“Saturday Will Never Be the Same” (To modify the title of a 1967 song): A better theme for our Saturday afternoon single malt tasting would surely be “A flight of grand drams for a great organization.” In the case of our first 3 whiskies, the theme is Bourbon cask ageing at 46% ABV without chill-filtration or coloration.

Glencadam 10 was introduced to me by Lorne Mackillop, Master of Wine, who
happened to be the master blender at Angus Dundee Distillers. Deanston Virgin Oak is a newer expression that I’m quite keen on. Our final Bourbon cask dram will be Cotswolds 2014 Vintage, which is the best 3-year-old whisky that I’ve ever tasted! It is a stunner which makes me think what it might be at 10-12 years old.

The best of the fine Glenmorangie Extended Age Range is Quinta Ruban, a 12-
year finished in port pipes for 2-years. Bowmore 15 (fka The Darkest) is a fine
sherried whisky based on a 12-year maturation in Bourbon casks and a 3-year
finish in Oloroso sherry casks (mainly of toasted Spanish red oak). Our final dram, will be the king of the Ardbeg core range: Uigeadail, a peated single malt aged in sherry casks.

In sum, it a fine way to support a great cause. So, do please come along and bring a friend, as you’ll not be disappointed!
