My whisky November

 5 Dec 2004  

In November I attended three whisky events, first the tast­ings arranged by Diageo Switzerland and Günther Wagner and then the "Whisky Ship". The highlights of these tast­ings were:

Bruichladdich 1968 (Legacy No. 3)91-92 p
Bruichladdich 1970 (Sign. Rare Reserve)     91 p
Bruichladdich 197390 p
Tamdhu 1958 (Hart Brothers)90 p
Ardbeg 1972 49.5% (Douglas Laing)89 p
Glenlivet 1975 (Sign)89 p
Inchgower 1976 (Rare Malts)88 p
Auchroisk 1974 (Rare Malts)88 p

Some other very good whiskies, which I didn't (or couldn't!) rate, were:

Springbank 35 y.o. (Dun Bheagan)
Glenlochy 39 y.o. (Jack Wiebers)
Tamdhu 1958 (Jack Wiebers)
Penderyn (a brand new Welsh single malt)
