Taste of Dublin Festival

Postby DavidH » Thu Jun 12, 2008 11:56 pm

I was at the Taste of Dublin Festival today. I didn't expect much in the way of whiskeys but I was completely wrong on that score and I fairly staggered out after all the samples of wine, whiskey, beer, liqueurs, etc.

Stands included: Cooley, Hot Irishman, Celtic Whiskey Shop, Coole Swan, Irish Mist, Mitchell & Son (Green Spot). I've written up more on a posting on my blog. The festival runs for a few more days.

I'm afraid Taste of Dublin makes me think of kidneys rather than whisky, but I guess I'm a bit too fond of Ulysses.

Whatever you're into :D Now would be the right time to indulge.

Mr. Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and
fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast
heart, liver slices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencod's roes. Most
of all he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a
fine tang of faintly scented urine.

Perhaps someone can recommend a whiskey with a urine-like nose to match the food?

Hi David,
Thank you so much for writing the report on the Taste of Dublin Festival. The whiskey selection seems to have pleasantly caught enthusiasts off guard. It looks like a fantastic event.

I also appreciated that you asked John Teeling, ED of Cooley's, about the rationale behind the exclusive release of the Greenore 10 yo to Canada. That was quite informative. It is a good thing that the LCBO didn't realize how exclusive the product was to the Canadian market, oresle, I might have seen a different price tag on that bottling!

Take care,
Wendy
