Often when one thinks whisky, what jumps to mind are the sherry bombs, the power packed peat monsters, the salty brine maritime malt, or even a bourbon banana sweet… yet nestled amongst those bold, sometimes brash characters are a subtler lot…
One tends to associate a lighter, slightly sweeter touch with whiskies from the Highlands or Lowlands… though not necessarily so…
On my 2nd stop to The Single Cask, we picked the featured whisky flight with:
- Highland – Deanston 15 years (1997/2013) Cask No 1958 45.8% (The Single Cask)
- Speyside – Glen Moray 21 year (1991/2013) Cask No 9980 46% (Douglas)
- Speyside – Glentauchers 18 years (1996/2014) 2 casks 46% (Carn Mor)
- Speyside – Miltonduff 21 year (1995/2016) 45.8% (The Single Cask)
Some of these whiskies are found primarily blends – such as Deanston in Burn Stewart’s blends, the Glentauchers or Miltonduff in Ballantines. Whereas Glen Moray, a neighbour of Glentauchers and Miltonduff, is known for affordable single malts.
