For Whisky Squad #7 we welcomed Rob, from top wine’n’spirits merchant Berry Bros and Rudd, who led a tasting to match all tastings. Check out my write-up on Good Drinks Etc here.
WS#8 will take place upstairs at The Gunmakers on Thursday November 4, when we’ll be sampling some of the special whiskies bottled in aid of Whisky 4 Movember. Stayed tuned for details.
PS: Billy managed to coalesce the vapours of recollection into a blog post about Whisky Squad #7 over on Billy’s Booze Blog as well, in case you’d like a read!
Yeh, I know we haven’t even done WS#5 yet (fully booked for Thursday August 5) – but we wanted to give Squaddies advance notice of the next fixture so calendars can be cleared in anticipation. WS#6: Brilliant Blends is scheduled to take place on Thursday September 9 (that’s the second, not the first, Thursday of the month). Amend your diaries accordingly, and watch out for further details soon.
For our 5th session we will be joined by a guest tasting expert in the form of UK Whisky Ambassador Mr Colin Dunn, who will be giving us introductions to some fine whiskies for the summer season. It promises to be yet another excellent evening of whisky, and one not to be missed.
The date is Thursday August 5 starting at 19:30 upstairs at The Gunmakers pub. Entry is £15 per person.
UPDATE: This event is now fully booked, but keep checking here in case further places become available.
