Had an entertaining master class with the folks from Benriach, and though Speyside is not entirely my cup of tea, the session was informative and well run. We tasted 6 Benriach of varying finishes, 5 of which were in the classic Speyside mould and the last was a 35ppm peated dram due for release in the next couple of weeks. Delicious, with a solid peat backbone and a pronounced yet delicate medicinal note on top of the Spey orchard fruits and spice.
The rest of the show was well run, and not a single ticket taken for anything I sampled. SA doesn't have the range available in the UK, but the core range available here is decent.
All in all a great evening of dramming on the tip of Africa.
