Tasting – July 14, 2023
Our July tasting included three malts from the Highland and Speyside regions. Surprisingly, we had not tasted the Aberlour 12 year old until now. We thought it a soft and mellow malt with lots of fruit and sherry – a reasonably priced daily dram. The Benromach 15 year old was beautifully dry with notes of malt and leather. It finished nicely with spice and a hint of smoke. Our final taste was a Tomatin Cu Bocan. It was a subtle malt with hints of sweet chillies, nuts, and a hint of smoke, unusual for a Tomatin.
