for it - they'll do a tasting at the distillery for Glendronach and Benriach (7 drams) which I found really good and interesting. £30 but worth it. Good session too..!

Three distilleries per day, are you touring visitors centres or actual production/warehouses?

Hope that we will get better report than from WM. Very Happy

All travel is taken care off, I drive to first distillery, wife takes over.. I drink her samples then mine 😊... As for the glendronach sounds like a great session.. I am not sure as to what tours I will do on most visits, obviously Balvenie is already booked.. Just sorting out with Aberfeldy as I want to write a review for the blog, Tomatin, Glen Moray and Glendronach are a must tour and review destination, as for Glenfiddich, Glenfarclas and Aberlour then I have done these tours last year so it might just be a supply visit. I am sure I will tour at least one every day poss two, but it depends on what I can arrange, I don't want to be rushed this time, and I will be trying to review some whisky on site.. As for details of course there will be a write up.. I will update day by day on here and the blog ..

You could probably do Glengoyne after Auchentoshan? Not too far.

I have done glengoyne about 5 times, do might miss it this time, probably have to go straight up to Aberfeldy as not sure on time for travel and don't want to be late .. 🙈..
Just looking at possible visits to either benriach or benromach as well as glendronach..

Ok it's sorted..
Monday.. Warehouse tour Aberfeldy plus tasting
Tuesday ... Am Tomintoul tour plus tasting... Pm Balvenie
Wednesday ... Am Tomatin cask experience tour
Thursday... Am Glen moray private tour.. Pm Benriach
Friday ... Probably stop off at Blair Athol if not time on Monday..
Left Friday afternoon open for the wife.. 😳 I know it's probably too much but it's only fair..
Glenfiddich, aberlour, Glenfarclas and hopefully Glendronach will get a flying visit..

Nice line-up Sorren. I think I would particularly like Aberfeldy, Tomintoul, Glen Moray and Tomatin especially if some of their premium drams are available to sample.
