Whisky tasting Edinburgh 3.11.16 Jolly Toper

Postby Jolly Toper » Mon Oct 24, 2016 8:44 pm

3.11.16 Thursday 7:30pm £22 at The Kilderkin, Royal Mile, Edinburgh

Glenlivet 18yo bottled by hand at the distillery on 7th Oct. 2016 48.9%
A nicely typical example of a white oak matured Speyside at an advanced age.

Bruichladdich 5yo 40 bottles blood tub for The Artisan restaurant 55.3%
After the rum cask matured private cask last tasting this is an interesting alternative, young but from a tiny cask.

Auchentoshan 10yo Distillery Cask 15.02.2006 - 30.09.2016 Bordeaux cask 58.8%
Triple distilled spirit tends to take more from the oak - with Bordeaux wine donating this is pretty full on.

Glendronach 12yo 2004 Royal Mile Whiskies & Bramble Bar exclusive Pedro Ximenez puncheon 712 bottles 55.9%
From 12 casks proposed by this popular and respected distiller RMW and Bramble bar chose this fine example of PX.

Imperial 20yo 09.1995 - 08.2016 2 hogsheads Signatory 521 bottles 50.6%
To be honest I've yet to taste it but the form is good and tasting closed distilleries is slipping away from us.

I'll try and make all the raffle prizes peaty...

The tasting is now sold out but perhaps some cancellations if anyone is desperate for a place. I'll endeavour to write up the tasting and include feedback on the bottlings.
