Whisky Weekend

And it would have been in time for my anniversary…

Ah, well, perhaps I celebrate some other event. I’m talking about the Macallan Whisky Weekend – Friday 4th & Saturday 5th March 2005, of course. A little tasting event sponsored by the Macallan Distillery. Among other things, the event includes “a Macallan Masterclass with Bob Dalgarno, Whisky Maker at The Macallan and recent winner of “Industry Leader of the Year 2004″ at WhiskyFest in the U.S.”
But, that’s only the start… Of course, the event is in Scotland, but you also get 2 nights accommodation in a Classic bedroom; Full Scottish breakfast each morning; A three course dinner with the group, with wine, in The Terrace on Friday night; An insight into ‘The World of Whisky’ on Friday night including the opportunity to taste six different whiskies; A four course Gala Scottish dinner in a private room with the group, a different whisky will be included to accompany each course (or wine for those who would prefer), on Saturday night; and, most importantly, A bottle of The Macallan 12 years. Of course, it runs about $1300, for two, plus airfare, but it would have been worth it. Hmm, it’s only $900 for a single. Maybe it’s worth the deep, deep debt….

Well, not this time around. Maybe if they’re still doing it in a couple of years. It sure looks like fun, though, eh? (Aw, go on, you know you want to click on the Macallan link. It’s Friday, you deserve it!)
