MM Distillery profile:
The Glen Albyn distillery was located west of Inverness, making it a Northen Highlander by most accounts. However, whisky writer Michael Jackson felt that Glen Albyn was in fact a Speyside distillery. That's a bit strange, because he classifies Glen Ord (located just a drunken crawl to the north) as a Northern Higlander. More on Malt Madness.
