Tasting the Last Drop!

Please join us at Martin's West in Redwood City a week from today on Tuesday September 7th for a very special event.  We will be tasting James Espey's Last Drop Whiskey, a 48 year old blend that defies what I thought was possible from whisky that old (see the post beneath this one about what exactly the Last Drop is).  Because we can only afford to purchase one bottle (they retail at $2000!) we will be limiting this to a strict 35 people only.  We will split the bottle evenly 35 ways and everyone can taste at their own speed.  The fee will be $50, which if you do the math is less than $2000 divided by 35, so you're getting a deal.  This is cheaper than if you were to buy the bottle yourself and split it with friends!  Please call Derek or Moira at Martin's West to reserve a spot - (650) 366-4366.  I know that we had 15 booked already as of 7 PM last night, so don't procrastinate!  See you there,

-David Driscoll

Any chance of you doing a repeat of this in LA?

I wish, but as of right now we can't find a place to taste. We need a restaurant that will let us order what we want and do the buying for us, since we can't bring in our own booze. Nice job on Hansell's blog the other day, by the way.

David, this is Andy from the LA Scotch Club. I believe we met at a Whisk(e)y Society event, but correct me if I'm wrong. There are plenty of places friendly to events like this and will let you bring in booze (with permission) I have a decent list. My first question would be to ask what the goal is for the event. I would have suggestions based on what your vision is.

Wrong David. I'm David NorCal. You've probably met David OG from the LA store. If you have some info for LA tastings, he'd love to hear it. Send him an email:
