Virtual Tastings – March 2022

March rapidly approaches and with it a pair of excellent virtual tastings – a deep dive into the world of fortified wine with our tame MW, and some very sought-after whiskies from the Macallan…

March’s Line-up

Fortified wine

10 March 2022, 7-8.30pm – Discover Fortified Wine with Dawn Davies MW: We love fortified wine at The Whisky Exchange, but always get a lot of questions about the different types and styles. In this tasting Master of Wine and head buyer Dawn Davies will dive into the category with a pair each of  Ports, sherries and Madeiras.

17 March 2022, 7-8.30pm – New Irish Distilleries with Billy Abbott: Ireland’s whiskey business is booming, going from just three distilleries in the country at the turn of the millennium to more than 50 either up and running or in development. I’ll be digging into three of the best-known of the new wave and tasting some of their whiskies: Waterford Organic Gaia 1.1 and Sheestown 1.2, Drumshanbo Pot Still, and Teeling Single Pot Still and Blackpitts Peated Single Malt.

Macallan Editions

31 March 2022, 7-8.30 pm The Macallan Edition Series with David Sinclair: I’ll be joining Macallan brand ambassador David Sinclair for a taste through one of the distillery’s most sought-after recent ranges: The Editions. Each release digs into a different aspect of whisky making, showing off what the Macallan team can do. All six have flown off the shelves and this is a rare chance to try them all.

What’s next?

It’s all going on the events front, with recent announcements giving us hope that we should be able to start running in-person tastings again sometime soon. In the meantime, we’re still putting together plans for April and beyond.

This week also sees Whisky Show: Old & Rare landing on Facebook. All of the tasting packs have now sold out, apart from the last couple for the Longmorn tasting, but even without the whiskies, you can still watch the classes for free on Facebook. You can find the schedule on the Virtual Whisky Show website.
