Magnum's is excited to bring you a very special evening with Mr. Andrew Weir, the US Ambassador for Balvenie and Mr. Ray Pearson, the US Ambassador for Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotches. This Tuesday, January 26th at 7pm we will be releasing two very anticipated single malts for 2010. The first will be the 2010 Balveinie 17yr old Madeira Finish.
The Balvenie Madeira Cask was aged exclusively in traditional American oak whisky casks before being transferred to barrels previously used in the production of fortified Madeira wine. The deep, luxurious aromas translate into an equally rewarding flavor. Initial sweet vanilla oak notes gradually develop into rich spices and dried fruits (apricots, figs, dates). In addition to the Balveine Madeira cask we will also be tasting the full range of Balvenie Single Malt Scotches, which will include, the Balveinie 12yr double wood, 15yr single barrel, 2009 17yr rum cask, and the 21yr port wood.
In addition to tasting the Balveine, we will be tasting the full range of Glenfiddich, including the newest special release, Glenfiddich Distillery Edition.
Matured in American and European oak casks, including Oloroso sherry casks, which add to its truly exceptional and distinct character, Glenfiddich 'Distillery Edition' boasts a deep, golden barley color. Its delicate floral aroma is punctuated with hints of freshly ground black pepper and vanilla. Creamily smooth on the palate, these floral and spicy black pepper notes gently mingle with luscious fruit and a hint of sherry wood, lazily lingering to a sweet and warm, velvety finish. In addition to the Glenfiddich Distillery Edition, we will also be tasting the full range of Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotches, which will include, Glenfiddich 12yr, 15yr French oak reserve, 18yr, 21yr archive, and completing with the very rare 30yr.
The cigar sponsor for this event will be La Aurora. They have been pioneering cigars in the Dominican Republic for over 100 years. Producing cigars such as the Preferidos, where they age the filler and binder leaves in old rum casks, to give the cigar a new level of depth and complexity. We specifically chose La Aurora Cigars to complement the full spectrum of flavors these Scotches will deliver.
Quasi-exciting. The Glenfiddich 30yo looks interesting... but will it be there????
Not sure if I will be available, but if I am I will go to this.
