Corporate tasting event recap

On January 22nd, 2015, I led a corporate tasting at a very exciting company in Boston's waterfront area. We had a great view, fantastic crowd, and some phenomenal whiskies - here they are:
  • Rusty Nail made with Glenmorangie 10 and Drambuie (1:1 mixture)
  • Glenmorangie 18
  • The Macallan 18
  • Glenfarclas 40
  • Laphroaig 18
I had to hold my brains in with each successive sip. These whiskies are absolutely fantastic. The Glenmorangie 18 is like the 10 but with fuller body and rounded edges, plus a hint of chocolate from the little bit of sherried malt in it. The Macallan 18 is luxurious with all the quintessential flavors a sherried whisky could ask for. Then there's the Glenfarclas 40. Holy moly. Just deep everything. And the Laphroaig is like a well-mannered version of the 10, with plenty of gentle cuddling after you're done.

Thanks to Jeff Fine from Atlas Liquors for providing them at a very good price, with delivery to boot!

Pouring samples!
