Tom Lobonc found a bottle for us! My favorite sherried single malt (under $100) is GlenDronach Revival 15 (Brown-Forman owned) 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 (action item: buy now). 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 (although we have had the D-12 and T-10 during that period). Ledaig cask strength (an almost 14) is a stunner (and a nice surprise!). 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 (2003 Vintage, bottled in 2015 as a 12-yo at cask strength). It’s some good!
