Jolly Toper Whisky tasting 15.6.17 7:30pm £20 Edinburgh

At the Kilderkin, 65 Canongate, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, £20 :-

Ledaig Signatory 2005 cask strength sherry cask

Mystery dram

Another then-and-now taste-off: a single malt bottled at the same age and strength but 20 years apart

Something else - retail price around £100 hopefully, rare, unusual and old

Well, the super rare drams continue - I've just been offered a bottle of Garnheath 26yo single grain from the long closed Moffat complex. Too good an opportunity to turn down but ticket price will go up to £23 as it broke the budget somewhat. I believe only 14 casks of this whisky have ever been bottled.

So since the Garnheath came on the scene the menu was a bit lopsided towards light. I've decided to take out one of the 3 mystery drams in exchange for the freshly released new sherry cask NAS Bunnahabhain. Many thanks to the right. Honourable Sir Neil of Hamilton for muleing this back from Islay (even if we do actually stock it in the shop, it was a lovely thought).

In a further chapter of this saga another bottle has popped up. I got the Ledaig for a small private tasting but with 20 people coming to this tasting I need more liquid than is left in the Ledaig, although there are more in the shop but as my colleague Neil took a limited cask strength port cask Finlaggan back from Islay I thought there could a choice of final dram....
