Far eastern whisky

Tom Morton gets up close and cheesy with a few drams at Glengarioch
Part of a mission to educate myself about malt whisky which eventually gave birth to the book Spirit of Adventure

A QUARTER of a century ago I sputtered and backfired my way into Oldmeldrum (all one word) aboard an ancient MZ (Moteraddwerk Zschopau) two-stroke motorbike and sidecar, as part of a mission to educate myself about malt whisky which eventually gave birth to the book Spirit of Adventure. And a sputtering, backfiring, very much parttime career talking, writing about and drinking whisky.

Which continues to this day. Now, though, instead of a dodgy East German, Soviet-era motorcycle combination, I am comfortably whisked from Aberdeen to the Glengarioch (pronounced GlenGEERY; and also all one word, or least since rebranding in 2009) Distillery in a brand new Mini, made by BMW, from Bavaria in united, sleekly capitalist Germany. That’s in Europe, by the way. You may remember Europe.
