For each of the past 17 years, this event has included single malts that are rare, exclusive, non-commercial, but always delicious and noteworthy. This year will be no exception. Several of the stars of the five-whisky line-up include Macallan Gran Reserva 1979, Mackinlay’s Rare Old Highland Malt (aka “the Shackelton Whisky”), and Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix. Google each of these to learn of their extraordinary stories. Filet mignon, grilled sea bass, and other delectable finger foods will be served. Entertainment will be the ever-popular Vox Nobili – noble voices – singing traditional and ancient Christmas songs. Gorgeous voices and gorgeous Elizabethan costumes. Full details under “What’s New” at www.whiskytastings.com.
Other whiskies to be served are a Speyside whisky from a “silent still” (no longer in operation), and Highland Park 25.
