A few months ago I dropped in on the excellent Whiskyshop in Dufftown – a veritable treasure trove of original, and independent bottlings. There’s lots to like about this small, but stocked to the rafters store – from the welcoming and friendly staff to the large selection of open bottles which provide visitors with a wealth of opportunities to ‘try before you buy’. I’m all for taking a punt on a bottling once in a while, but given the chance, I'd always recommend pre-sampling if its available – particularly when it comes to the idiosyncrasies of single cask whiskies. Sampling conducted, I walked away with a well-aged bottling of Glentauchers – perhaps I should have bought two?
