Wax Jambu 144-145 Upper Street London N1 1QY
Wax Jambu in Islington is well known for their Rum Cove and rum tastings. However, on 11-Jul-2012, it was the scene for a guided whisky tasting of the William Grant & Sons portfolio.
Joe Petch of Firstdrinks guided us through eight of their best selling whiskies.
- Glenfiddich 12 year old
- Glenfiddich 18 year old
- Glenfiddich 15 year old
- Monkey Shoulder
- The Balvennie Doublewood
- The Balvennie Single Barrel
- The Balvennie Portwood
- Tullamore Dew
Additionally, we were treated to samples of the Balvennie new make spirit (63.5%) and some ‘not-available-in-any-stores’ components straight from their distillery.
The tiny still in the pictures was running throughout, filled with Blue Moon Beer to demonstrate the distillation process.
