I thought I'd share this post put on another site by my pal and co-host for this tasting Iain McLune, manager at Royal Mile Whiskies.:-

Continuing on from our adventure last year, it might be an idea to have another Japanese Whisky Tasting (Hurrah!).

This year we will have ;

The Nikka Anniversary Pack;
Miyagikyo 12yo 58%
Yoichi 12yo 58%
Coffey grain 12yo 58%
then a blend of the above three
Yoichi 1991 20yo 53% Heavily Peated La Maison Du Whisky

The tasting will start at 7.30pm at Kilderkin, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh

The price will be slightly higher at £25 this year.

As per usual it is 'vital' to pay for your ticket before the night, so please contact me on iainmcclune@hotmail.com or confirm your seat by popping into Royal Mile Whiskies or Cadenheads.

only a ten seats remaining, so let me know if your interested as soon as possible, thanks!

I look forward to seeing you all there.

Regards
