Just got word of a Chieftain’s tasting at Martin’s West in Redwood City. Presented by the fine folks at K&L Wines, there will be seven whiskies poured including…get this, people…a 1976 Allt’ A ‘Bhainne 31 Year and a 1982 Port Ellen 25 Year. Indeed, this is the very same Port Ellen I was lucky enough to try at a Whisky Shop/Signatory event last month. The cost is $25, which would be worth it if they were only pouring the Port Ellen.
The Chieftain’s line of independent bottlings is a relatively new one here in the states, if the Port Ellen is any indication, the good folks at Impex Beverages are bringing us some great stuff and this will be a great opportunity to give a few of them a try.Chieftain’s Whisky Tasting Tuesday, July 13, 7:00pm $25 Martin’s West 831 Main Street Redwood City, CA 94063-1901 Call Moira to reserve a place, 650.366.4366 (call soon, only 35 spots available)
