My girlfriend and I decided to go to the Scotch Whiskey Experience in July 2014. Being an Irish man I'm quite fond of whiskey especially the Irish Jameson so I knew I'd enjoy this, my girlfriend however absolutely hates whiskey so she didn't know what to expect. We chose the silver tour.
The tour starts with a short barrel ride to explain how whiskey is made, this was fun and we both enjoyed it. Then we were brought into another room where we learned about the different types of whiskey in Scotland and the different flavours in the whiskey. We then got a choice to sample a type of whiskey of our choice. Then we got a tour of the largest whiskey collection in the world. Afterwards we both took some time to relax and make use of the bar. By the end of the tour my girlfriend was actually enjoying the whiskey and she claims this experience was the best part about our trip in Edinburgh. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and recommended a few different types of whiskey for us to try. Overall I would highly recommend this trip if you are in Edinburgh.
