Blind the age was difficult to spot but the sweet softness won everyone over - 100% thumbs up - a true rarity. I recall the SMWS bottled Lochside (93.3?) but I'd bet my house it was a grain, it appears record keeping was not their strength at Lochside for a period hence discriminating the single blend from the grain and malt was tricky...

I thought I'd share this post put on another site by my pal and co-host for this tasting Iain McLune, manager at Royal Mile Whiskies.:-

Continuing on from our adventure last year, it might be an idea to have another Japanese Whisky Tasting (Hurrah!).

This year we will have ;

The Nikka Anniversary Pack;
Miyagikyo 12yo 58%
Yoichi 12yo 58%
Coffey grain 12yo 58%
then a blen of the above three
Yoichi 1991 20yo 53% Heavily Peated La Maison Du Whisky

The tasting will start at 7.30pm at Kilderkin, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh

The price will be slightly higher at 25 this year.

As per usual it is 'vital' to pay for your ticket before the night, so please contact me on iainmcclune@hotmail.com or confirm your seat by popping into Royal Mile Whiskies or Cadenheads.

only a ten seats remaining, so let me know if your interested as soon as possible, thanks!

I look forward to seeing you all there.

Regards
