Whisky Tasting in Quebec City a Huge Success

Whisky Tasting in Quebec City a Huge Success

At The Morrin Centre, in Old Quebec, on Friday 10th September 2010, whisky lovers new and old were treated to an evening discussing the finer points of some excellent whiskies up for tasting.

The event, part of the Quebec City Celtic Festival, was expertly led by Patrick Bourassa from Club Whisky Québec. Those present were taught how to tell the difference between a good whisky and a great one.

We were also given a crash course on tasting notes and how to savour every last drop.

For the extremely reasonable investment of $30, we were given 6 whiskies to try including an Auchtantoshan 21 and a Glenrothes. Delightful.

In this photo you can see Taylor Ireland from Les Ateliers de Conversation Anglaise and Simon Jacobs from the Morrin Centre clearly enjoying their evening.

Quite why the guy in the background was tucking into a slice of baguette and not imbibing what we all really went for is anyone’s guess.




The source of the evening’s merriment.
