One month, one bar, three whiskey events. Mac McGee has a series of scotch events on tap in October for your drinking pleasure.
Ardbeg Galileo Release
October 6, 2012 at 8pm
Come down and enjoy the latest delicious release from the masters of peat Ardbeg. This limited edition 12 year old single malt whisky is a special celebration of the “world first” space maturation experiment.
Ardbeg Galileo is a special vatting of different styles of Ardbeg laid down in 1999, all married together to give a sweet, smoky texture. The heart of this limited edition Ardbeg is spirit matured in ex-Marsala wine casks from Sicily that is combined with hallmark Ardbeg matured in first and second fill ex-Bourbon casks. The ex-Marsala casks add fruity aromas and textures to Ardbeg’s famed peaty, smoky house style. We will have the privilege of tasting three whiskies with the Ardbeg Girls: Ardbeg 10 year old, Ardbeg Uigeadail, and Ardbeg Galileo all for $30.
Isle of Arran Tasting
October 10, 2012 at 7:30pm
Tonight we have the rare opportunity to taste with The Arran Malt Ambassador, who will walk us through these exquisitely balanced and savory malts. We will taste a few rare releases from this small island off the coast of Scotland beginning with The Arran 10 year old, The Arran 14 year old, The Arran Sauterns Cask, The Arran
Amarone Cask, The Arran Port Cask, and The Arran Machrie Moor all for $35.
Bunnahabhain Toiteach Release
October 16, 2012 at 7:30pm
Truly a unique release from our friends at Bunnahabhain, the Toiteach is Gaelic for “smoky.” This heavily peated style is an unusual mark form a distillery that is known for delicate fruity Islay whiskies. Bunnahabhain Ambassador Haley Cognata will be here to talk about the lore and flavors of this distinctive distillery, while tasting Bunnahabhain 12 year old, Bunnahabhain 18 year old, Bunnahabhain Toiteach, and Bunnahabhain 25 year old all for $35.
