Big guesswork at the „Scotch Mystery Tour on the 10th and 11th of March.
No hidden malignity or plain evilness were hidden in the programme.
Surprise – yes! In particular two blends of malt whiskies bottled at cask strength and two single grain whiskies finished in a “Trockenbeerenauslese” cask (= late harvested sweet wine matured in oak casks) provided by Helmut Gangl of Illmitz, one of the great producers of Austrian sweet wines.

See below the answer to the anonymous line-up of the “Scotch Mystery Tour”

Throughout the guests have welcomed this new format for a tasting – if this was due to the excellent food served prior to the tasting has not been finally decided.
In any case, we intend to incorporate this new format in one of our next tastings.

With our best wishes we look forward to welcoming you to our next tasting
