This past month was by far my most hectic period in quite some time. Whisky November was truly special, and I will be writing about each event between now and the New Year.
I hosted two whisky classes at our Flagship liquor store in Downtown Halifax, a whisky dinner in Tantallon, a special presentation of six Tomatin malts to the whisky club and numerous sampling events at many NSLC stores.
Thanks to all involved for your amazing support.
While I arrange all my notes from these events to appear in my posts, I would like to recommend a single malt whisky for the holidays. I do spend time analysing world prices on single malts and there are some great deals. However, there are also many that are simply well overpriced!
Tomatin 12 year old is great value for such an outstanding single malt. I suggest you buy two bottles for over the holidays. One to keep for yourself while enjoying all those old movies and nibbling on a bounty bar. You can’t beat a coconut and chocolate pairing with this malt! One bottle for guests that like a wee dram and will be impressed you have a malt that tastes expensive.
You should taste coconut, vanilla and toffee initially, with notes of Christmas cake, dried fruits coming into play and more fruits and a touch of spice on the finish.
I will be writing much more on this fine distillery in my upcoming posts.
