After visiting Edinburgh Castle and some souvenir shopping, I went to The Whiskey Experience which is conveniently located on the Royal Mile, very close to the castle. The Whiskey Experience is a tourist attraction where you go on a Disney-like barrel ride while learning about the production of Scottish whiskey, then a tour guide tells you about the types of whiskies from the different regions of Scotland, and most importantly, you get to drink whiskey! You also get to take home a nosing glass as a free souvenir. The Whiskey Experience is home to the world’s largest whiskey collection – almost 3,500 bottles! The pictures of the whiskey bottles below are only a small part of the collection. I felt a little strange about drinking whiskey at what was technically late morning, but I wanted to go and I would have had to do a lot of backtracking to do it later. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do!
