    Whiskey

    Or is it Whisky

    Went to a whiskey tasting session today with my eldest...actually went last week as well by myself.

    @ Bunya Mountains, $25 for the session which included 3 half nips.......while being educated about whiskey. They have 120+ whiskeys on the shelf. The young fella is only new to running the session and to us uneducated we thought he did a good job.

    First time ever doing something like this and first time over really tried whiskey apart from the run of the mill blended whiskeys with mixers.

    100% enjoyed the experience..... hung around and tasted a few more after each session.

    Today we sampled 8 different whiskeys......end cost including two local pale ales was 110 bucks.....it was an enjoyable hour or so. We also worked out that we could share 1/2 nips to get the experience and make the dollar go a little further.

    The session last week had 16 and today there was just 6 off us sampling.

    I’m still a novice but at least a little more informed.

    The barman was happy to line up the one we tasted today.



    Wouldn’t mind this selection at home


    Example of the tasting paddles available anytime during the day....we have ‘the prestige’ a run @ 1/2 nips

    Did you wave at me today? I was driving a gecko with a couple of tippers.

    One thing I found out today was everybody’s taste buds are different......whilst some whiskeys have a big name/reputation and price tag this doesn’t mean everybody likes it.

    Whiskey

    Pfft....only twice distilled.

    I learnt today that the Irish are still the leaders in triple distilled and are starting to edge there way back into the market.

    Must've been someone else, in a twin cab. It was a targeted wave, but not my usual Star.

    I often wave with one or two fingers.
