East Coast Whisky is happy to be teaming up with The Cheese Lady, Haddington, to present a spectacular evening of delicious cheeses and some fine whisky to go with them. This is the follow up to a fun live event we co-hosted a couple of years ago, only this time we will all meet online!!
The Whiskies (chosen with Cheese in mind!!)
Mortlach 17 from Hidden Spirits Italy. A delicious Mortlach from a couple of years back, the perfect way to start the evening.
Glenburgie 22 from The Single Malts of Scotland. This has just been released, and continues our exploration of lesser know Speysiders. It is deserving of the plaudits it has been gaining.
The Glenrothes 24, casked in ex-Zinfandel, brings the best of both worlds. I've been keeping this for such an evening.
GlenDronach 12. Bringing the sherry influence now, this is a perfect wee dram from a Pedro Ximenez Puncheon.
Tomatin Distillery Exclusive. Oloroso casked, this will blow your mind, especially when paired with cheese!!
Clynelish 9, SMWS 26.166. Lightly Peated Clynelish is a rare beast, and as this has also just been released, will not have featured in an online Whisky & Cheese tasting before!!!
BIG PEAT 25, Gold Edition, Douglas Laing. Islay Blended Malt Whisky, is a sumptuous way to see out such an evening as this!!
The Cheeses (chosen with these whiskies in mind!!)
You will have to attend to discover what these are. However you will taste 5 of them, and they will also come with accompaniments!
The evening will run from 7 - 9.30pm, on Thursday 20th May, on Zoom. This can be recorded if you can’t make that date. Svetlana will introduce the cheeses, and I will the whiskies. There will be time for community and chat too, particularly at the end.
The tasting costs £110 including p&p. For this you will receive a whisky dram box (7*20ml samples), and a lovely cheese box, these will each be sent to you separately.
The dram box will be sent first class, signed for, a week before the event. You will also receive some collated tastings notes and a Zoom link in the lead up to the event.
Any further questions, or to join the East Coast Whisky Chat WhatsApp group, please email me. Otherwise we look forward to seeing you all on Thursday 20th May.
