What’s better than a glass of sweet, toffee-colored, barrel aged scotch, bourbon or whisky? How about 150 of them?
On October 17, WHISKY LIVE LOS ANGELES 2012 returns for its fourth year. Held at the Hyatt Regency in Century City, there will be a full spectrum of spirits originating from Scotland to Kentucky. In addition to classic and traditional bottlings, guests will also get to try new recipes, unusual finishes, and rare, hard-to-find spirit. Producers, distillers and independent bottlers will be on hand to answer questions while pouring their product. Interested in the experiential more than the educational? Maybe the selection of artisanal foods, cheese and chocolate pairings, fine cigars and live jazz will whet your whistle.
Hailed as a “worldwide connoisseur event,” the LA tasting comes after stops in Chicago, San Francisco and Boston, and before landing in Madrid, Capetown, and Moscow, among other international locations; and brings with it experts from across the globe to lead guided Masterclasses for up to 75 people. Lectures will include flavor comparisons, pairings and an assortment of introductory classes, including presentations of new whiskies.
