Some tasty whiskeys tonight

Recommended Posts

We have a whiskey tasting group and get together once a month to sample 5 whiskeys.

 

Speyside was the theme for tonight. Very tasty, the first 4 had just a little smoke on the nose but not on the tongue; the last one had more smoke on the tongue but still not so overwhelming that it was a liquid cigar. Next month we will try those - the leader selected some heavy peated drams for next month.

Scotch club meeting this week. Had some tasty drams once again, this month was "peat smoke" month. Four of the samples were 40-50 ppm smoke and the club bottle was supposed to be the smokiest every at 250 ppm. I must be getting used to the scotch peat smoke taste and smell because the first 4 didn't seem very smoky and the second and third bottles didn't seem to have any smoke on the nose or tongue and I thought were the best of the night. The last one didn't seem as smokey to me as others we have had so palate must have changed. We also had 2 of our club bottles that were on hand for sampling; the Japanese whiskey, Yamazaki, is pretty good.

January we are buying another expensive bottle for the club. Our funds have built up quite a bit so it is going to be a couple hundred dollar bottle again; one of the members is making a trip to pick it up because it isn't available here in Michigan.

This was only $48 and was one of the best of the night.

In fact for the price it was better than our club kitty malt of the evening, which was very good:

We paid about $330 for this bottle, and it was very good - but the 12 year old Auchentoshan was just as good.
