POURS tasting Edinburgh 10.4.14

Postby jmrl » Wed Apr 02, 2014 11:49 pm

The usual format Thursday, 7.30, Kilderkin - a French buddy asked me to host a tasting for him and his mates and he is happy to have all-comers join in. His remit was "5 good drams, all cask strength and no red wine finishes". So far I'm thinking about:-

Allt-a-Bhainne 21yo Bourbon hogshead cask strength Cadenheads

Ardmore 16yo Bourbon Hogshead cask strength Cadenheads

Glendronach Cask strength Batch 3

Bruichladdich 21yo Bourbon hogshead Cask Strength Cadenheads or Glen Grant 24yo Bourbon hogsheads cask strength Cadenheads

Although it is tempting to re-pour the Tomatin 35yo......

A Springbank at cask strength possibly an old bottling of the 10yo 100 proof or a Port cask Wood Expression bottled for Europe and not the UK

£20 for first timers or members otherwise £23 for returning non members.

P.S. still some tickets left for tomorrow night's tasting: the 10th Anniversary of the Springbnak Society, see earlier post.

Temptation has got the better of me - the Bruichladdich / Glen Grant dilemma is resolved - Tomatin 35yo.

If The Whisky Exchange gets it up in time then their G&M exclusive Ledaig cask strength which I hear good things about will complete the line up.
