Breaking Out the Good Stuff
January 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
“After 10-days, it’s time for a Break” So, we’re breaking out the good
stuff: 6 single malts and lots of comfort food.
Glen Moray Sherry Cask Finish (Speyside) is the key malt in two of the top ten best-selling Blended Scotches: Label 5 and Sir Edwards. With its capacity of 6-Mlpa (and plans to increase it to 9-Mlpa), its owner is now making a big effort in the US Single Malt Scotch market. That translates into attractive (low) pricing for us.
Glen Ord 15 (Highland) is awesome stuff. It’s available at three places:
Japan, Taiwan and Glen Ord’s shop (the origin of our bottle).
Glen Fohdry 12 (Speyside) is actually Kininvie Distillery 12, something you seldom see in our market.
GlenDronach 18 ‘Allardice’ is da bomb! If you’ve not tried it, you’re in for a real treat!
I bought our bottle of Aultmore 2011 vintage at the quarterly SMWSA tasting in Roswell. It’s a cask strength single cask at 67.5% ABV (135-proof) and just a great dram.
Caol Ila 12 is expensive at $80, but there’s a reason that I keep buying it: it is so well-made and complex that I call it the ‘thinking person’s dram’. Its package and label are way out-of-date and unattractive, but it is one of my favorite peated dram.
As it’s a delightful flight, do please join us and bring a friend as “good whisky is made great when shared among friends.”
