Here is a list of all the drams that I tasted;
OMC Laphroaig 13yrs
OMC Port Ellen 25yrs
Bruichladdich "Torrey Pines" 15yrs (new Links series edition)
Bruichladdich Infinity 2
Springbank 17yrs (Society bottling)
Glenfarclas 1974, 1977 and 1980 (Family casks)
I also attended the Inverhouse Masterclass hosted by Stuart Harvey, their master blender. He talked us through a tasting of the following Old Pulteney drams;
New Make Spirit
30yrs (not yet released to the retail market - coming out in August limited to 3000 bottles)
1990 Single Cask
1990 Cask Strength
Everyone was very friendly and approachable, sharing lots of information about each brand. I especially enjoyed a chat with George S Grant, Brand Ambassador from Glenfarclas, he was tremendously personable and gave me lots of information about the Family casks
I would highly recommend this day to all whisky enthusiasts and will certainly be back again next year.
Regards to all those who attended
The venue from the balcony:
Missed you all on the train,but woke up in glasgow central with a half eaten sandwich in my pocket.
Can see from the photograph that Willie is a balanced drinker:- one in each hand.
Glenfarclas Family Cask 1974
Glenfarclas Family Cask 1977
Dalmore Alexander III 1263
Auld Reekie 10yo
Favourite was the Ardbeg followed by the Auchentoshan 18yo with the Tomintoul 27yo in 3rd
I also really enjoyed the day. There was a really good atmosphere to the event. Busy, but not to crowded.
I also tried the new Ledaig 10 and must admit to being slightly surprised. Still a touch feinty, but vastly improved on the NAS, from what I remember the Burns Stewart guy told me it would retail for £28 which doesn't seem to bad a price for a 10 year old these days.
