Title for The Whisky: The Whisky

From Scotland With Love (And Ireland With Its Best Regards):

Yes, it is a busy time and I’ve selected 6 whiskies to tempt you to make an appearance at our 6th of January 2022 tasting event. We haven’t offered a Glen Spey since 2016, so let’s right that oversight with G&M’s 1995 vintage, at an apéritif appropriate 43% ABV.  Almost every drop of Glen Spey is used in the J&B Rare Scotch Blend, so it may be another 5-years till I have a bottle.

Ardnamurchan is an excellent recent release from this modern distillery which is owned by whisky veterans Falconer, Houston & Bruce. It’s a stunning dram! From Mark Reynier’s Waterford Distillery in Ireland, we’ll taste Rathclogh 1.1, an organic single malt bottled at 50% ABV. All of the barley malt was grown at the adjacent Rathclogh farm and malted locally: yummy.

Vinaya is a cracker from the new rock-star of the Lowlands: Bladnoch. It turns out that an Australian millionaire was able to hire away Wm Grant & Son’s top whisky maker under 40-years-old. If you enjoy a happy ending: Vinaya awaits you.

The maniacs at SMWS have bottled a 61% ABV Glenlossie and apply named it Tip ‘N Sip. As Glenlossie is typically a gentle blending malt, this monster will startle you.

Next, Malt Advocates’ 2021 Single Malt of the Year: Lagavulin 2021 Offerman Edition 11-year was finished in Guinness casks for 4 months and bottled at 46% sans chill-filtration or coloration. Do come hungry, as we will have lots of good food. Invite your friends as “good whisky is made great when shared among friends.”
