WDTS (Whisky-Distilleries Tasting sessions)
(Blind tastings)
Session 4

Français | English

The fourth session of WDTS ended Aug. 31, 2011. This session was longer than usual. The time allocated to the tasters was exceptionally two months, because of the holiday period. Period when many people are missing, and also time is not conducive to whisky tasting for those who are lucky enough to live in the South of France, where the sun does not always mix well with the tasting ...
This session, like the previous was exciting. I want to thank the producers who have sent their whiskies. A big thank you too to the 19 participants who returned their tasting notes.
Producers who have made this meeting possible are:

  • The Whisky Agency / Liquid Sun who sent us 3 bottles
  • Master of Malt participating for the third time, this time with two bottles
  • Whiskies of Scotland, Huntly who have kindly given a bottle on the occasion of my last visit to Scotland.

Regarding this session, we can note the presence of two Single Grain (Cameronbridge and North British), which probably throwed more than one participant. The sessions are prepared according to what the producers want to send me ...
This session is also characterized by very large differences on some bottles. Real "Love it of Hate it"? I do not know ... but it proves that the tastes are not unanimous on all the whiskies presented. And that's good. Needless to say, everyone was surprised, however, by differences of 41 or 45 points on two bottles. But the odds are justified by the corresponding notes. This makes the sessions even more exciting.
The "winners" of this session are:

numero 1 Tomatin Liquid Sun 1976, Liquid Sun 88
numero 2 Cameronbridge Whiskies of Scotland 31 years old (46%) 86
Numero 3 Tamdhu Liquid Sun 1990 85
Coup de coeur Tamdhu Liquid Sun 1990

Coup de coeurthis dimension "favorite" is assigned according to purchase intentions compared to price. This bottle got 13 points during the session.
(Cameronbridge followed with 12 points, North British and Cragganmore with 4 points, with 3 points and Tomatin Ardmore with 2 points)
