As there is only one public tasting this February, I thought I'd bring in a couple of extra special bottles...can you guess which ones?
Aberfeldy 22, Cadenhead's 2018 Campbeltown Festival bottling. I've been looking forward to featuring Aberfeldy for a while, and so I thought I would start with this one, bought on a bright sunny Sunday surrounded by a throng of whisky fans...ah, those were the days!!
Glencadam 26, Cadenhead's. This will be a bit of a mystery bottling for some of you, but be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.
Imperial 1989, Càrn Mòr. We all need more Imperial. This closed and demolished distillery is becoming scarce, so I definitely need to feature in this tasting.
Glenburgie 27, Cadenheads. Glenburgie flies under a lot of peoples radar, but it shouldn't, especially when it is in its later twenties.
Tormore 25, SMWS 105.24. "Such stuff as drams are made on", a good name choice there, this is a cracking Tormore.
Clynelish 20, "The Candlelight Series" by The Whisky Illuminati. Without doubt one of the best 1997 vintages of this east coast delight.
Mortlach 21, Douglas Laing Directors' Cut. Please don't make me regret sharing this stunner from the Beast of Dufftown, usually you have to prise these from my dead fingers!
Bruichladdich 23 "Black Art 1990, 04.1". A little bit of mystery in exactly which cask types are used.
Springbank 25, 2019. Yes, you read that right.
So that's 9 Drams in all this month.
The whisky tasting runs from 7.30-10pm on Friday 19th February, on Zoom.
It costs either £85 all inclusive for Royal Mail 1st Class signed for delivery, or £90 if you would like next day special delivery. I will mail the box of drams at least a week before.
To join please pay PayPal.me/ecwhisky including "W4A8" and your current mailing address in the notes.
If you are new to these tastings, please also email email@example.com, so I have your email address to send you a Zoom link and tasting notes before the event.
There is also now an East Coast Whisky Chat group on WhatsApp, which is a great way to keep up with the latest news and whisky chat. Send the group a request on WhatsApp, or email your number, if you would like to join.
I look forward to seeing you on the 19th, for another great evening of whisky and chat.
