The ALBANACH Whisky Festival


Lucas and I love the Albanach pub. The staff are great, the location is great (197 High Street Edinburgh EH1 1PE) and the whisky list is pretty impressive. They are having a whisky sale and I have a funny feeling I will be down there once or twice (at least) in the next month.
