We would then taste them all and rate them and then try to guess what they were. It was alot of fun and getting even a couple right was always nice. We would go for themes like sherried or peaty so it was a little trickier. It was neat to see what won and what didn't after we added up everyones favorites. The key part there was making sure we didn't mix up the glasses because the bartender kept track of which was which for us.
I don't have many bars with that much selection here but it would be fun to try again, who knows maybe in a couple weeks in Victoria.
Can you tell me what bar that was?
It is called Clancy's in the town Tilburg it is down the street that the Mercure hotel is across from.
The actual whisky bar is called The Three Swallows if you stop in ask for Frank he is the owner, very knowledgeble, and tell him Len from the US sais hello.
Len, thanks very much!
