Mark from Edencroft Fine Wine & Spirit Specialists has let us know about a great event this weekend.
It is the annual Nantwich Food & Drink Festival and Edencrofts will be holding an instore tasting of some great whiskies, namely Dalmore and Jura (a full list of whiskies being tasted is listed below).
The tasting will take place at the following times:
Friday September 23rd – 10am until 4.30PM
Saturday September 24th – 10am until 4.30pm
Sunday September 25th – 11am until 3pm
The Whiskies to be tasted:-
|Dalmore 12 Year Old.
The Dalmore spirit benefits from longer than typical maturation – 12 years, instead of the more regular 10. Judicious selection and the precise balance of American white oak and Oloroso sherry wood, delivers their most vibrant expression – robust yet elegant, with an aftertaste of brilliant complexity.
|Dalmore 15 Year Old.
Time, different cask types, varying sizes, and warehouse conditions can all influence the maturity of a single malt. For this Dalmore, 15 years in bespoke Matusalem, Apostoles and Amoroso sherry butts from Jerez de la Frontera have been elemental. The redolence of these vessels delivers the perfect balance between spirit, wood and maturity.
|Dalmore Castle Leod 1995/Bordeaux Finish.
This limited edition bottling celebrates the ancient and historic seat of Clan Mackenzie and is the second in a series crafted by Master Distiller Richard Paterson in homage to Clan Mackenzie.
|Dalmore King Alexander III.
Over the course of their history The Dalmore’s remarkable spirit has been filled to French wine barriques, Madeira drums, sherry butts from Jerez, Sicilian Marsala barrels, port pipes from the Douro and bourbon barrels from Kentucky.
|Isle of Jura 10 Year Old.
Off the west coast of Scotland lies a magical island of soft sea breezes, freshly caught lobster and a bank that comes once a week. As good as life used to be. One shop, one pub, one community. One fine malt whisky distillery. A gift from nature.
|Isle of Jura 16 Year Old.
For sixteen years in beachside warehouses, the gentle sea breezes have combined to make a whisky that truly expresses the magic of the island. A great age to drink Jura according to the locals. The rich colour of golden sun rays combine with a taste of strong butter notes, tinged with oranges and spices, leaving a sweet toffee and honey finish.
|Isle of Jura Prophecy.
Prophecy is a single malt whisky that Jura have created to honour this tale of the third eye. Meticulously crafted from a selection of the finest and rarest aged Jura single malt whiskies, Prophecy is a profoundly peated spirit.
The people of Jura are superstitious. From the prophecy of the one-eyed Campbell to an aversion to cutting peat before May, age-old island beliefs resonate to this day. Drawing on our finest older malts and spring-peated younger whiskies, Jura Superstition is a tribute to the people, the traditions and the mystical heritage that make Jura island life unique. Visit the island, meet the people, explore the past.
I think it promises to be a great event and includes some great malt whiskies.
