Yes, great idea, I've thought about it! Set up a tasting of whisky that are easy to come by, available to most of us. Or have it be open, with guests wanting to join input what they wanna taste hoping others have the same whiskies to taste, thus a discussion to take place. Or maybe it's just easier said than done? Or maybe what we're doing already around here is a form or virtual tasting, at our own pace, less organized, drinking at our own pace. Not bad at all!
Doesn't Spirit of Islay (Gordon) do a Wednesday thing on his site, I'm sure he and his guests are sipping and tasting? I haven't joined in yet, but have been planning too. Just I'm rarely off Wednesday nights.
