Who wouldn’t want to try a few convivial warming drams in this chilly season? We think there’s something for everyone in this lovely and eclectic selection:
- Glenkinchie 12 yo – Just won ‘best lowland’ in the Whisky Mag Best Whiskies 2013. Light and fresh. The aperitif.
- Bruichladdich 1992 micro provenance – a single cask matured for 17 years in ex-bourbon casks. Expect a gorgeously complex glass. Jim McEwan says lick your lips to catch the sweetness…
- Shackleton’s Discovery – A rare taste of history “…not what anyone would have expected. It’s so light, so fresh, so delicate, and still in one piece. It’s a gorgeous whisky. …Proves that even way back then, so much care, attention and thought went into whisky making. I think the replication is absolutely bang on…” – Dave Broom.
- Nikka Taketsuru 12 yo – a melding of malts from the Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries, named after the godfather of Japanese whisky…. World Whiskies Awards 2012 – Best Non-Scotch Blended Malt 12 years and under; 2007 Best Japanese Single Malt Whisky.
- Dailuaine 16 yo – a lovely smooth fruity dram with a hint of smoke. Only 2% of the distillery’s output goes into single malt. Pass the cigars.
- Ardbeg Corryvreckan – Matured in a proportion of new French oak, alongside 1st and 2nd fill bourbon casks. (If you’ve got any other Ardbeg at home, why not bring a sample to compare?)
We’ll start at 8pm (gathering from 7:30pm) on Wednesday 22 May.

It’s another 6-whisky evening, and some of these bottles cost a bit more than of late. So we’ve had to raise the stakes a little to (gasp, shock) the princely sum of £18.
