Sometimes you just want to enjoy classic styled whiskies… with a flight that has a straight forward age progression from younger to older… no experimentation, just a standard combination of ex-bourbon cask and ex-sherry maturation.
That is exactly what we did this month, sampling each malt blind… And yet it wasn’t entirely as “traditional” an experience as one would think…
Our original tasting group went “traditional” with a Scottish trio:
- Linkwood (1998/2012) Cask No 5014 Refill Sherry Hogshead 46% (Gordon & MacPhail) – When tragedy struck!
- Old Pulteney 17 year 46% – Revisit of a familiar friend and fine dram
- Royal Brackla 21 year 40% – Royalty has its place
