Scotland The Final

I'll skip over days nine and ten as they were spent relaxing around the hotel, see a few sites, getting messages and sleeping in.

The whisky trip as a whole was a success in the achieved goal of visiting numerous Scottish distillates, having a relaxing vacation, and seeing the lush country side. We did bring a few bottle back home but mostly the trip was all about sampling on the visit.
