My niece has to raise £4500 for an educational expedition to Peru with some classmates, see www.world-challenge.co.uk for details. With about £1000 to go I thought Uncle Mark could do a couple of tastings to help plug the gap.
The first one will be at Westhill golf club at 8pm on Friday 30th March, £15 - all proceeds to the cause. This tasting will be particularly suitable for novices/casual whisky drinkers: a blend, a grain, a single malt, a malt heavily influenced by the cask then a peaty malt. PM me for further details/tickets.
The next one will be aimed at the established enthusiast £25:-
Lochside 30yo 1981 - Oct. 2011 54.9% Bourbon hogshead 246 bottles Cadenheads
Girvan 1964 - 2011 48.8% Scott's Selection
Longrow 10yo Oct. 2001 - Nov. 2011 53.9% 611 bottles Springbank Society
Tomintoul 43yo 4.2.1968 - 19.01.2012 47.6% 172 bottles Whiskybroker
plus a mystery dram
As Cadenheads (I manage the Edinburgh shop) was originally an Aberdonian company and I spent my primary school years in the city I have wanted to do a tasting there for some time. Only trouble is I don't have a venue yet. Any suggestions? The first venue quoted £200 for room hire the next was booked out. I'm looking for somewhere central and cheap. Help.
