TASTING WHISKEY  or Spirits

 

         Tasting is a little different than simply drinking. The goal of our tasting is to find elements that we like and dislike in an expression so we can communicate better with the retail specialists when we go out to buy bottles for the house!

 

  •     80% of taste sense comes from Nose & Olfactory

  •     Sniffing 40+% alcohol overwhelms the nose and stunts the olfactory reaction

  •     Naming a familiar flavor becomes easier if we verbalize the taste

  •     Many whiskies range of flavors improve when water is added

  •     Tasting with others reinforces friendships, expands our palette and is fun entertainment!

 What to expect at Trinity Hall Irish Pub's Tasting Night:-

 

    Seating sufficient for attendance expected will be set aside in the pub. Each place-setting will have Tasting notes and a large glass of water! Seating is open and guests seat themselves upon arrival. Closer to speakers or off to the side, it up to each party, and many of our regulars enjoy sitting with new guests and hearing their opinions as the tasting progresses.

 

      Our Tasting Night's Program begin with the 1st pour at 7:30PM, as it is open seating we suggest joining us between 7-7:15PM to find a seat or table you'll enjoy. Our snack items are similar to tapas in portion & style, designed to accompany the spirit, but not necessarily a full meal, some of our guests will join us early or sit with us after the tasting, and we'll present checks at the end of your visit so no pre-payment is required.

 


 TASTING WINE 

 

         We don't often have the occasion to bring a Winemaker to the Pub, but when we do the tastings are a lot of fun! The key difference between a tasting at the pub vs one at a wine bar, is that we are much less knowledgeable and so have far fewer inhibitions when speaking about what we taste! Key difference is the size of the pour, bigger with the lower alcohol wine than our usual whiskies, but similar format and #'s.

 


 

TASTING BEER 

 

         Our beer tastings will be more about learning from the brewmasters than just tasting, when we have an opportunity to invite the Asst Brewmaster or Head Brewer out to tell us about their brews we will enjoy 8 styles - usually 5-8 oz a piece - and a similar food program to match.

 


 

 

 


 

THURSDAY JULY 9th  -

        Compass Box .. The Line Up     7:30 PM

 

        This award winning blending house in Edinburgh started by John Glaser of USA, and their Ambassador Chad Wiltgen is in Texas and we've arranged for him to stop in and moderate a tasting! Chad has been in the business for over 15 years, worked for Suntory's Scotch brands - Morrison Bowmore Distillers - and recently took on the position of Director of Sales for Compass Box Whisky! One of things he really enjoys about Compass Box is their INNOVATION, and he says "No-one does it better than Mr. John Glaser"

 

 

We know you are hoping for some of the limited lines like The General or Quindecimus perhaps. But, special editions don't make it this far with this groups of this size. However, revisiting the standard lines will be a fun task! Asyla, Oak Cross, Spice Tree, Peat Monster, Hedonism and Orangerie with a cocktail to start made from Great King Street!

 

THIS EVENT IS FULLY RESERVED - PLEASE JOIN US FOR ANOTHER TASTING COMING SOON!

   

Price: $35 + tax Prepayment is not necessary

 

Open seating upon arrival,  we suggest joining us a little early to settle in and get comfy. Cubed Cheese with Crackers and breads, will be served to start, followed by 2 Tapas styled snacks served during the evening.
