A Taste of Scotland | Maxwell’s Cigar Bar | 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
obermory 10 is such an interesting dram! Why? Did you ever wonder what a ‘peated whisky’ would taste like if it was made as an ‘unpeated whisky’ or vice versa? Well, the answer to those questions is Tobermory and Ledaig . I find it to be well-made and well worth discovering. English Whisky’s Classic expression is a perfect no. 2 in a six-whisky pairing: it’s wonderfully complex and has an outstanding bourbon cask aroma. MacLeod’s ‘Highland Region’ offering is one of the best value single malts. Benromach 15 is a sherry-bomb at 43% ABV! Tamdhu Batch Strength is a nuclear sherry-bomb at 58.8% ABV. We will finish with the best ‘campfire single malt’, as per Andy Smith, LASC: Ardbeg 10. At 46% ABV of Islay peated whisky perfection, Ardbeg 10 is a WINNER to be enjoy have your evening meal or with a cigar.
Around the World in 6 Cabernets | The Savvy Cellars | 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Cabernet Sauvignon is known as the king of red wine grapes, and the grape itself came about in 17th century France as a result of an entirely accidental breeding of a red Cabernet Franc grape plant with a white Sauvignon Blanc grape plant. Due to the grape’s ability to be grown in almost any climate that is not very cold, Cabernet Sauvignon is now one of the most widely planted red grape varietals in the world, and its wine is the most sought after. What’s not to like about a full-bodied red wine with dark fruit flavors and savory flavors from black pepper to bell pepper!
