There is a whisky region that almost disappeared. Around a century ago Campbeltown was the most prolific of all of Scotland’s whisky regions. There were more than 20 distilleries in the small geographic whisky region. This dwindled down to just 3. One of the reasons for the decline was the fact that most distilleries in the Campbeltown region had a strong focus on quantity instead of quality.
Ever since the birth of our daughter, Milenka, I look forward to Fathers Day. I know that her Au Pair and her will produce a special piece of artwork that i will treasure for a long time. Today was no different, but in addition my wife Jeannette bought me a bottle of Springbank 18 yo to celebrate Fathers Day. This is the second edition, with a mauve label, and it was declared by the 2010 World Whiskies Awards to be Best Campbeltown Malt. We did not have a Campbeltown whisky in our collection and I had been contemplating getting one.
