Private Corporate Whisky Tasting Experience!

A Very Special Whisky Tasting in Sheffield

I hosted a very special whisky tasting at the Tankersley Manor Hotel and Spa near Sheffield at the weekend. This booking was one of those that was postponed due to Covid 19. It was lovely to be asked to host the whisky tasting as it is the third that I have hosted for this company already. It is nice to know that they enjoy my tastings so much!

Whisky Dinner

My customer had invited their guests from all around the world to attend a multi day training session, I had been asked to host the whisky tasting at their dinner on the last night of the course. I served two of the whiskies with dessert and with the cheese boards. I decided to serve Auchentoshan 12 year old Lowland single malt whisky from the banks of the river Clyde in Glasgow. There was a lovely selection of cheeses on the table and I recommended that guests enjoy the lovely sherry matured Bunnahabhain 12 year old single malt whisky from the North East shores of the Isle of Islay in the Southern Hebrides where I spent a number of years living and working.

The Whisky

After the Auchentoshan 12 year old single malt whisky and the Bunnahabhain we tasted another 4 whiskies.

I regularly show Talisker 10 year old single malt whisky from the Isle of Skye. I love to give my guests Talisker to try as to me it is one of the best whiskies from Scotland for portraying it’s provenance, placeless and for speaking about terroir. I was lucky enough to live on the Isle of Skye for a while and even just the nose of Talisker reminds me of walking back from the pub in Portree on a Saturday night and experiencing the smell of peat reek coming from the croft kitchens.

Following Talisker I served Caol Ila 12 year old single malt whisky from the Isle of Islay. Caol Ila was the first whisky that when I tasted it didn’t simply taste of whisky. It wasn’t until I tasted Caol Ila in the old Earl Grey Inn on the Ashbourne Road in my home town of Leek in Staffordshire that my whisky journey really began. I loved Caol Ila so much that I started to visit the Isle of Islay regularly. Cutting a very long story short I then became the Distillery Manager at Caol Ila Distillery, making the equivalent of 18 million bottles of my favourite whisky every year. Some journey for a whisky enthusiast!

Following the Caol Ila I then served a new edition from Ardbeg Distillery on Islay, the fantastic Ardbeg Wee Beastie, a full bodied and heavily peated single malt whisky. The tasting concluded with one of my own single cask single malt whiskies, a Fraoch Mòinteach single cask single malt whisky distilled in 2003 at Bunnahabhain Distillery and bottled at the cask strength of 53.5% abv.

Our competitors hosting whisky tastings in Nottingham are brand ambassadors or sales representatives and whilst their events are engaging, they cannot offer the authenticity that we do, given our experience at the coal face of whisky production.
