You can find everything you need to know about the »Young & Spritely” aroma profile in the»Where flavour comes alive” series in our August edition of Outturn. A profile made for balmy summer nights.
You can also discover a Society bottling from Canada, 152.3: A fistful of bananas, and one from Sweden, 144.4: … and they were never seen again!, for the very first time in Switzerland. They couldn’t be more different: the Canadian delights with tropical fruits, ginger and citrus fruits and the Swede with gherkins, tar, glazed grilled pork ribs and a lot of peat – so it’s no surprise the latter fits into the»heavily peated” profile.
In the small batches, we have now reached numbers 18 and 19. These bottlings keep showing up with a new look. Batch 18 features Australian ex-Shiraz wine casks and Batch 19 features American Oak Hogsheads made especially for the Society, which were filled with smoked barley wine before the whisky went in.
And as always, you will also find all of the tasting dates until the end of the year – everything will be starting up again in September and I look forward to seeing as many members as possible in person again.
Enjoy the end of the summer and best regards!
