W is for…

W is definitely for W Club – The Whisky Shop’s new membership club that gives you access to limited release bottlings, great competitions and some exclusive in-store whisky!  We popped along to see Craig, manager of Birmingham’s Whisky Shop to try some of the new bottles he had.  The focus of our mission this time was a new bottle out by Glen Garioch which was bottled excessively for the Whisky Shop!  There are only 187 bottles of the Glen Garioch 1978 and as it retails at a shade under £400 this was probably going to be our only experience of it.  Our thoughts are here:

World Whisky Day Tasting

World Whisky Day [27.03.12]

Well it was a mad rush; leaving work at 16:00, driving the 28 miles back to Birmingham, quick change, pick whisky up, train to town, Mac Donalds perfect pre-taste meal?) and at the Whisky Shop by 18:00 just in time for our first event! We’d organised this tasting with Craig, manager of Birmingham’s Whisky Shop, around the concept of trying whisky blind. Each guest would bring a bottle of whisky, hide the label and then allow each person to try while we pontificated as to what delights we were tasting! So what did we have? Unfortunately Mike was otherwise occupied so it was left to me (Jon) to hold the fort for LivingRoom Whisky.
