For those not familiar, the range was introduced in the 1990s to make accessible lesser-known distilleries which typically do not have official single malt bottles as their liquid is instead providing the backbone of blends. Most are available at 43% – a hint above the minimum and mass production strength of 40% but not into the slightly stronger so-called connoisseur’s preferred strength of 46%. Most also are reasonably affordable… depending on where you purchase.
What goodies did our lovely virtual host buy for us?
- Teaninich 10 year 43% (approx GBP 47)
- Mannochmore 12 year 43% (approx GBP 48)
- Strathmill 12 year 43% (approx GBP 46)
- Linkwood 12 year 43% (approx GBP 48)
- Inchgower 14 year 43% (approx GBP 49)
- Auchroisk 10 year 43% (approx GBP 50)
We chose to split our sampling into two evenings:
- One late January 2021 combing Paris and Mumbai with the Teaninich, Mannochmore and Strathmill
- A second bringing together France and Germany featuring the Linkwood, Inchgower and Auchroisk
Please be a wee bit patient as we share our impressions with you in the coming weeks or so!
