    A brilliant tasting experience! I booked this for my Dad’s birthday and he went along with my brother-in-law. They had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! They sampled 3 different aged whiskies paired with generous portions of cheese, and had two cocktails accompanied by tapas from a choice of four. They said they had a wonderful time and enjoyed hearing the history and context to the whisky they tried. The bar and staff were excellent and I’d highly recommend the Tasting Experience!

    Fun little experience. Quite pricey, and probably only a one time experience, as wouldn’t go out of my way to go back. However, as a one time thing I would definitely recommend.
