Special Tasting Series: Intensive Islay with Irish Whiskey Society Dublin

Thursday, February 13, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm GMT


Intensive Islay line up presented by Fionnán O’Connor, Dr. Jim Clarke and very special guest Ian Macmillan, Master Distiller and Blender.

The lineup has taken months of online searches, persuading friendly souls to part with some very hard to find bottles, trips to London and Edinburgh to collect bottles and checking into the local whiskey shops in Dublin for any left at retail… we can’t wait to sit down and be guided though each one of these exceptional expressions: 

  • Bunnahabhain 18 YO (Unpeated)
  • Caol Ila 2018 18 YO (Unpeated) Cask Strength
  • Bowmore Dusk (Bordeaux Wine Casked) Cask Strength
  • Bruichladdich’s Port Charlotte 2007 CC:01 (Cognac Cask) Cask Strength
  • Laphroaig Fèis Ìle 2016 12 YO Cairdeas (Madeira Cask) Cask Strength
  • Kilchoman 2006 12YO The Distillery Shop Cask Strength
  • Lagavulin Fèis Ìle 2018 18 YO Cask Strength
  • Ardbeg Kelpie 2017 Ardbeg Day Release
  • Port Ellen 1979 14 YO Signatory

We’re looking forward to this special tasting series event. Thanks to Fionnán O’Connor for all the work checking though available bottles, Dr. Jim Clarke for all his assistance and coming over especially for the evening and Ian Macmillan for traveling to join us at this Society tasting and share his time on Islay as Master Distiller and Blender at Bunnahabhain.

Due to the rarity and quality of the whisky on offer this Special Tasting Series ticket price is €50.00, which will allow the Society to break even for the tasting. As you can imagine we only have one bottle each so spaces are limited…

Priority booking for opens online for members Thursday 6th February at 12:00 noon, set your alarm / reminder as early booking is advised.
