Well, what a week we’ve had at LivingRoomWhisky! Following a very successful evening with Craig, manager of Birmingham’s Whisky Store for our World Whisky Day Tasting, we were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in the Highland Park Tweet Tasting on Wednesday 28th March. These fantastic online tasting events are organised by Steve Rush of The Whisky Wire, be sure to follow him on Twitter if you don’t already!
Twitter was buzzing with talk of the upcoming event and as other Tweet Tasters began to receive their packages the anticipation grew! Photos of the beautiful and highly regarded Highland Park range were floating around Twitter and we were itching to get ours! When our samples did arrive, we were not disappointed! All our whiskies had arrived in tact (for some poor souls, they had not), and as a little surprise bonus, Highland Park had also sent us all a lovely little tasting notes journal and a pin badge! Thank you Highland Park! Our amazing sets consisted of the 12, 15, 18, 25, 30 and Thor – we couldn’t believe it; we were going to taste the mighty Thor and the 30 Year Old which we’d had our eyes on for a while.
We compiled selected notes on our standout whiskies of the night, it was a tough choice narrowing them down, but narrow them we did to the 12, 18 and 30, and they can be found on our Whisky Reviews page here.
All that remains to be said is that it was a great evening of whisky, great to share it with friends across the globe and we can’t wait for the next one. Thanks Steve and Highland Park once again for a fabulous night of whisky.
