Charles Tower “Old Man Whisky”
Charlie obtained his first bottle of single malt Scotch whisky almost 50 years ago, at a time when most Americans had never heard of single malt Scotch. Shortly after this he had the good fortune to be stationed in Scotland with the U.S. Navy. Taking full advantage, Charlie was able to visit a number of distilleries, none of which had visitor centers, and most of which did not normally allow visitors. He was amply rewarded for his curiosity and interest in all aspects of the Scotch whisky industry.
In the ensuing years he has been back to Scotland many times, and he numbers many distillery managers, distillers, malt masters, and master blenders as friends. Charlie has spent time in over 60 distilleries, with some glorious experiences sampling the treasures held in whisky warehouses, and has participated in the selection of a number of single cask bottlings.
Charlie has retired twice, from the Navy and from a civilian government job. He is now “living the dream”, sharing his love of Scotland’s “water of life” at tastings, seminars, and whisky dinners. (He also is able to talk your ear off about whiskies from other countries!). He happily includes Scotch whiskies from The Lost Distillery Company in his portfolio.
