Bowmore Ballin' So Hard - 161 Years of Islay Malt with James Neil

  • December 12, 2023
  • 7 PM
  • $225.00

It is time to wake up and smell the peated lavender perfume! We've got a soft spot for Bowmore at KWM, but the big man (ATF) is especially fond of it, so we jumped at the chance to collaborate with James Neil, Bowmore's Canadian Brand Ambassador. We'll kick things off with the Bowmore 15 and 18, before comparing Aston Martin Editions 2 and 3. And then we start tacking on some age with the Bowmore 25 Year, Timeless 29 Year, and the 2022 Edition of the 30 Year. All in all, it is 161 years of malts from Islay's oldest distillery. Can you think of something better to do on a Tuesday night in December?

Contrasting Benromach: One Distillery So Many Styles!

  • December 14, 2023
  • 7 PM
  • $30.00

Benromach has been absolutely killing it in recent years and is fast becoming one of Scotchland's most interesting and compelling distilleries. Only a month on from launching our Benromach 2002 KWM Cask, and we have 5 new expressions of Benromach, just begging to be featured in a tasting. This tasting is built around the Benromach Contrasts Range, and we will be doing a lot of Contrasting... Firstly, we'll pit the Benromach 10 Year against the Benromach Cask Strength 2013 Batch 1. Then we will put the Benromach Contrasts Air Dried Oak 2012 vs. the Contrasts Kiln Dried Oak 2012. To finish we will be all about peat, facing off the Benromach Contrasts Peat Smoke against the Peat Smoke Bourbon 2014 and Peat Smoke Sherry 2014. 7 Unique Benromachs... one night only!

Sherry Bombs & Other Dark Drams - Mostly Edradour & Signatory

  • December 19, 2023
  • 7 PM
  • $65.00

This started as a way to showcase our Arran, Amrut, and Kavalan KWM Casks, but then we decided to go in a completely different direction... We have half a dozen Signatory and Edradour bottlings we were really on sampling. And there is a Speymalt Macallan from G&M just sitting all lonesome in Andrew's office, begging to be tasted side by side with a sibling. So that's how we found ourselves here! Our lineup is: Edradour 11 Year Sauternes, Edradour 12 Year Barbaresco, Edradour 21 Year Oloroso, Ballechin 19 Year Manzanilla, Signatory Orkney 18 Year, Signatory Speyside (M) 18 Year, and G&M Speymalt Macallan 2001. It's going to be a good one!
