"Scotch Whisky Class"



When: Saturday, December 15 From 2:00 - 3:30 pm

Host: Cam Dauterive of Hartley & Parker Distributors







Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Lowlands)

93 Points Wine Enthusiast


Smooth and light, this single-malt Scotch segues effortlessly from vanilla, butterscotch and coconut sweetness to soft smokiness and back again, finishing on a zesty hint of citrus flavor.










The Arran Malt Distillery Robert Burns Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Isle of Arran)

Named for the famed Scottish bard who will forever be tied to the great water of life, the aromas and flavors here are evocative enough to inspire more than a few stanzas of awe and appreciation. For an island malt, the whisky is surprisingly delicate, refined and focused with bright fruit and floral flavors. Notes include white peach, mulberry, green apricot, coconut, heather and sweet grass.










Glen Grant 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Speyside)

95 Points Wine Enthusiast

This burnished gold whiskey shows apple and pear drizzled with butterscotch on the nose and palate, plus campfire smoke and gingerbread spice on the exceedingly long exit. A splash of water tames the heat and transforms the oak into vanilla and buttery brioche.










Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or 12 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Highlands)

94 Points Ultimate Spirits Challenge


Dried apricot and subtle wood smoke create an enchanting aroma that swirls from the glass. The complex flavors start as concentrated peach with salted caramel before deepening into crispy creme brulee topping and coffee grounds. Absolutely gorgeous.







Bowmore 15 Years Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Islay)

91 Points Ultimate Spirits Challenge


A deep amber color in the glass, it shows strong aromas of cherry wood smoke overlaying dried fruits and roasted nuts. It begins dry in the mouth with a burst of savory honey before turning back to bright wood smoke, dried cherry, and nutmeg.
