Hello NJ Whiskey Circle! It's time to mark your calendars for
Saturday, October 13th!
NJ Whiskey Circle #5
Sherry Aged Scotch
Saturday, October 13th, 4pm
Do you have a Scottish sweet tooth?
For this flight, we'll be sampling Scotch that has been aged in casks that once held sherry. While this once was standard, today over most Scotch whisky is aged in ex-bourbon barrels, and the rich sweetness of the Spanish sherry oak will be a surprising contrast for those of us acclimated to Scotch finished in American oak.
For those who haven't had a chance to join yet, this is an informal tasting among friends and Mensans. I'll have some information prepared, and we'll hang out, sample, and chat. Afterwards we'll have a potluck and have another dram (or three) before heading home.
The cost is $50. Please RSVP no later than Monday, October 8th. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-238-2651 for details and directions. You can send money to paypal.me/NJWhiskeyCircle, or find me at the September or October CNJ Monthly Gatherings.
