Smagningen bliver gennemført den 23 Juni 2012 i Mol, Belgien

This must be one of the most interesting tastings I've ever come across. If I'm not mistaken, it will feature every BenRiach 1976 single cask ever bottled by the distillery, no less than 19 in total.
Our friend and BenRiach collector Serge Reijnders is behind the tasting.
His collection contains the well-known casks such as #8079 for Craigellachie and #8080 for The Nectar, as well as lesser known casks for Asia (#3029 for Shinoya, #3041 for BBI, #3010 for Auld Alliance"¦) and of course the casks for Germany and France (#3550 / #3558 for The Whisky Fair and #3551 / #3557 for LMdW). There's also a couple of 1976s bottled by Signatory and in between the flights there will be a peated whisky to balance the fruit galore.
Quite an unbelievable line-up. The tasting will be held in Mol, Belgium on June 23rd 2012. A barbecue and homemade desserts will round it off.
In case you're interested, check out the Facebook event page. Even though the entrance fee of € 200 may seem high, it will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. See you there!
