    One of the best, if not THE best, whisky bar I have visited. Great collection of (very) special whiskies, fair prices. A must visit for every whisky enthusiast.

  5. The Macallan scored this hotel 99 points Connoisseur

    Been here twice now and the last time was during a big venue wich involved Springbank and Cadenhead 175th anniversary tasting.

    The staff is very polite and helpful as well as the Thompson broters behind the bar and the Dornoch distillery, they produce some nice stuff.

    A heaven for whisky lovers!!

    Unbelievable whisky bar with many old bottlings. A treat for even the most spoiled whisky drinker. The hotel is also good, spent a very nice evening and night there.
