The Takapuna Glengarry store had a history of great wine clubs and tastings over the years and the tradition has been brought back with the first Single Malt Club night.
Thanks for the keen attendees who came to learn about Single Malts. It was a course designed for beginners with an in depth chat about production processes and the regions of Scotlands Single Malts.
The whiskys tried were from across all regions and a very nice little line up, Jura boutique Barrel probably the favourite but there were also stars like Bunnahabhain and Bruichladdich.
We were also priviledged to have Greg Ramsey drop in and give us a little bit of background on the NZ Whisky story and we tried the NZ whisky that knocked off Ardbeg Uigedail at the recent NZ vs Scotland challenge in Scotland. A 1988 cask strength bottling.
Look out for the next Takapuna Tasting, Great fun!
We tired Glenrothes 1995, Hazelburn 8yo, Laddie 10, Jura 10, Caol Ila 12, Jura Prophecy,and Boutique 1995, Bunnahabhain 12, Bowmore 18 Milford 18, NZ Whisky 1988 and some awesome Didas Cheese.
