Gaelic fun!

 

I saw a new video released on Youtube today with an American and Scottish gentleman going through a list of distilleries and trying to pronounce them correctly or at least get close. This got me thinking about some other videos and and websites that try to help us sound like we know what we are doing when ordering or talking to others about Scotch.

Check out the following links and a few videos for some fun and maybe learn a new tongue twister.

There are a bunch of videos in this series, one distillery at a time.

 

 

 

It doesn’t just apply to Whisky, don’t use it to name your daughter as well.

 

 

Go ahead and look for some more…lol

May 18th Bourbon Tasting.

It will be hard to beat our last meeting but I am more than willing to give it a try. This month we will be tasting 5 bourbons pictured below. The meeting will take place at 7pm at our usual meeting place, 197 Buckingham Ave in the Buckingham apartment building, park near the back and use main entrance on the side facing the Gas bar not the end. Cost is $25 payable at the door.

The five Bourbons we will be tasting are Mitchters Small Batch, Jim Beam Devil’s Cut and Knob Creek Small Batch which are available in New Brunskwick most of the time. The other two Tin Cup and Wigle which are considered by some to be “craft” whiskies and not available here yet or may never be.

Hope to see you there, please let me know you will be attending either by email at riverviewwhisky@gmail.com or on our face book page, linked on the side.

 

Thanks, Ken
