March 1, 2017


Joe writes,

Last week's Scotch tasting was with Gordon & Macphail selections.

We would like to thank Richard Urquhart and Joe Swanson for leading us through these fine whiskies.

We started with the Clynelish 11 Y.O. which is a whisky that I think shows very well. $79.99, Special $72.99

The Glenturret 11 Y.O. has a sherry influence with a nice toffee note and was a real crowd pleaser. This is one to try if you did not make the tasting. $79.99, Special $72.99

The third whisky is always a favorite- the Mortlach 15 Y.O. This whisky is something that people just adore. We have many customers that always want Mortlach 15 Y.O. and have no desire to change. $89.99, Special $81.99

The Glenburgie 21 Y.O. is a wonderful single malt that you do not see very often. Fragrant with hints of rose petals, some delicate sweet influences emerge. Hints of cracked pepper and tropical fruit linger on the palate. $169.99, Special $154.99

The fifth was the Benromach 10 Y.O. This is always an amazing single malt that is a great every day dram or the one you show to people that have not had the good fortune to taste. Just wonderful. $58.99, Special $53.99

Caol Ila 12 Y.O. finished in a Sassicaia cask for 33 months bottled under The Private Collection label which are single malts chosen by members of The Urquhart family. This has summer fruit influences, with smooth milk chocolate.complemented by a peat smoke edge. $104.99, Special $94.99


Special tasting prices until Tuesday March 7.
