As you sail the North Sea, charting dramatic Scottish coastlines dotted with medieval fortresses, towering cliffsides and rugged headlands, discover the perfect accompaniment to your unforgettable views at one of our memorable Single Malt Scotch Tastings.
Scotland’s most famous whisky export, single malt scotch is whisky that’s produced in batches from water, malted barley and yeast at a single distillery using copper pot stills. Celebrated for centuries as the “water of life,” whisky involves an ancient process that’s been refined over centuries – not quite alchemy, but almost, as our bartenders and sommeliers can attest. Nearly every stage of the production process influences the taste and aroma of the final product, from the stills at the distillery to the peat and fermentation.
Wherever you may be on your whisky journey, a little insight on flavor and technique can go a long way. Our Single Malt Tastings on board bring you the chance to savor and experience some of the world’s most renowned single malts such as:
- Dalwhinnie Classic, a 15-year-old malt from the windswept Highlands of Scotland with a heathery honey finish
- A 12-year-old Cragganmore, an elegant Speyside malt with complex aromas and a smoky maltiness
- A 14-year-old Oban from Oban Distillery, which overlooks the Firth of Lorn in an ideal location for a single malt with the perfect balance between Highland and Islay
