MIT tasting: old and rare Scotch whiskies

I had a great time Wednesday night at the MIT old and rare Scotch whisky tasting, sponsored by the MIT Club of Boston. The event featured a tasting session led by Matt Chivian, a "keeper of the quaich" (scotch expert), and seven great whiskies by independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail.

The whiskies we tasted were:
  • Benromach 21 yr (a surprise malt)
  • Brora 24 yr
  • Port Ellen 27 yr
  • Old Pulteney 34 yr
  • Speymalt Macallan 35 yr
  • Strathisla 1963 44 yr
  • Glen Grant 1960 45 yr
If you're interested, keep your eyes open for another such event in November! (Send me an email if you want to be sure to get a notification when the registration link goes live.)

I'm very thankful the Club of Boston is sponsoring this event, as they have been awesome supporters of our fine spirits events on campus.
