Diner's Club

     

Diner's Club whisky

Information: The Diner's Club bottlings were available as 8y, 15y & 21y primarily under the reward scheme for members, but also sometimes offered for sale to members.

These bottlings were produced by Douglas Denham, a subsidiary of Red Lion Blending, but both companies stopped trading sometime between 1999 and 2005.

 

 

   

Diner's Club, 8y, 40%

blended Scotch whisky

Typical cost of this bottle;

 
 

Nose: A bouquet of fresh herbs including a little mint wrapped in hay with just a touch of liquorice.

Palate:  Fiery on the front of the tongue but extremely smooth on the back and in the throat. Some red currants and berries mixed with malt.

Overall impression: This really is excellent for an 8y blend. I wish I could get hold of more.

 

   
   

Diner's Club, 15y, 40%

blended Scotch whisky

Typical cost of this bottle;

 
 

Nose: Nuts, marzipan and malt.

Palate: Wonderfully smooth with an array of nuts tantalising the palate.

Overall Impression: This is possibly even better than the 21y and an absolute gem. I love this.

 

     
   

Diner's Club, 21y, 43%

blended Scotch whisky

Typical cost of this bottle;

 
 

Nose: Hints of lavendar, popcorn, heather and marzipan.

Palate: Smooth but a little slow to develop, although when it does the palate is caressed with heather and other rather floral herbs right on the front of the tongue.

Finish: Short, but leaving an aftertaste of marzipan

Overall Impression: Extremely smooth and very good.
