Default Whisky galore !

Last week, I Went to Dubai Marina Yacht Club for a malt whisky presentation and tasting evening sponsored by MMI A&E and Barracuda. First hour was free up-market wines. The slide show was good, the six malts tasted great, and there was a lot of camaraderie. 1 st prize was a 1,500 Dhs bottle of a new Glenmorangie, the winner shared it with the 30 guests present. Spugsy would have loved that one !

Free food was also supplied including prawns, foie gras etc. Must have consumed at least 1,000 Dhs of booze and food all for free. A great evening...ended playing pool with a few of the guys and girls present.

The next one will be held at The Address and will be on gin. What was a surprise to me was that nearly all the gin in the UK is made in Scotland (Gordons, Tanquray, McKendricks etc)...only Beafeater gin was made in London.

Ask at MMI, A&E or Barracuda about these frequent events throughout the year.

OK..I thinks that's after the gin one. I'm not going to the gin one...don't want to be like my grandmother ! Though, I must admit, during the summer months in England I quite like a G&T - refreshing !

Nah...it was a Glenmorangie - 20 yr old (I think) and they are only releasing 1,000 bottles a year to airports ! One of the malt tastings was a McCallan though. There will be another malt whisky tasting next year.

This was a gift to me from a Casino- They said it's worth $5000-$8000..It's rare or a very limited edition. I could barely get it down without wretching. I'm filling it back up and selling it on EBAY because nobody would no the difference
