Title for The Whisky: The Whisky

It is our custom to gather in the Fall to remember distilleries that have left this mortal plane. But Spring is a time of rebirth, and so this month we come together to celebrate a few of those distilleries that were once lost, seemingly for good, but that have sprung back to life.

We did a Zoom version of this two years ago. It was largely an excuse to get together (virtually) and crack open a rare Bruichladdich Resurrection Dram. Well, another unicorn has fallen into our lap, so we’re doing it again, only this time in person. The star of this show will be Glenglassaugh “The First Cask,” one of only 650 bottles drawn from the very first cask filled after the distillery went back on line in 2008, and bottled the second it was old enough to be called Whisky. Is it any good? Hard to say, but we’re pretty sure that this will be your only chance, ever, to find out.
