The Ides of March

Why not celebrate early? The theme of this flight is triplets as I’ve selected 3 pairs of similar whiskies that should be good (and tasty) matches. Glen Moray sherry cask finish and Tomatin (it rhymes with ‘satin’) Dualchas are light, complex and delicious ‘thinking person’s drams’ with Tomatin featuring a virgin oak finish while Glen Moray is sherry cask finished.

In our middle weight pairing, Penderyn (Wales) is made on the one-of-a-kind Faraday still and finished in Madeira wood while Benromach 15 is made in traditional coal-fired pot stills and aged in a combination of bourbon and oloroso sherry casks. In the full-flavored set, we’ll taste Ardmore 6 (from Duncan-Taylor’s Battlehill range) which is a modestly peated (12-14 ppm) Highlander checking in at a hefty 58% ABV whereas our Caol Ila 8 (from Andrew Symington’s Signatory cask strength range) arises from malted barley peated at 35-38 ppm and a single cask bottled at 59.8% ABV. So, do please join us for an enjoyable whisky tasting at Landmark Diner.

Please remember to invite a friend, as “good whisky is made great when shared among friends.”
