The Tasting

2015 Charity Dinner

The whisky tasting before our 2015 dinner was provided by Stewart Laing of Hunter Laing and Company Limited.

Stewart has been an outstanding supporter of SAFG and we were delighted that he was leading the tasting for the 2nd time in our 5 year history.

First up was a grain whisky, 41 years in age from the closed Edinburgh distillery Caledonian. This was an incredible start to the night: a sweet, fruity dram with vanilla flavours that was popular throughout the company.

The second dram was not shabby either. A 27 year old Tamdhu ….

Finally a Whisky Shop exclusive made specially by Hunter Laing. Loch Fyne 1745, a gold medal award winner from Jim Murray’s 2016 bible.
