Jim was in excellent form last night. He indicated that he will no longer be touring around as the ambassador for Bruichladdich. Instead, he will be concentrating on re-opening the Port Charlotte distillery.
We started the evening with "Rocks", an 8-yo that is perfect as an apertif.
Next, we had the 10 yo, soon to be gone for several years. It was as good as I remembered.
The third sampling was the WMD-II "The Yellow Submarine". Definitely a thumbs up for this whisky.
We followed this up with the 14-yo Links "Turnberry". Jim mentioned that this was a marraige of three different types of casks including a port cask.
The 15-yo, 2nd edition was next. Excellent! It fits well for any time. Jim mentioned it as one of his favorites.
The 20-yo, 2nd edition followed and was the hallmark of the event. Definitely a well balanced dram.
To close the tasting we had the 3D Peat, 2nd edition "Moine Mhor". Peaty, peaty, peaty.
An enjoyable time was had by all. And now to await the signed bottles to be delivered.
