It seems that the next week or so is going to be a bit of a whisky focused one here on my blog (“In what way is this different to usual?” I hear you ask). Part of the excuse I’m using for that is that it’s Burns Night in a couple of weeks time, but the real reasons are twofold:
- I seem to have a lot of whisky in the house
- I’m off to drink whisky elsewhere a bunch of times in the near future
- I’m running a whisky tasting next week
The tasting is to be held on Thursday January 20th at The Alma in Islington as part of their week long run up to Burns Night. I’m going to be running a group through 5 whiskies and talking my normal range of obsessive toot from about 7.30pm. Tickets are available at £15 a head from the pub, although as it’s ‘way over there’ you can drop them a mail or call to book. It’s a general beginner’s tasting so there will be some whisky to drink and discussion to be had. Let me know if you’re coming along so I can work out if I need to wear a disguise or not.
