K&L Single Cask Tasting c/o LA Scotch Club

I know everybody in SoCal has been chomping at the bit for more tastings. While we haven't got the SoCal Salon up and running yet, I am trying to find ways for all of you to taste our various offerings before having to shell out for something that is untested. I mean I want you to take my word that the 1970 Glenfarclas we bought is worth $580, but I'm not going to be upset when you tell me you'd like to taste it first. While that idea was previously an idiosyncratic pipedream of nearly all who shop at K&L, today for a limited group it will become a reality. Thanks to the LA Scotch Club and their dedicated followers, we've been lucky enough to host our second "K&L Exclusive Bottle Tasting." It's popping off next Wednesday at a private location. The tasting fee includes dinner, which is just shocking for the price you're paying, and I will personally vouch for the quality this place is going to provide. Basically, we get a restaurant to ourselves with great food, great scotch, and great people. Don't get pissed that it's sold out, just...


Here is the official line-up:

1970, Glenfarclas

1993, GlenDronach 19 Year Old

1984, Benriach 27 Year Old

Faultline 10 Year Old North Highland

2003, Bruichladdich Peated

1998, Glen Garioch 14 Year Old 

Kilchoman 100% Islay Single Sherry Finish

1994, Caperdonich 18 Year Old Sovereign

I will also have a few extras on hand from my own personal collection. You may be lucky enough to also taste our Caol Ila 15 year Sovereign, Aberlour 20 Year Exclusive Malts, Benrinnes 12 year old Signatory, and maybe if you're super lucky get a little dribble of the last little bits of my Glenlochy 31 year (that one is a secret, so seriously don't tell anyone). If you have any questions about the event please feel free to reach out to me davidgirard@klwines.com.
