Scotland’s Hidden Whisky Castle • Dornoch Castle Hotel Welcomes all Whisky Enthusiasts!

Any whisky enthusiast knows the value of a great whisky bar, especially considering the amount of disappointing options around nowadays it’s a real breath of fresh air when you find one with a truly impressive selection and fair prices to boot. Here at Whisky Online we’ve always been fans of Dornoch Castle Hotel. I often stay there on my trips up north when collecting and valuing for the auction and it’s always a pleasure to stay and enjoy a couple of drams. Just a quick perusal of their cabinets and shelves will reveal a wealth of whisky the likes of which just isn’t available anywhere else in the UK. Recent highlights have been a director’s bottling of Ardmore from the 1920s, a Signatory 1966 Laphroaig, a 1949 cask sample of Balblair and the Killyloch 1967.

It’s not only high-end stuff on offer though, it’s a great place to find old official malts, obscure blends and generally ancient drams at very fair prices that make for fascinating and delicious drinking. Recently voted SLTN Whisky Bar of the year 2014, the bar is owned and run by Phil and Simon Thompson and located in the heart of the Coastal Highland whisky trail. So it’s an ideal location to hide away for a few days and dram, or to get out and do some adventuring amongst highland scenery or local distilleries. Phil and Simon have a quite an online presence in the whisky community but it still remains something of a hidden gem so if you are thinking of going to Scotland, you could do a lot worse than spend a couple of nights there. Also the food is utterly delicious.
