Jolly Toper tasting Edinburgh 23/2/12

Pretty pleased with this lot, £21/18* phone 0131 556 5864 for tickets, Mon. to Sat. 10.30 to 5.30, the tasting will be at The Tolbooth Tavern, Canongate, Royal Mile:-

Lagavulin Jazz festival bottling, cask strength, single cask 'magnificent' according to Dave Broom

Springbank Rundlets & Kilderkins - the Campbeltown masterpiece after 10 years in unusually small (68 litre) casks 49.4%

Glenfarclas 175th anniversary 43% - a particularly fine example of arguably 'Speyside's finest' - casks spanning 5 decades were married for this commemorative bottling

House of Stuart 12yo 43% blend from the 1970/80s - some of these old blends are a revelation- it's great to see peoples' expressions when they find out how they're not drinking an aged and expensive malt

Glen Deveron 15yo 40% a somewhat surprisingly good example from the distillers of a low profile coastal North-East malt

finally a mystery dram kindly donated by one of the regulars
