Kensington Wine Market’s Spring Single Malt Festival

Thursday’s Spring Single Malt Festival was a huge hit, with a sellout crowd and a list of whiskies 120 deep. There were more than a few show-stoppers including the Glenfarclas 175th Anniversary Chairman’s Reserve, Glen Garioch 1978, Duncan Taylor Octaves Glenrothes 1970, Glenglassaugh North American Cask 37 Year and Glendronach Grandeur to name just a few. Some younger whiskies also made a mark like: the Glenglassaugh Revival, Springbank Rundlet’s & Kilderkins 10 Year, Kilchoman Sherry Matured, Glen Garioch 1986, Nikka Pure Malt White, Talisker 57 North, Bowmore Laimrig and Scotch Malt Whisky Society 53.156. And the tried and true workhorses also impressed, with some notable expressions including: Macallan 18 Year, Compass Box Spice Tree, the Classic Malts, Glenfarclas 15 Year, Ardbeg Uigeadail and Big Peat.

It was a great event, and we’d of course like to thank all the customers who made it out, agents who donated product and their time, and of course the Kensington Wine Market staff who helped put the event on.
