Cadenheads at the 2011 Speyside Festival

Postby jmrl » Sun Jan 16, 2011 10:40 pm

The program and ticket sales have just gone live for this year's Spirit of Speyside whisky festival. Not so many difficult to access distilleries are open but the events list is still very impressive.

Cadenheads will have a tasting on Saturday 30th April in the St. James hall, Dufftown 3.30 to 5.00 tickets £17. The apparent 'leg end' Mark Davidson will host.

The 5 drams will probably include a 16yo Laphroaig Bourbon hogshead at 55.2% and maybe a distillery bottling of a single cask Hazelburn from a port cask at 54% unique to UK Cadenheads shops. The other three will perhaps come from the soon to be released bottling program which may well contain some casls of note. They should include something at least 25yo and a closed distillery as well as something 'unusual'. Details will be confirmed soonly.

I got seats on the 7 stills tour that day, but I will see you at the whisky quiz :-)

Why not join our team for that Willie :-), we might even find a sleeping spot in our cottage for you!

We will probably come in the Cadenhead shop the wednesday before to say hello to you Mark as well :-)

Indeed the quiz should be a bit of a laugh- a long walk back from Strathisla to Dufftoon though. See you on the Wednesday S.

Isn't it already a team of about 15? :D

Anyway I'll also need a bed for Malcolm so I'll need an alternative plan.

There's 4-6 of us that wants to go to whiskyquiz, so we either need to find a few more to fill up to 2 teams or shrink it down to 2 teams, or maybe 2 3man teams
