Our staff have to learn an incredible amount when it comes to working at The Torridon and with a collection of over 350 malts on offer in our Whisky Bar, finding out about them all is a daunting task.
I try and break them in gently but decided this week it was time to open some whiskies and let the team learn together. They chose two malts each and learned the characteristics, where they are from and some interesting facts about the distilleries chosen.
A gold star goes to Amy who learned everything about her chosen whiskies and is now known as the whisky geek.
In total, 16 whiskies were tried and noted.
I am glad to say that my beloved Ardbeg is still one of the champions with all the team agreeing how fantastic it is. I am confident now that should any of the team be asked to recommend a great whisky they can come up with a varied selection.
