Tasting #5 Recap: Islay Single Malt Scotch


The Saratoga Whisk(e)y Club had Tasting #5 on December 14, 2016.  The focus of the evening was Islay Scotch.  We announced on the same day our first international trip for the Saratoga Whiskey Club.  Next September we plan to go to Islay in Scotland.  We had four great Islay whiskies at our tasting:

  • We started with a Scotch Ale called Belhaven Scottish Ale
  • Bowmore Devil’s Cask, Batch III
  • Kilchoman 100% Islay, Edition #4
  • Ardbeg Perpetuum
  • Laphroaig Lore

Overall it was a fantastic tasting!  We are very much looking forward to going to Islay next September and bringing back some unique malts from the island.
