Last night the Glengarry Malt Club was treated with a special guest from Christchurch’s Whisky Galore, Michael Fraser-Milne. Not long after returning to kiwi land following a two-week visit to Scotland, Michael shared stories straight from the distilleries themselves! A great line up and with cheese options paired alongside it, the evening was set to impress.
Opening the night with one of Gordon & MacPhail’s new releases, the Discovery 13-year-old from Tormore Distillery – a fantastic whisky to kick off the night, hinting Pineapple Lumps on the nose with a nice vanilla and baked apple taste on the palate. We sipped and savoured all night long exploring each whiskies tales and talents. The top two whiskies of the night would be the Benromach 10-year-old 100 Proof (57% ABV), which could be your next default dram as it covers all spectrums of a great whisky, and the Mortlach ‘Gordon & MacPhail’ 25-year-old (43% ABV), a rare release and will only grace our shelves briefly as we’ve only got a couple bottles remaining in stock.
A very special thanks to Michael for continuing to make time for us here at Glengarry and we’re looking forward to our next Malt Club with you… What shall we do next?
