Best whisky tastings I had over years. Hector was great, has an excellent knowledge of whisky. The shop has the best humidor in town and a good selection of cubans.

Daniel was our “tour guide” during our visit, which far exceeded the expectations I had for a scotch tasting. We showed up 30 minutes before closing, expecting a few short tastes and an explanation of each bottle. Instead, we got a one hour, sit down...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
