Tobermory 10 is such an interesting dram! Why? Did you ever wonder what a ‘peated whisky’ would taste like if it was made as an ‘unpeated whisky’ or vice versa? Well, the answer to those questions is Tobermory (Unpeated) and Ledaig (Peated). I find it to be well-made and well worth discovering. English Whisky’s Classic expression is a perfect no. 2 in a six-whisky pairing: it’s wonderfully complex and has an outstanding bourbon cask aroma. MacLeod’s ‘Highland Region’ offering (Glengoyne) is one of the best value single malts. Benromach 15 is a sherry-bomb at 43% ABV! Tamdhu Batch Strength is a nuclear sherry-bomb at 58.8% ABV. We will finish with the best ‘campfire single malt’, as per Andy Smith, LASC: Ardbeg 10. At 46% ABV of Islay peated whisky perfection, Ardbeg 10 is a WINNER to be enjoy have your evening meal or with a cigar.
I’ve carefully selected these whiskies to provide a couple of all-bourbon drams, followed by 3 sherry-cask drams and finishing with a boldly peated bourbon casker. So, do come and try it for yourself… and do please bring a friend. Sláinte.
