    Thanks Neil. Thought the guys might be interested, and the folk there were very kind and deserve a mention.

    We first visited Glengoyne back in the early nineties and would love to do so again but last time we were in Scotland we called in to Glen Turret. We have also visited Tamnavulin as well. Love going around these distilleries but would love to go around Ardbeg the most or possibly Lagavulin.

    well its not changed much in its lifetime physically, or product quality. It was, for me a Trip of a lifetime in my condition , and to be treated well like that. Usually you get bumped off faster than you can hobble .
