To celebrate the start of the 2015 spring semester and also to welcome many of the newer members to the society we decided this week to put on a bargain basement tasting with tickets at £6! In order to pull this off we sought out the finest whiskies at the best prices available and here is what we served:

1: Singleton of Dufftown Spey Cascade ~ 40% (Diageo)

This new expression from the Dufftown distillery in Speyside was gentle, sweet and sherried

2: Dalmore 11 Years Old – Duthies ~ 46% (Wm Cadenhead)

A small batch, bourbon-matured Dalmore continued the gentle introduction to whisky

3: Glengoyne 17 Years Old ~ 40% (Ian McLeod & Co. Ltd.)

A rare chance to sample a discontinued sherried highland malt from Glengoyne

4: Glen Scotia 12 Years Old – Duthies ~ 46% (Wm Cadenhead)

Moving into the more challenging drams, this one from Campbeltown introduced a gentle amount of peat smoke infleunce

5: Caol Ila 10 Years Old 2003 – Small Batch ~ 46% (Wm Cadenhead)

The final dram from Islay was peat-filled but gentle and creamy

Huge thanks to the WOLS committee for all their hard work putting this together and running what turned out to be our fastest sell-out tasting for 112 thirsty WOLS members. Thanks also to the EUSA staff at Teviot Row House for their help and assistance on what was a very busy Thursday night in Refreshers week!
