POURS whisky tasting Edinburgh 12.10.16

Postby Jolly Toper » Thu Sep 29, 2016 2:44 pm

The next tasting will take place, unusually, on a Wednesday - the 12th October. So far there is a great cask strength Glen Keith 23yo cask strength from Signatory (a firm staff favourite and sold very well after taste testing in the shop) and a Laphroaig Cairdeas Madiera finish- not totally my cup of wine soaked peat but it's nice to try these more unusual variations of a tried and tested formula. The other 3 drams will be announced once I've scratched the heid a bit more. Perhaps one will remain a mystery.

I've just been given an E. H. Taylor wheated Bourbon in seasoned oak - I'm sure the benefactor wouldn't mind me sharing the contents.....
