Scotland 2013 - Day 5 - Making A List

We're back at the hotel in Glasgow, going over the samples and making a list. Where are we at right now? We don't know pricing on a lot of these, but this is a short list so far:

1991 Cambus - a fun little grain whisky with some serious age. The distillery is no longer open as well.

1995 Glenlivet - a sherry butt that might be really fun at 46%. Just rich and easy and delicious.

1995 Imperial - this is so fruity, soft, and round. Very much like our beloved Bladnoch cask from 2011.

1994 Benriach - a peated ex-Bourbon barrel that offers sweet grains and oily smoke. Yum.

1993 Glendronach - a powerful, woody, less supple sherry number.

1995 Glendronach - a softer, sweeter, supple sweetheart.

1993 Balblair - this one really surprised us. It's full of stonefruit, vanilla, with a wonderfully rich finish.

2006 Caol Ila - Don't laugh, but this is our favorite cask so far. It's what we've been drinking all night.

1990 Glenfarclas - classic sherry from the classic Highland distillery.

2001 Glenfarclas - a softer, more easy going expression.

2000 Glenfarclas - rich and supple, full or orange liqueur on the nose.

We've still got four more appointments and this list doesn't count anything from today with the Laing brothers. There might be another six casks from Sovereign, or even seven. Again, once the pricing comes through on some of these we might say, "Whooooooooooooa."
