It’s been a while since I posted a review, but I’ve been trying to work my way through a cold that my lovely daughter brought home from daycare. It’s going in the right direction so I hope to be back at more regular postings after the weekend.
This post is just to get your attention for our club’s annual Blind Tasting Competition. This year it’s running for the fourth time and it’s promising to be a good one with already 65 contestants.
The competition has been opened to non-members now and you only need an account on our website to participate (www.levenswater.nl) from December 6th to 23.
What is it:
You get 18 samples of whisky that can come from anywhere in Scotland, and are all single malts. Apart from that it can be any bottling that is on Whiskybase.
Every day you taste one sample and fill in what you think is the right answer, and by scoring points on multiple categories you hope to end high on the list:
- 40 points for the correct distillery, subtract 20 if you only get the region right
- 40 points for the correct age, subtract 10 for each year you’re off (minimum of 0)
- 20 points for the correct ABV, subtract 1 for each tenth of a percent you’re off.
I generally suck at this, but I’m hoping to do better than I did last year. Plus, technically the samples are cheap for what you’re getting!
So, go to www.levenswater.nl and sign up! There’s some 7 spots left!
