Tonight, my local bottlo hosted a Glenfiddich tasting night. The Aust-NZ brand embassador was an enlightening speaker, covering brand history, distillation info, and interesting trivia.
We had the pleasure of sampling 6 different whiskeys - 12yo 15yo 18yo IPA XX and 21, along with delicious antipasto platters from the local Italian restaurant.
Starting with the 12 then progressing though the ranks though to the 21. As expected, the 12 was the roughest and the 21 was the smoothest. But my favourite was the XX - the body, the flavour, the note and the after taste on the palette - just like a sweet kiss.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening. If your local bottlo hosts a whisky tasting night, get on it!
