Next tasting is 31st March and will be the 4th World whisky night. If this doesn't pull in the crowds I'll probably abandon dedicated nights and slip the occassional curve ball into the regular tastings. This is a shame as finding quality from obscure sources is getting easier. It used to be the choice was more academic in interest than hedonistic but the list of decent foreign produced stock is growing alongside its convenient accessability. For what its worth this line up must easily be the best yet-
Hammerhead Czech single malt ~20yo
St. George English whisky rum finish
Rocky Mountain Rye
This tasting will be further down the Canongate at James's (from Waverly Buffet and ex of The Blue Blazer) new charge 'Jenny Ha's' as the new management at the Tollbooth give the place a bit of a spruce up. Tickets 0131 556 5864 Monday to Saturday 10.30 to 5.30. Check out www.jollytopertastings.co.uk for more details.
