POURS tasting Thurs. 12th June Edinburgh

Postby jmrl » Sun Jun 01, 2014 9:56 pm

A few ideas for the next POURS tasting on Thursday June 12th: after a great deal of success with Larceny, Weller and Fitzgerald Prime I thought we'd try Fitzgerald 12yo. The previous were all wonderfully soft wheated Bourbons however this last seems to be more straight down the line bourbon - I'll see if I can find any quote on the mash bill.

Also we just took delivery of this year's release on Longrow 18yo which has been matured in ex-sherry casks like the brand new Work In Progress Kilkerran batch 6. All these drams are at 46% so the last two will be full strength, maybe a closed distillery but certainly something old.

However if the new Cadenheads Small Batch arrives in time and includes some crackers the above choices may be revised, details to follow...

No Small Batch until hopefully the following week so that should make the line up for the tasting on 26th June so-

Next Thursday's tasting has been tweeked- still doing the Kilkerran Work in Progress 6 46% sherry cask but changing the Old Fitzgerald 12yo to Tincup high rye Bourbon from Colorado. So far sticking to a mystery cask strength peaty single Islay malt although hopefully will finally get the G&M Whisky Exchange exclusive sherry cask Leadaig - if they have any left. Not sure if we'll use the Longrow 18yo 46% 2014 release - gettiing a bit top heavy with peat and sherry - there is a nice Duthies Glen Spey 17yo 46%. Finally need something old too.

So The Whisky Exchange Gordon & MacPhail exclusive Ledaig 16yo 1997 - 10/2013 re-fill sherry cask 465 56.8% is in transit and we'll try a Dalmore 24yo 1989 - 2013 Bourbon barrels 312 bottles 46.6%. Just need to finalise a nice gentle dram to start the ball rolling.
