Jolly Toper Tastings


Whisky Tasting Dates

 Jolly Toper’s whisky tastings normally take place every third Thursday night from 7:30pm until approximately 10pm at  The Kilderkin, 65/67 Canongate, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, For more details on the tastings themselves please click here. Visit The Kilderkin on Facebook to see what else they offer- like Rum Club, £1 pizza night, etc.
P/O/U/R/S = Peaty, Old, Unusual, Rare and Sherry cask matured. Recently many people have requested the exact nature of the line up at the ‘pours’ tastings remain secret so a proper ‘blind’ tasting can be held. However I understand some attendees would be more comfortable knowing which drams were to be tasted before committing to attending. If  you don’t want to know the confirmed line up contact us before checking the details listed below.

Coming soon: More vertical tasting (Benromach, Benriach, Knockdhu, Glengoyne), more ‘then and now malt comparisons, a tasting on a train, another barge tasting, distillery visits: Strathearn (?) and the final Edinburgh walking tour.

Dates for 2018 are confirmed but the themes are to be confirmed
