Paired Tasting: Beauty and The Bane: Single Cask Whiskies
It's a common mistake in the whisky world that Single Malt whisky is not blended. In almost all cases it is still a blend, just blended from the same distillery. Single Barrel whisky is the only whisky that is not blended, and the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is the Rolls Royce of single barrel brokers.
With an average bottle run of less than 300 bottles for the entire world, the beauty and the bane of these exclusive whiskies is the flavours are unlike anything you get from the big distilleries, however once the bottle is finished you never get to taste it again.
Join Legacy Liquor Store Brand Manager Darryl Lamb to discover and sample six single barrel whiskies, carefully paired with plates by Whistler’s Chef Bruce Worden.
Classically trained and hailing from the Wine and Fruit belt of Ontario, Chef Worden has developed a whimsical approach over his 20+ years in the industry, using combinations of flavour that excite the palate and engage the mind.
