October Whisky Tasting at Divino's - and a few pics from Manotick.

UPDATE - Next whisky tasting at Divinos is Thursday, October 2nd 2014. Contact Divinos for reservations.

Join us on Thursday, October 17th, 2013 at Divino Wine Studio for another great whisky tasting, paired with fabulous food from the amazing culinary team led by Chef Cristian Lepore.
The photo's a bit of a tease, but we don't want to give it all away, do we! But I will tell you that, in the lineup, we have a 21 year old Single Cask Speyside, a stunning Canadian whisky, a delicious Distiller's Edition, a new entry from a well respected Speyside Distillery, and a wonderful mouth-watering 15 year old from Islay. Hope you can join us for a fun, educational and delicious evening at Divino's.

Last week I was at Watson's Mill in Manotick to lead the Annual Fundraiser Whisky Tasting. A capacity crowd enjoyed four totally different whiskies, food nibbles by The Mill Tavern, and a great evening of laughter and conversation.

I'm always pleased to serve Glenfiddich 15 year old, a unique whisky, utilizing a Solera system, which produces luscious flavours, and a whisky older than its years. I'm doubly pleased if it's on the bill these days, as $2 from every bottle sold in Canada is donated to Wounded Warriors Canada - a very worthwhile Charity.
The Arran Malt Sauternes Cask was elegant and delicious, Laphroaig Quarter Cask pleased the peat loving palates in the room, and Blanton's Gold Edition Single Barrel Straight Bourbon provided a rich and spicy finish. In my world, these are all four quaich whiskies.
