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