Following our latest Dram Talk with Valinch & Mallet, it is only right to feature one of their earliest bottling from 2015. A Port Ellen, distilled in 1983, bottled in 2015 after a glorious 32 years in a refilled cask. The combination of a less active cask, coupled with long maturation, gave rise to a light coloured, clean expression that showcases the distillate characteristics. Seawater, iodine, ash, citrus fruits and a little chemical (shoe polish) greeted the nose. On the palate, saltiness, lemon, smoke, and it gets saltier with salivation in the mouth. Long finish with lots of seawater, peat smoke and ashes.

A very different Port Ellen from the previous one we tasted.

It was a gathering of friends and whisky enthusiasts in The Writing Club. We are honoured to have Davide Romano, co-founder of Valinch & Mallet, to host our Dram Talk 7. Guests were entertained by his eloquence and enjoyed the fascinating expressions by Valinch & Mallet, including a 32 years old Port Ellen.

Thank you Davide Romano for taking time away from your personal holiday to make this event possible! Thank you to all our guests for your continuous support to The Writing Club!

Till the next Dram Talk! Slainte!

Craigduff is an experimental, peated Speyside single malt produced in 1970s. Initially believed to be produced in Strathisla, it was later confirmed that it was in fact produced in nearby Glen Keith. The whisky was “double peated”, using both peated malt as well as peated water (brought in from Stornaway in drums). The peated water was added to the wash before distillation. Craigduff is never released as a single malt. Only a couple of bottling were released by Signatory Vintage.

Craigduff 1973 by Signatory Vintage, aged 32 years in Sherry Butt. Bottled at 49.4% ABV in 2005, only 566 bottles were available.

Nose: Honey bacon/bah kuah, peat smoke, cream, wax, light fruity notes

Palate: Toasted nut, dried grass(hay), vanilla, black tea, mineral(tar, wet earth), dried fruit(apple)

Finish: Medium, oak, peat smoke, cream

Very little sweetness, very unusual profile.

Valinch & Mallet was founded by Davide Romano and Fabio Ermoli, who came from different backgrounds, united by the common passion for whisky and the desire to transform it into a profession and share its fruits with everyone else.

Davide Romano quitted his job of 4 years in Financial Industry to pursue his passion in spirit and whisky and founded V&M. It started small but has since grown to a distribution network of 18 countries, across 4 continents.

For one evening only, Davide will be hosting a tasting event with 3 of V&M expressions. The Writing Club is proud to present this event to share the passion of fine whisky with our guests. Seats are limited to only 20, on a first-come first-serve basis.
