The only thing I really know about Scotch is that it comes from Scotland and on occasion when I do drink it, it makes my face turn redder then a tomato! Nevertheless when I was invited to Scotch Camp last week neither my ignorance nor my red face was going to keep me away.
So off I went last Wednesday to the Pomp and Circumstance office to settle in with the group before departing on a bus to Scotch Camp. With no real idea of what the afternoon would entail I wholeheartedly embraced the unknown, grabbed a single malt and made myself comfortable.
Once arriving at Scotch Camp we were greeted with welcoming libations and told that our hike would start shortly. Leading the hike was John Dewar & Sons North American Ambassador Gabe Cardarella and he was going to teach us the history behind 5 of Dewar's great malt's!
If you are interested in learning more about the Scotch Whisky's we tasted I have included some information about each Scotch below, including tasting notes and price points at the LCBO. I also made a short highlights video from my day at Scotch Camp so you can come along for the journey too.

I have to say that this was one of the best and most interactive tastings I have ever gone to. The event location and setup was so well executed. Although I went in there with very little knowledge about Scotch I definitely left with a new appreciation for Scotch that made getting all red in the face so worth it. If you are ever in Scotland and want to visit the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery you can book a tour and tasting -> HERE
