Title for The Whisky: The Whisky

“Leap into March” – A Leap-Year-Day Tasting Dinner

Our whisky menu is quite promising and our soup/salad/entrée/desert at the new GoodFellas Bar & Grill will be delicious. We will begin our whisky flight with the 1990 vintage Glencadam 20-Year from Gordon & Macphail (1895).

Fettercairn offers a unique taste profile that’s just right for our second pour: the 1997 vintage )19-Year) single cask from MMCD (Murray McDavid). Our third and featured whisky is Bladnoch 26-Year, its 2020 limited ‘distillery exclusive’ release. It’s a real cracker that I’m sure you will enjoy.

I have an on-going internal debate which Dalmore core expression is better: Dalmore Cigar Malt or 1263 King Alexander III. For this event, I’ve landed on Dalmore Cigar Malt. It was created decades ago to accompany fine cigars (no smoking at our event). Thankfully, it was bottled at the decent strength of 44% ABV.

Ben Nevis is my nominee as the most underrated great single malt that you will ever have the pleasure of discovering. It offers an array of rich sherry flavors and will pair up well with our previous pour. GlenAllachie Lum Reek is a lightly peaked blended malt (GlenAllachie & BenRiach) that really works whereas Lagavulin, our final dram, affords a power arsenal of maritime flavors.

Do please join us and bring a friend: “Good whisky is made great when shared among friends.”
