Fodor's Review

Transforming malted barley and spring water into one of Scotland's most important exports is the subject of this popular museum. Although the process is not exactly packed with drama, the center manages an imaginative presentation that you take in while riding in low-speed barrel cars. Explore Scotland's diverse whisky regions and the flavors they impart. Sniff the various aromas and decide whether you like fruity, sweet, or smoky, and afterward experts will help you select your perfect dram. Your guide will then allow you access to a vault containing the Diageo Claive Vidiz Scotch Whisky Collection, the world's largest collection of Scotch whiskies. Premium tours (£25–£60) include such extras as a special crystal tasting glass to keep, or a full Scottish food tasting.
