What’s on in March?

The word of this evening is: Grain

On Wed 27 March, Bert Bruyneel (Asta Morris) and Mark Watt (Cadenhead’s) will be guiding you through 5 special grain whiskies. Grain whiskies are essential to the creation of Scottish blended whiskies, the backbone of the whisky industry. The majority still goes into the blends, but some independent bottlers have been bottling some exceptional grain whiskies. A great opportunity to explore something different at this whisky tasting!

Cost: HK$ 350 per person

Happy Anniversary Whiskies & More!

 

We all know that time flies when you are having fun and it is no different at Whiskies & More. The past year was filled with fun and hard work, with tears and laughter, with trial and error, with new and old friends.

To celebrate this little milestone, Whiskies & More has selected a whisky for its first year anniversary:

Asta Morris – Glentauchers 8 Years – 52.5%
Only 90 bottles available in Hong Kong

“Mirror mirror on the wall…” – 30th June 2017

After a couple of tastings and some barhopping, Mr. Asta Morris was ready for his last tasting in town. Correction: his last tasting of this visit to Hong Kong! At the cosy Music Room at Potato Head, the new releases of Asta Morris were lined up for our guests to taste.

The Safari Series

  • Aultmore 2006/2016 – Scotch Single Malt
  • Benrinnes 2006/2017 – Scotch Single Malt
  • Girvan 2006/2017 – Scotch Single Grain
  • Glenburgie 1999/2017 – Scotch Single Malt

At Whiskies & More, we always want to bring something special to our guests. For this tasting, Bert was kind enough to bring one of his first few bottlings as the mystery dram of the evening. During the tasting, everybody was guessing what the mystery dram could be. Scotch and Speyside region was pretty clear, however, it was not easy to guess the distillery, the year and the abv!

All the guests had a lot of fun guessing and in the end the Mirror on the wall revealed the mystery: a Dailuaine 1983, bottled in 2011 at 50%.

Can’t wait for the next tasting with Mr. Asta Morris.
