Benriach vertical Thurs 8.2.18 7:30 Edinburgh

Next tasting:

Thursday February 8th Benriach Vertical 7:30pm The Kilderkin, Royal Mile, £25

Hopefully some triple distilled spirit, an unusual cask maturation but definately the current 10yo compared with one from the 1990s and their now discontinued peated 'Solstice' expression.It's not hosted by the company so the pitch of the talking will be about distillery and brand history rather than promotion.

Triple distilled spirit eluded me (there was a chance of a Horizons 12yo port cask finished at 50% but as we tried it 10 years ago and it didn't display any particular character ascribable to triple distillatios I thought we'd not repeat the pour). There will be the brand new 21yo and a Burgundy cask bottled quite some time ago. There will also be a bottle of Something Special from the 70s, a blend Benriach would have gone into and some new make.
