Jolly Toper Tastings


Whisky Tasting Dates

 Jolly Toper’s whisky tastings normally take place every third Thursday night from 7:30pm until approximately 10pm at  The Kilderkin, 65/67 Canongate, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, For more details on the tastings themselves please click here. Visit The Kilderkin on Facebook to see what else they offer- like Rum Club, £1 pizza night, etc.
P/O/U/R/S = Peaty, Old, Unusual, Rare and Sherry cask matured. Recently many people have requested the exact nature of the line up at the ‘pours’ tastings remain secret so a proper ‘blind’ tasting can be held. However I understand some attendees would be more comfortable knowing which drams were to be tasted before committing to attending. If  you don’t want to know the confirmed line up contact us before checking the details listed below.

Coming soon: More vertical tasting (Benromach, Knockdhu), more ‘then and now malt comparisons, a tasting on a train, another barge tasting, distillery visits: Strathearn (?) and the final Edinburgh walking tour.

Next tasting – Thursday 30th August 2018 £25 7:30pm

Proposed line up (there might be some tweeks depending on luck)

Clynelish 2008 Signatory Bourbon cask 46%

Now and Then – the same dram bottled decades apart – is there a difference?

Top Secret but I can say distilled 1979

Something peaty probably cask strength Ardmore 8yo

Tasting will run every 3 weeks from the above date until Christmas.
