These are great dinners in the old style of the Rat Pack days. If you’re inclined to go I really can’t recommend it enough.
Drink wisely my friends,
18 months ago the whiskey related events in the Atlanta area were few and far between. Oh how things change. I just got notes from two fine drinking establishments that they are both having whisk(e)y dinners…on the same night! Tuesday, September 28th you get to pick your poison. Four Roses or Glenfiddich? Each is only $40!

One night, two dinners. Decisions, decisions.
Drink wisely my friends,
I’m always trying to stay on top of the Atlanta whiskey scene (what little there is). I just heard about another scotch dinner taking place next week. This one is special because it is a Gordon and MacPhail event. Of the limited selection of single malt scotch we get in Atlanta, our access to independent bottlers is even more limited. That makes this dinner a truely special event.
The dinner is June 2nd at 6:30 PM located at the Toulouse Restaurant. $55 gets you in and here’s what the menu and pairings look like:
Fried Chicken Livers with Field Greens and Seared Apples
Benromach 10 year
Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with a spiced peanut sauce
Glen Grant 15 year
Grilled Salmon served medium rare, over Jasmine Rice and Braised Cabbage with a Balsamic Beurre Blanc
Sautéed Pork Loin with Apple-Caramel Sauce,Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Sautéed Squash
