As a tiny extra to my column from the other day where I advised that Glengoyne are having an online tasting tonight for World Whisky Day (8p.m. GMT) with the two Gordons – Dundas and Dallas), I have word today from Bunnahabhain that they are doing the same but different person hosting, obviously. Fortunately it’s 1 hour later than Glengoyne so you could spend your entire evening doing this stuff! The key part of their release says:
“Join us live on our Facebook page for a masterclass on Friday the 27th March from 9pm GMT with our host, Derek Scott, Bunnahabhain Brand Director. He’ll be tasting our 12 year old and 25 year old, but you’re more than welcome to join with your own favourite dram.
He’ll be answering your questions on the night, but if you’d like to send something to us before, we invite you to do so via our Facebook page. We’ll put everyone who asks a question into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will receive a bottle of Bunnahabhain 25 year old (T&Cs apply), so get your thinking cap on!”
That sounds like a good enough reason to me to join in but it will be interesting to watch and listen even without the competition.
Back with some more words in 10 days or so.
