Went to Whisky and Alement as part of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival for a floral whisky tasting. I’m not going to count these 3 in my tasting for the year, as W&A was packed with flowers and it was quite difficult to smell just the whisky. That said what a lovely idea it was to really explore the floral nature of whisky.
The three whiskies for the afternoon were; Glenore 8, Old Pulteney 12 and a Singleton 12.
Surprisingly, I thought the combination of geranium and whisky was quite good.
Would be nice to see bars do more interesting tastings like this.
