Taranty (Glencadam) 15-year-old

Bought – Online Whisky Auction, 31st October 2013

Like the Cawdordew I posted about yesterday, this is another curiously named malt by ‘The Whisky Connoisseur’ bottlers. I did a hunt for ‘Taranty’ and there’s a Taranty Fair in Brechin, where we find the Glencadam distillery and the source of this bottle. That makes sense. I then attempted to find out the meaning of the word ‘taranty’ and from the number of geneology links I got it appears to be a surname with origins in France. That suggests that the Taranty Fair was started by someone called Taranty, which also makes sense. As for the whisky itself, stopping writing this and drinking it makes complete sense!
