Thank you to those who attended the event. We thoroughly enjoyed tasting several premium scotch whiskies and learning about the background, history and distilling process. Swiss timepieces proved to a perfect combination to complete the event. Patrons had a chance to learn about the world of horology and glanced at some iconic timepieces from Breguet, Baume & Mercier, Breitling, and Omega.
THE SCOTCH LINE-UP:
Glenkinchie 12 year old (Lowlands)
Aged 12 years in former Bourbon barrels.
Offers soft vanilla flavors and a soft grain note.
Gordon & Macphail Linkwood 15 year old (Speyside)
Aged in former Sherry barrels.
This aging creates a rich, sweet Single Malt with layers of toffee, nougat & sherry almond flavors.
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 12 year old (Highlands)
Aged for 10 years in former Bourbon barrels then re-racked in former Port casks for 2 more years.
Shows delicate floral and vanilla flavors up front followed by a soft candied fruit note on the finish.
Mortlach Rare Old (Speyside)
One of the “back bone” Whiskies in the Johnnie Walker blends.
Offers rich, creamy and nutty flavors. Well balanced with a soft finish.
Talisker Storm (Isle of Skye)
Aged with the use of more “rejuvenated” casks.
Offers more of a pronounced maritime note than the Talisker 10.
2013 Whisky Advocate Highland / Island Whisky of the Year!
Ardbeg 10 year (Islay)
Big and bold.
This Islay malt offers layers of peat smoke, tobacco and leather aromas and flavors.
