Winter Tasting Night: Single Malt - Friday 2/28
- James Joyce, Dubliners
So, what actually goes into a bottle of Single Malt Scotch Whisky? Given the diversity of flavors, it's incredible that single malts are only made from three ingredients: barley, water and yeast.
It is through the craft and skill of the Master Distiller, and subtleties in the production process, that these different flavors are achieved.
Scotch Enthusiast Magnus Bergkvist will lead participants in an interactive tasting that will explore the world of whisky, and the flavors of three single malt whiskies.
The cost for the tasting is $20 cash or check payable to University Club Foundation. Seating is limited, so please RSVP at 518-463-1151 or by email to avoid disappointment. Participants are invited to stay for a la carte dinner after the tasting.
