Dear Sheryl, thanks so much for this amazing review. I'm very glad you enjoyed our luxury tour in Edinburgh a few days ago. Thanks for your positive feedback, you can be sure I enjoyed the tour as much as you did. It was indeed fantastic to have the opportunity to taste such rare and unique whiskies. It was my pleasure having you and your daughter in our walking tour through Edinburgh's old and new towns. Have a fantastic day and please let me know if there's anything I can help in the future.

I don't drink but it was fun and educational anyway. Camilo, our guide, was informative and kind. The bars we went too were also fun to see. A great way to learn about whisky.
