Water Of Life Society Tasting 15/1

Return to Drammage



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!
