April Whisky Tasting - "The Inaugural Meeting"

Bo'ness Whisky Appreciation Society

Bo'ness Whisky Tasting ClubApril 2015 Whisky Tasting Night

The next Whisky Tasting from the Bo’ness Whisky Appreciation Society in conjunction with Alan Mitchell of Straight from the Cask.

The Tasting will be held on Thursday 9 April at 8 for 8-15pm in the Corbie Inn.

5 Special Malts to Savour!

Another five malts to savour with the opportunity of tasting yet another mystery malt into the bargain!

And, of course, the usual fun with prizes, quiz and Special Whisky Raffle.

Great value at only £20 (+ biscuits and cheese)

The Bruichladdich 12 year old, matured in a first fill bourbon cask, was only bottled in October 2014 so that is likely to be a new one that you might not have experienced before (see tasting note below)!

The event is again organised by Alan Mitchell, your host for the evening, of straight from the cask, who has run a good number of our previous successful tasting nights.

By all the feedback, they've been very informative and, of course, both fun and enjoyable! And this one is likely to be no different!
