One for the Road: Actually, it’s 6 for the road that will lead 11 of us to bonnie Scotland as MASC’s 2021 Tour begins on September 13. So, let’s enjoy a great flight of whisky.
Scapa 10 is a very good aperitif style dram at 43%. Next up is SPEY Trutina which another bourbon barrel aged single malt, but a bit fuller at 46%. Glen Garioch 15 is an awesome Oloroso sherry cask dram at its cask strength of 53.7% ABV (distillery only bottling). Fettercairn 7 is a Battlehill expression bottled by Duncan Taylor at 56%. Laphroaig Quarter Cask is a delicious dram which non-chillfiltered and no color added and bottled at 48%. Quarter Cask is a personal favorite. Here’s a big finish: Lagavulin 12-Year 2020 Special Release at cask strength 56.4%.
Please join us and do bring a friend as good whisky is made great when shared among friends. *For those that would like to forgo the peat experience <gasp>, we’ll bring a couple of nice alternative drams.
