After a great hiking through the Karwendel mountains I enjoyed my todays whisky at the “Zuber” bath. My gaze wanders back to Innsbruck where my little adventure began at 7 a.m. this morning. I took the bus to the “Hungerbahn” station that lifts me up the first 300 meters. The cable cabin brought me to “Hafelekar” at 2.258 meters. Here I red that funny print of famous Hans Kammerlander, letting me think of my whisky passion just for a moment. It took me 1:40 h to get to the Pfeishütte. My step-sister runs that wonderful mountain hut where you can´t get a whisky – what a pitty. But it´s safety first in that high mountain area. On the more strenuous way back I ran fast what was really tiring. But it was a great hike. While I was driving home I had the glorious idea to drink my well-earned whisky in the warm Zuber to relax my muscles.
Balvenie Double Wood scotch whisky matures in Sherry and Bourbon casks. That makes that whisky interesting and tender. It´s a tip among connoisseurs because of it´s orange aroma and that deep sweet taste.
William Grant converted the Balvenie mansion into a distillery. It lies on the slopes of Conval hills near Dufftown. On 1 May 1893 the first whisky has been created at the Balvenie Distillery. William Grant continued his acitivities of distilling whisky to the ripe old age of 83.
