MacAllan taste-off, Edinburgh 24.9.9

Postby jmrl » Sun Aug 23, 2009 8:13 pm

The next in the series of tastings comparing officially bottled standard issue cask strength expressions of a malt with 4 independently bottled examples and a red herring (this is a figure of speach rather than a food pairing).

Macallan official bottle 10yo 58.5% (litre bottle)

Golden Cask 1992 - 2005 291 bottles 56.8% - no cask type stated but surely a Bourbon hogshead

Scott's Selection 1985 - 2005 53% - same thoughts on cask as with the Golden Cask botttling

Scotch Malt Whisky Society 24.104 18yo 56.9% first fill sherry butt 612 bottles

Cadenheads 1987 - 10/08 20yo sherry butt 282 bottles 53.2%

Red herring

Tollbooth Tavern, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, 24th September 2009 7.30pm
