Taste Of Scotland: Single Malt & Heavy Bites | Landmark Diner | 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Tom Lobonc found a bottle for us! My favorite sherried single malt is GlenDronach Revival 15  which has been off-the-market since 2013, so my thanks to Tom! The good news: it will be re-launched in 2018 when sufficient stock of 15-year-old whisky becomes available again, but then GlenDronach 18 will suffer a 4-5 year sequester. We’ll begin with Major’s Reserve from the great Glen Grant distillery. For the first time in 2-years, we will taste Dailuaine 10 and Teaninich 12  Ledaig cask strength  is a stunner. What can I say about Lagavulin 12? It is something to look forward to every year; we will try the so very hard to get 2016 Edition. It’s so good!
