Day 2 of our whisky tour, we first went to Balvenie distillery. Another artisan distillery which they produce whisky from the very beginning, i.e. from growing barley to bottle. It was a wonderful experience as I can witness the whole process from malt to whisky, and even I can SMELL them. I am writing something about it and will post some pictures in later post in somewhere else (you know where I will post for sure).

Balvenie and Glenfiddich are under the same group, William Son & Co. Their distilleries situated just next to each other and our tasting was indeed carried out in the Glenfiddich tasting room. Hence, we had an extra visit to Glenfiddich distillery.

Glenfraclas was the last distillery that we were visiting. We were almost running out of time so we just went straight to the cellar to do the cellar tasting. In total, I tasted about 15 different casks of whisky. So not many pictures taken but the vintage whisky display in their customer center was impressive.......

And I found this.....  Grin

We back to Edinburgh that night and had dinner at Scotch Malt Whisky Society. What a whisky day.

As we will head back to HK next day, we pull all our whisky together and took photos......

Our flight will leave Edinburgh in the evening so we still had some time to do a bit more sightseeing. We went to the National Museum of Scotland and the Grass Market.

In total, I took about 700 photos. Some of them were so poor that I won't show you and all photos with faces will not be posted here too. Part of my photos were solely academic and whisky related, which will be shown in separate occasion.

Overall, this trip was full of fun and eye widening. Would my friends please post your pictures here if you want to........
