Kittel's Fine British Goods whisky tasting  - Lowlands vs Highlands

We had a great evening here and it's always a pleasure to work with the Kittel's team.

On the evening we focused on Highlands and Lowlands Whiskies and there were some great drams on offer. I liked the Auchentoshan as usual it's a great lowlands solid. I also used my own lowlands blend as of late I've been blending even more of my whiskies and am really enjoying it. We're offering our first Blending Seminar in march and I can't wait. The Highlands that stole my heart was the Deanston 15 year old organic. What a whisky, the definition of a slow burner. It's starts off a little shy but with every sip you take it unfolds into a very complex yet easy to drink scotch. Beautiful. We also had the Teaninich 10 which we really enjoyed and then the Gerston from The Lost Distillery as a smoky finish. I loved it but it really split the crowd. The power of Whisky!
