Corona and Brexit didn't make it easy, but 4 amazing drams made their way to our stock over the last months.
The first one is an Australian Single Malt from the Starward distillery. It is fascinating to see what quality in whisky distillers all over the world have achieved over the last years. The Starward is a perfect example of what a great cask (Australian Red Wine) and the warm climate down under can create in only 4 years of maturation.
Second to arrive was an Inchgower from the famous independent bottler that is Gordon & MacPhail. The second fill sherry cask gave it lots of sherry influence without transforming it into a "sherry bomb" that masks all the spirit's natural flavours. This whisky rather quickly sold out and is no longer available.
Number three is an original bottling from Billy Walker's newest project The GlenAllachie. Matured in a Madeira Barrique it has a very pleasant sweetness without giving up on strength and complexity due to its cask strength.
Last but not least we have been gambling. By bottling a whisky that most people just know as THE cheap single malt that you can find at almost every gas station in Luxembourg: Glen Moray. But boy, what a dram. Personally I think that it is the best first fill bourbon matured single malt that I have been drinking in a while. Our members seem to agree as it is selling rather quickly.
All of our bottlings are single casks and once they sell out, there will be no more bottles alike. If you are interested in purchasing them, become a member and contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another amazing dinner created by chef Yves Radelet in Drauffelt. Thanks to the Covid-check regime we were finally allowed to organise one of our famous dinners again. On November 20th, nearly 70 members of our club had the first whisky dinner in two years.
Yves Radelet prepared 5 impressive courses to match our latest bottlings and the surprising Bladnoch 17 that we discovered during a tasting in Saeul. As pictures say more than a thousand words, just have a little look:
