It's been a little while since my last post but that's not to say that whisky has been far from my life! After an introduction at the tale end of 2014 I'm now a "proper" member of
and what fun it is!! I'm still finding my way and getting to know fellow members but its clear that they're well informed, organised, friendly and welcoming. Their January "Barrel Night" was held in it's regular venue of the
in North Street and in light of it's proximity to Burns Night it had a Burns theme with haggis, needs, tatties etc. (all excellent BTW). We were served six interesting and varied drams (photo's below) including the first Dutch whisky that I've tasted.
The least popular of the evening? Ardbeg Kildalton
The most popular? Kilchoman Port Cask
Lessons learnt? Expensive does not necessarily mean good and port cask whisky is extremely interesting!
