My friend and i recently had a blind tasting with six different distilleries in different bottler's product, the process is funny , we had very different opinions , they are:
Highland Park 1977-95 18y 56% Cadenhead
Bowmore 10y 1977-87 59,4% G&M for 10th Anniversary Glenscoma, Barrel 4314
Caol Ila 21y 1974-96 58% Cadenhead
Longmorn sherry 32y 1969-2001 56% Cooper's Choice
Laphroaig 17y 1979-97 53,5% Glenscoma
Talisker sherry finish 31y 1970-2002 50% Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask Director's Tactical Selection, 222 bottles
Some i love, but my friend hates. And Some i hate, my friend loves.
i like Bowmore 10y and Laphroaig 17y, and i hate Caol Ila 21y and Longmorn sherry 32y.
I'm confused of almost all bottle's regions and distilleries.
i guessed Highland Park 18y as a Mortlach's, Bowmore 10y as a speysider, Caol Ila 21y as a Laphroaig's ,Laphroaig 17y as a Bowmore's, Talisker sherry finish 31y as a islayer.
We got a conclusion that we need to have more blind tasting in the future.
