Do you like bacon, barbecue, and smokey things? The liquor equivalent is most certainly scotch, and you can taste some of the finest tonight through Friday at The Brown Palace. First of all we love scotch, because it is a product from one of the oldest practices in modern distilling, and also due that it gave birth to bourbon indirectly through shit like the potato famine. Many of our ancestors hoped on a boat and soon ended up with heaps of corn. Which is a good thing. And with scotch, it’s not only the history that gets me really excited. Somehow those smoky notes remind me of my grandfather and his scent post-church, after socializing with the townies at the local bar. So even though I am not an avid drinker myself, the whisky holds a special place in my heart for what I would consider the original craft spirit.
There are 8, 90 minute sessions Wednesday 4/25 – Friday 4/27. Speaking from experience, these tastings are world class. From the rookie to the seasoned scotch drinker, it is an event for everyone (21+, of course) and not to be missed.
