Kappy’s Scotch Tasting

It’s All About the Scotch

On Sunday (April 28, 2013), one of the Grillaz went to Tony’s Winter Scotch Tasting at the Peabody Kappy’s.  The other one went to the emergency room to have a rusty nail extracted from his foot.  Unsurprisingly, Kappy’s was more fun than the hospital.

Glenmorange18_scotchBefore Grillaz gives you an overview of the Scotches we tasted at the event, let’s have a look at what followed us home:  Glenmorangie 18 Year Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.  This beverage has a rich, complex flavor and – in Grillaz style – is not too peaty.  It is pricy, but it is worth it as a occasional treat.

(Very smooth, very little sting for a cask strength, but it is a little sweet.)

(From Japan, so it is not a Scotch. A trifle bland.)
