Gotta love those unique (and difficult to pronounce) Scottish names! Thanks, Laird. Now we know what gifts to send your way! 😉
I’ve lived in Scotland for over a decade now and I still can’t pronounce Bunnahabhain. Not that it’s ever mattered. Just approaching the bar staff smiling and saying “Could I have a buhurnuhurnahurna-whatever-you-call-it” seems to work fine every time I’ve tried. 😀
We call it bunny-hoppin’ at my house.
I’ll try that one next time I’m down the pub 😀
Tried the Caol Ila yet?
No–it’s on my to-do list. Toward the top…
I’m so glad that you can get decent malts in the US. My partner is considering doing her PhD at Brown(funding and visas permitting) and my only real concern about moving was “B-b-b-but what about Laphroig and Lagavulin???”
