Next K&L Whisky Tasting! March 9th 2010 - Burlingame. Be There!
I'm very sensitive to the price attached to some of the events that we do. I know that $150 per person to attend a Burgundy or Bordeaux dinner, for me at least, is something that cannot be afforded more than once or twice a year - if ever. They tend to be four course meals at high-end restaurants where everything is very organized and everyone is forced to dine together at a communal table. They can be very fun, but I don't expect that everyone can attend each event. I don't want that to be the case for our whisky tastings. I want everyone to be able to afford to go every single time we have one and I want the whisky to be what people are paying for. That's why I'm offering the second tasting of 2010 for the bargain price of $50 - and that includes food! This won't be a full out dinner, but the snacks will be more substantial than the last tasting. We will be tasting with the boys from both Signatory and Gordon & MacPhail, see the details below, click on the link, and sign up ASAP as we are currently only offering 35 seats.

Join us at La Boheme restaurant on Burlingame Ave. in downtown Burlingame on Tuesday March 9th 2010 at 6 PM with representatives from both Signatory and Gordon & MacPhail - two of the leading independent whisky bottlers and owners of both Edradour and Benromach distilleries. Eight whiskies are on the list for that evening (but there are usually one or two more) as well as delicious snacks and small plates that will be served throughout the evening. Already confirmed for the list are aged expressions of: Edradour, Benromach, Laphroaig, Linkwood, Bladnoch, Caol Ila in a port cask, and the Isle of Skye. This is a fantastic opportunity not only to taste rarely available malts, but also to meet and talk with the proprietors about whisky making as well as the business of cask purchasing. I can't wait to go and I can't wait to see you all there. - David Driscoll
