SOMETHING DIFFERENT… Oscar Wilde once mused that “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…” And let’s give Maimonides credit for writing (many have paraphrased his axiom about the importance of learning a trade): “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” That duly noted, Scotch whisky-making has been internationally deemed worthy of imitation to the point that virtually every nation is buying a lot of it and seeking to learn the trade to the point of making similar whisky themselves. Now, let’s grab a glass to determine how the other nations are doing. We will taste single malts from America (Alabama), England (South Central), Canada (Ontario), Wales (Cardiff), India (Bangalore), Ireland (Co. Louth) and France (Cognac). As we have a great flight of whisky, lots of good food and nice members who enjoy whisky as much as you, do please join us, meet Chef Sean and do bring a friend.
