Past Tastings

Past Tastings

Postby Ganga » Mon Mar 17, 2008 5:53 pm

I thought it would be nice to have a place where we could track the past tasting events. I know there were a couple of semi-formal tastings in October 2007 but for the most part they seemed to be a "what you have in your collection" tasting.

October 2007 - Taliskers (Musky hosted event)
November 2007 - Glenlivet with special guest Ian Logan
December 2007 - Laphroaig
February 2008 - Highland Park
March 2008 - Balvenie

Thanks Ganga! That's really helpful when voting for the upcoming months tastings. Especially for those of us who are just recently starting to take part in them. :D

Smart thinking Ganga, maybe to add the previous ones in Live Forum category or something?

Actually there was one earlier one (September 2007?) that I hosted and participated in...alone. I had sent out PMs but only gave a couple of hours notice so sat staring at the screen myself, keyboarding and drinking. Pretty much what normally seems to happen when I'm left to my own devices. After that Chrisitan and I drummed up a longer lead time and it worked.

I should like to give credit to the Irish whisky group for the initial idea of live tastings as it was first proposed on one of the threads but wasn't followed up until we "took the Bull by the horns". Ganga has now taken up the cause and I have nothing but praise for he, Mikey and Matt for how the tastings have proceeded.

Ganga, I'm impressed with your efficiency in updating the list of 'past' tastings - but surely the Mortlach one is not yet in the past - I do look forward to it

I am still pretty surprised that this has been promoted to the top, permanently. I don't believe this covers ALL tastings run on WM, so now I'm looking for more to have the same treatment. Like my "Whisky for one..."
