The Ides of March Why not celebrate early? The theme of this flight is triplets as I’ve selected 3 pairs of similar whiskies that should be good (and tasty) matches. Glen Moray sherry cask finish and Tomatin (it rhymes with ‘satin’) Dualchas are light, complex and delicious ‘thinking person’s drams’ with Tomatin featuring a virgin oak finish while Glen Moray is sherry cask finished. In our middle weight pairing, Penderyn (Wales) is made on the one-of-a-kind Faraday still and finished…

Let’s begin with Glen Grant Major’s Reserve. Grangestone 18-year-old Highland SM (a Total Wine brand) is aged in sherry casks. Our Royal Brackla is a 12-year by Ainsley Brae (a…

“Sure, you’ve been invited to lunch… but have you ever been invited to launch?” NASA-Atlanta: we have a ‘go’ for launch!  There’s no better way to introduce 4 new BenRiach expressions to the Georgia market than (drum roll followed by the Churchill Downs ‘call to the post’ trumpet riff)… by having a LAUNCH PARTY!  And it isn’t difficult.  It’s just a question of gathering a bunch of whisky aficionados and sharing 6 drams of fine BenRiach single malt (including 4…

Scotch for Summer! After a protracted search, two of our illustrious members found 4 bottles of Glen Grant The Major’s Reserve. It is a wonderful aperitif and, incidentally, a fine dram to enjoy during the summer. I can’t understand why Glen Grant malt continues to be only #10 in worldwide Scotch single malt sales. I bought two bottles from an estate sale: Glenfarclas 17 and BenRiach 10. As both were bottled in 2000- 2002 and thus distilled in 1983-1985 and…

November: Whisky Season Has Arrived! It’s likely that you haven’t recently tasted Fettercairn, Glen Ord or GlenAllachie. So, let’s have those 3 and add BenRiach, Balblair and Laphroaig of which you may already be a fan. BenRiach makes excellent all-rounder and digestif style whiskies, but did you know that its Heart of Speyside is one of the best aperitif style whiskies? I buy every bottle of Fettercairn that I come across, so I jumped at its new PX sherry bottling,…

“After 10-days, it’s time for a Break” So, we’re breaking out the good stuff: 6 single malts and lots of comfort food. Glen Moray Sherry Cask Finish (Speyside) is the key malt in two of the top ten best-selling Blended Scotches: Label 5 and Sir Edwards. With its capacity of 6-Mlpa (and plans to increase it to 9-Mlpa), its owner is now making a big effort in the US Single Malt Scotch market. That translates into attractive (low) pricing for…

Think rum, think Caribbean, think 90-degrees” Rum is a spirit that’s distilled either from fermented molasses (a by-product from sugar refining making) or freshly-pressed sugar cane juice. Because of its base material, molasses-based rums generally have a sweet note and flavors of molasses, banana and tropical fruit (their complexity is ramped up by aging them in barrels), while those made with sugar cane juice (like rhum agricole and Cachaça) have pronounced grassy and vegetal notes.

Bladnoch Samsara (11-yr) is a double-distilled Lowlander and Glen Garioch Founder’s Reserve Highlander are, surprisingly, of a similar astringent whisky style.  We’ll finish up with Talisker (Islands) and Ardbeg (Islay) for a big finish. …
