13 October 2019 from 11:00 to 17:00 - Find the Best 18 Years Old Single Malt

Location: The Whisky Shop Dufftown Duration:  30 minutes We at The Whisky Shop Dufftown are continuing our mission to find the best 18 Years Old Single Malt Whisky and we need your help!  Come along and sample a selection of 5 x 10ml measures of 18 Year Old Single Malt whiskies in a relaxed "blind" tasting and vote for your favourite.  The current champion is Glenrothes 18 Years Old and we will be selecting 4 new challengers to see if they can take it down. Drop in any time between 11:00 and 16:30 and see which you think is the best.  It should take you no more than 30 minutes. Have you worked it out yet?  You get to try 5 18 Year Old whiskies which would be the equivalent of a double pub measure for less than the price of one.  What could be better? At the end of the festival during our closing event we will announce the winner.  We will also draw a voting slip at random and that person will win a bottle of their favourite whisky from the tasting. The winner of this year's competition will be pitted against 4 new challengers at next years festival as we continue our search for the best 18 Year Old.  We will make the selections from Distillery Own bottlings that are not limited releases. Over 18's only please.  Please ensure you have read our terms and conditions for events.  If you want to contact us about this event please email us on enquiries@whiskyshopdufftown.com or phone us on +44(0)1340 821 097.
