YVR - BRUICHLADDICH TASTING @ Notch 8 Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
What a treat this was!
On the evening of December 13th, we held our AGM at Notch 8 restaurant inside the historic Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, and afterwards sat down for a 3 course dinner and whisky tasting from Bruichladdich.
This wasn't just any ordinary tasting but rather an intimate affair with the opportunity to taste some really rare bottles of whisky. We had the privilege to have the tasting led by Reid, the Canadian Ambassador for Bruichladdich, who was able to share private details and stories about the brand and history of the distillery. To top it all off we went through 4 different glasses which included the Laddie 22, the Laddie Cuvee 640, Black Art 4 and Octomore 7.1! WOW, what a night! There were 15 of us in total and everyone had a different favourite but the tasting proved what a unique and innovative brand Bruichladdich is and what a true mastermind like Jim McEwan can create.
Here are some shots of the dinner and tasting as we thought it was just too good not to share!
Special thanks to the staff at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver & Notch 8 Restaurant for the space and also to the Bruichladdich team for the tasting and sponsorship of the dinner!
