This tasting series which happens every two weeks attempts to explore all 160 Scottish distilleries (post-WWII). We will not only taste active distilleries, but also silent famous distilleries. To expand our whisky appreciation, we will taste a variety of styles (single-malt, single-grain; bourbon, sherry, and wine cask; unpeated, peated; older whisky, younger distillate-forward whisky). Bottles are sourced from auctions, distilleries, and private collections and average $300 per bottle. Join our group when you can as we meet every two weeks on Zoom.
What you get: six, 1-ounce samples where average bottle price is $300, a tasting glass, tasting notes with fun scotch facts and distillery information. Some tastings include a donated Mystery Malt when the $1800 budget runs out at five whiskies.
