Peatin’ Meetin’ V

LA Scotch Club Celebrates With Laphroaig 40, bottle 1929

WhiskyFest Jumps the Shark – San Francisco

WhiskyFest Jumps the Shark – San Francisco

“Whiskyfest, San Francisco… we were lovers once.”  She made my heart palpitate.  The skies opened and the sun yada yada yada.  I remember years ago, dashing toward the best tables while trying to preserve a shred of dignity.  It was a Halloween for whisky geeks and there were so many more king-sized butterfingers than crappy ...

Cognac? Armagnac? But aren’t we all about Whisky?  Yes, but we also focus on learning, and an important part of knowing about whisky is knowing what distinguishes it from other fine spirits.  On May 25th the LA Scotch Club will travel down the Chunnel from Scotland to France to explore HIGH END Cognac and Armagnac… ...

There’s a little something happening in Las Vegas on March 2nd and 3rd that you should know about.  There won’t be chips, tokens, cards, humorless dealers, obnoxious lines, or bikini optional pools.  There will however be some world class whisky, and I don’t say that lightly, because I know world class whisky (I know it ...
