The "her" in       Her Whisky Love

I'm still here!  As some of you may have realized I have been working with Bacardi and helping their 5 single malts gain a foothold in the USA over the past year. This has not allowed me to write as much as I would like but I am still visiting new distilleries all the time. Slowly but surely I will get them up here. I will always have and be her whisky love so please stay tuned! Still writing & posting when I can..

Thanks for bearing with me and in the meantime you can still find me on Instagram @herwhiskylove

Ardbeg. The tour guide spoke very, very slowly during my visit to Ardbeg. So slow, that it was almost difficult for me to follow her because she wasn’t giving enough new information in a timely manner. Either way, she was clear to enunciate that over the past 200 years...

Caol Ila. I never ordered this dram at a bar because I couldn’t pronounce it. I was missing out! Now it is one of my favorite drams. Although, I must say that if you like Caol Ila, the distillery might be a little bit of a letdown. It is definitely one of Diageo’s work...

Bunnahabhain. This distillery is beautiful! It is on a one way dirt road down the hill towards the water. On really clear days you can walk out on their pier and see The Isle of Mull/Tobermory distillery just a ways north! They are the most remote distillery on the isl...

Bruichladdich. I was very excited to visit Bruichladdich because I had met an awesome sales rep from their parent company back in California when I was just starting to plan my journey. He believed so wholeheartedly about the brand he was working for and selling and I...

These stories are all personal opinion and my way of tracking and sharing my whisky travels with friends and family. I of course want accurate facts. I have had lovely and knowledgeable tour guides and if I have facts that are incorrect, it is most likely due to my lack of documentation. If this is the case, please feel free to write to me directly on the "Contact Me" page. I would love to hear from you and meet a fellow whisky lover. Thanks for taking part in my whisky education!
