Starting this coming Tuesday, we will begin a weekly tasting at Martin's West here in Redwood City. There will only be one whisk(e)y available per night, but it will be something new and exciting and, even better, we will sell it at cost - no mark up. What does that mean? It means that starting at 6 PM, you can come over and drink the new Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix with me for about $3 a pour. You get the standard 1.5 oz and not a little baby 1/4 oz tasting portion. There are no reservations and you cannot order seven shots for yourself all at once. I have no problem however with multiple pours so we'll keep filling your glass until we run out.
This is a great way to meet up, chat, taste new whiskies, and keep things affordable. If you're in the area, just come in and have a taste then you can be on your way. Or stay, have a burger, and chill out. It's up to you. I promise you that by this summer, Tuesday nights at Martin's West are going to be the biggest thing on the Peninsula for whisky fans.
I'll see you there.
