January – Whisky Maturation

Buy My Tickets NOW!

Date: Thursday January 24th 2019 @ 7.30pm

Host: Jon Webb – @dvdbloke

Theme: Whisky Maturation

Location: Upstairs Function Room @ The Volley Pub, King Street

Tickets: AVAILABLE NOW – Eventbrite

Notes: When we talked about holding a session about maturity, we were unanimous in knowing exactly who we wanted to present the session. Sadly they weren’t available, so instead we have Jon Webb – @dvdbloke, who is infamous for his long standing Whisky and Science Fiction blog –  http://scotchandscifi.co.uk

He will be hand selecting seven whiskies from his vast whisky collection to help us explore the subject of maturation. As is standard for our tasting sessions, all the whiskies will be tasted blind, so that we can experience the spirit unhindered by preconception and personal bias. Through tasting the whiskies we will be exploring the effect of cask type, age of the whisky and initial spirit character.

This promises to be a great session, so pick up your tickets ASAP.

For those of you that don’t know, Speyside is a relatively small area of North East Scotland located around the River Spey in Moray, Badenoch and Strathspey. Despite it’s diminutive size, it is home to over half of all the distilleries in Scotland. It is famed for creating a specific style of whiskies, which are light and grassy or sweet and rich depending on the cask type that they are finished in.
