Desert Island Drams – The Scotch Trooper

The Scotch Trooper is a Star Wars geek who loves Scotch, Photography and building lamps from his empty bottles of Scotch

He also has perhaps the greatest Twitter profile picture of all time.


If I happened to be stranded on a desert island, which really doesn’t quite seem like a bad thing, I would honestly be happy with any bottle of scotch that survived the trip.

If you had asked me a few weeks ago I probably would have chosen one of my favorite Islay Whiskies such as Lagavulin, Laphroaig or Ardbeg, which are my “Beach Scotches”.

However after recently spending some time with David Laird from Balvenie and being able to share a dram of The Balvenie 30 year old I would choose this for my Desert Island Dram.

Not only is this whisky deep and sweet, but the nose on it is one that you never want to end. I can easily enjoy hours, days, weeks on an island nosing away at this beauty.
