Burns Night Single Malt Whisky Tasting with Haggis

Single malt whisky is the most diverse and fascinating of all the spirits, and comes in a whole range of styles and ages. If you thought that Scotch whisky is all about the big names like Bells, Johnny Walker and Teachers then think again! The real quality and interest in whisky comes in the form of single malts which all have their own individiual character.

The making of whisky is a multi stage process and I will explain each step of how it is made, and also the factors which determine why they differ so much in taste. The tasting will feature whiskies from all of the main regions in Scotland - Lowland, Speyside, Highland, Islands and Islay (and possibly Campbeltown) - so you should find a style to suit your palate. I am still finalising the line-up but here is the shortlist (subject to confirmation):

Glenkinchie Distillers Edition 1999, Lowland

Aberlour 16 Year Old, Speyside

Longmorn 16 Year Old, Speyside

Clynelish 14 Year Old, Highland

Jura 16 Year Old, Jura

Highland Park 12 Year Old, Orkney

Bowmore 15 Year Old, Islay

Mystery Whisky??

These whiskies all have long ageing pedigrees and many are special bottlings compared to the standard distillery offerings. There will be 7 or 8 high quality single malts from Scotland which all cost between £30 and £50 a bottle, and also a mystery whisky from another country.

I will buy lots of haggis (including some vegetarian haggis on demand), tatties and neeps, so there will be plenty of food to soak up the alcohol.  Burns Night is actually the night of this event so you will have the rest of the weekend to recover!

If anyone has some suitable Scottish CD's then bring them along. Wear a kilt if you like. Above all let's make this a really fun event. Numbers will be limited to 18 people and the cost is only £35 per head. The nearest tube is North Acton on the Central line. Please do not under any circumstances drive to this event!

Cheers,

Christos
