Master Malt Tasting Tomorrow Night

There are still 4 spots available for Tuesday June 26th Master Malt Tasting at Kensington Wine Market! We will be sampling a range of 7 single malt Scotch whiskies, the youngest of which is 25 years young, and the oldest 46 years. The whiskies will be sampled blind, as per the usual, to make certain the whiskies speak for themselves and prevent the biases of price, brand and age from creeping in… It will be an excellent tasting. Call the store at 403-283-8000 to register or you can do so online at https://www.kensingtonwinemarket.com/tastings/register.php . Tuesday’s lineup is as follows:

  1. Auchentoshan 1975 – 46.9% – Bourbon Cask – 500 total bottles – $423.99 + GST
  2. BenRiach 1978 Virgin Oak Finish –  50.9% – Virgin Oak Finish – Exclusive to KWM in Canada – $313.99 + GST
  3. Glendronach Grandeur 31 Year – 45.9% – 1013 Bottles – 94.5% Whisky Bible – I can’t believe there are still bottles of this unsold… – $576.99 + GST
  4. Glen Garioch 1986 – 58.6% – 25 Year – 90pts Whisky Advocate – Brand new to Alberta! – $173.99 + GST
