Picking a new cask for our club’s bottling

There’s no proper review today, since I didn’t really get around to writing a post yesterday.

Apart from being rather busy over the weekend I spent yesterday afternoon with 40 others from the Usquebaugh Society to pick a new cask for our annual club bottling!

It was already announced that it would be a Tomatin since Bram, our chairman, has been in touch with the people at the distillery for a while about this and they were quite willing to participate.

What also was cool is that Scott Adamson from Tomatin came to The Netherlands to host the tasting. He told us a lot about distilling history on the site of the distillery (and therefore, the distillery) while we were going through four drams that were options for the 2016 bottling.

Obviously, I will not (yet) be going in too much detail since the premier of that information will be in our club magazine. Just take it from the 40 tasters or so that it’s a good whisky at a good price.

I’m looking forward to it! We expect the bottling to be delivered somewhere in April or May, so it’s in time for our club’s annual whisky party.

The Usquebaugh Society rules!
