June has almost passed, and with it two excellent new Whisky Squad themes. If you missed the Mini Whisky Dinner, bad luck. If you haven’t yet grabbed a ticket to our very first Canadian Whisky Tasting on the 19th June, head on over to the event page and snap up one of the last few tickets.
In July we have decided to revisit two perennial favourite session themes: we kick off the month with a peat-fest in St James, followed up with a visit to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society in Farringdon. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of cracking new drams to taste! Here’s the skinny on the sessions:
Whisky Squad #89 – Bringing Back The Smokestack
It’s been a good long while since we’ve dedicated a whole session to those tasty peaty drams, so Joel is setting out to rectify this ASAP. There have been a whole raft of new smoky whiskies released recently, and not all of them from distilleries you might expect. Peat freaks – get in quick for this one!
Whisky Squad #90 – It’s All In The DNA?
It’s time for a trip back to our favourite Whisky Society in Farringdon for some science. Very rough science that is. SMWS Ambassador, John McCheyne, will pair up mystery drams from the same distillery to see if we can uncover some whisky DNA.
Bookings for these two sessions open at 1pm on Friday, 20th June.
All are welcome at Whisky Squad tastings – there’s no membership requirement: the only thing we hope for is that you’re interested in learning/talking about whisky.
