“Whisky Blending Seminar” by The Whisky Jack (Event)

Tasting & Blending Seminar by The Whisky Jack (Malt Grain Scotch Vatting Event BarleyMania)

In a way, whisky blending is like alchemy. Cause just like the proto-scientists of yore, whisky blenders also create an elixir of life (“aqua vitae”), turn differing raw materials into gold (albeit in liquid form) and produce a universal solvent (if the blend is good, one sip is all it takes (more…)

“Day Of The 100 Open Bottles” at Pinkernell’s Whisky Market in Berlin (Event)

Day of the 100 Open Bottles at Pinkernell's Whisky Market in Berlin (Single Malt Scotch Bottling Tasting Event Claxton's Jack Wievers)

Every end is also a beginning. So when his contract with Cadenhead’s ended after 13 years, whisky vet Klaus Pinkernell looked forward rather than back. And not even half a year later, he opened a new store called Pinkernell’s Whisky Market in Berlin-Friedrichshain. (more…)

Beam Suntory Tasting with Auchentoshan, Glenrothes & Ardmore (Single Malt Scotch Whisky Event Lowlands Highlands Speyside Sherry)

In 2017, I took part in no less than five tastings and masterclasses at Christiansen’s Fine Drinks & Cocktails. Since I really enjoyed each and every one of these experiences, I came out of hibernation rather early this year to make sure I would not miss the afore-mentioned bar’s kick-off event (more…)

"Salt - Sugar - Smoke" Tasting by The Whisky Jack (Islands Maritime Single Malt Scotch Teaninich Isle of Jura Longrow Springbank Laphroaig Bruichladdich Octomore)

“I’m sorry, guys. But when you buy a bottle like this and keep it to yourself rather than share it with your friends, you’re a loser”, said The Whisky Jack’s Gearoid O’Callaghan last Thursday, when he popped the cork off the Octomore 08.1 (more…)
