Specifically, I made arrangements in advance for my visit to Robbie's and when there enjoyed what was in effect a private tasting, this with another small group of U.S. travelers.

If you want a comprehensive trip through the best of what Scotch whisky has to offer, Robbies is the place. Robin is extremely knowledgeable, personable and welcoming. Don't pass an opportunity to visit when in Ayr.

In a town like Ayr, which is gradually being taken over by pound and charity shops, this beacon of true class shines out with the pure quality of venues in the prime cities of the world. In fact, I have never been in a whisky...More
