Our third birthday evening started off with 2 Speyside classics from The Glenrothes Distillery, The Manse Reserve and the 2001 Vintage. We then unveiled a couple of new drams: an Indian single Malt from Rampur aged in ex-bourbon and ex-Shery cask, alongside the pre-release of Tasmanian Independent Bottler's TIB RD0014 Muscat cask. A 50%abv Brabazon edition 1 Sherry bomb from Teeling followed, and we finished the event with our special mystery dram - $1000 bottle of Jack Daniels Sinatra Centenary bottle.
Tasting the Octomore 08 series individually is an experience, but tasting them as a set and comparing and contrasting them with friends was one of the most enjoyable things a whisky lover could do. Bucket list stuff.
