Malt Club: Glenglassaugh and BenRiach New Arrivals

On Thursday 12th of April, Kenny Ariaens presented his first Malt Club; Glenglassaugh and BenRiach New Arrivals. Kenny is the Spirit Ambassodor at Hancocks Wine, Spirit and Beer Merchants Limited. He has recently been over in Scotland visiting these great whisky distilleries; we thought there would be no better person to host this night. Kenny’s style of presenting effortlessly fitted our Malt Club regulars (like how well the Glenglassaugh Peated Port Wood Finish matched alongside our Mahoe Blue cheese); someone who can create an open atmosphere embracing our “Lloyds” and “Craigs” as well as the new comers. We tasted our way through 4 whiskies from each distillery, exploring their use of different wood finishes. Some favourable mentions of the night: Glenglassaugh Revival, Glenglassaugh Peated Port Wood Finish, Glenglassaugh Pedro Ximenez Wood Finish, BenRiach 22-Year-old PT. PX Albariza and BenRiach 21-Year-old.
