Highlights from Whisky Jewbilee

 


The Second Annual Whiskey Jewbilee was held last week at Zanger Hall in Manhattan. I was able to get through about 70 of the almost 200 Scotches, Bourbons, Liquors and Spirits before my palate and lips started to complain. I was selective bypassing many things of which I was already most familiar with a few baseline selections. When finished I did need to yet navigate my way to the Trenton train at Penn Station. I should mention that it would appear I have been blessed with an early warning physiology that prior to significant impairment of cognitive function and coordination from ethanol my lips begin to become numb.

The food was substantial and spirits appropriate including some pretty good herring. Seventeen of the most memorable samplings follow:

1. Ardbeg - Ulgeadail Scotch, 9+, $75
2. Ardbeg - Corryvreckan Scotch, 9+, $95
3. Angels Envy - Kosher port (Kedem) finished bourbon, 9, $50
4. Angels Envy – Caribbean rum cask finished rye, 9, $70
5. Auchentoshen – Valinch cask strength scotch, 9, $68
6. Auchentoshen - Virgin wood scotch, 9, $100
7. Balviene - 17 year double wood scotch, 9, $110
8. Ben Raich – Rum cask scotch, 9, $40
9. Ben Raich – 20 year scotch, 9, $ 140
10. Elijah Craig – 21 year single barrel bourbon, 9, $200
11. Few – bourbon, 9, $95
12. Four Roses - single barrel bourbon, 9, $40
13. Highland Park - 24 year scotch, 9+, $150
14. Highland Park – Loki 15 year scotch, 9+, $200
