Best of the Best 2019 - Whisky tasting with Daniel Bruce McLaren - Tuesday 19 November, 6pm, Harbourside Function Venue, Cable Room, $120pp

Tuesday 19 November, 6pm, Harbourside Function Venue, Cable Room, $120pp (4 Taranaki Street Wharf, Cnr Cable & Taranaki St.)

We've worked especially hard this year tasting our way through a rather fantastic array of single malts (it's a hard job but someone has to do it) and, as ever, we've selected the best from the year to go through to our grande finale - Best of the Best

There'll be palate cleansing beer supplied by our friends at Kereru, the address to the haggis - then served as a taster with neeps and tatties - and a yearly review poster as supplied by Daniel.

Here's the lineup, including the highest ever scoring whisky at a Regional tasting...

  • Glenfarclas Family Casks 2002 Cask #3773 (Glenfarclas Family Casks - sister cask of winner)
  • Ardnamurchan Malt Spirit 2018 Ad 55.3% (Salt & earth - adventures in peat)
  • Benriach 2005 12yo Cask#2565 Batch 14 first fill oloroso sherry butt 58.8% (The Benriach vertical)
