Glad we're all chatting...
So yeah, I work (sometimes) at The Whisky Exchange in Vinopolis
. I like my whisky and getting to talk about it all day is hardly "work".
To answer questions aout our communal whisky research:
The initial idea is to get a group committed to meeting, say 10 people, and we each throw some money, say a tenner, and we buy a few whiskies to try together, say 4.
Each bottle can serve 28 drams(we need not drink it all), so there is no question about getting our money's worth, and the more poeple we get involved over time, the more exciting and expensive the bottles we try can become!
In the past, I have held these tastings in various pubs, student unions, hotel board rooms, and in flats. To start, a flat might be best, but if you have any leads on pubs that would welcome us, go for it!
Also, I have dozens of tasting glasses so we wouldnt need a pub or flat to provide.
So lets try to find a venue, round up some nice people, chat in this forum, and try to get together over the next month.
