"There once was a wee girl from Dallas, Who thought of fine pubs as a palace. The Smithwick's was lacey, the food very tasty, And the music would melt all her malice."

TRINITY HALL IRISH PUB
An opportunity to stretch your palette and experience new and exciting tastes & flavors! Generally speaking we taste whiskies & spirits, but watch out for special Beer, Wine & occasional food tastings like.. The Miracle Berry! Tastings are a little different than going on the tear for the evening, its more about capturing the small individual flavors, aromas & textures that combined create what we register as taste.
When we taste whiskey we are looking to get past the initial burst of alcohol fume that rises from the glass, and when sniffed directly causes a slight discomfort in the bridge of the nose, and sometimes a little eye watering... However, we breathe with mouth & nose, mixing air & spirit, roll this over the olfactory nerves to get that 80 % of flavor that we get from our nose, and then crack the whiskey with a little water to gather the last 20% of flavors.
Beers are easier on the nose, but require a little loosening to get the aromatics in the air so that you can smell and breathe the flavors. Best method of opening the beer to the air, pour a big foamy head and let the bubbles burst - each pop is more aroma tickling your olfactory!
We all have seen the fun of decanting wines, aerating and beginning the process of oxidation that eventually turns wine to something less pleasant. However, sometimes getting a wine to open fully can require a little help, either by using an aerator or bubbling funnel or swirling & splashing it about!
So, our Tuesday Tasting evenings are opportunities to try new expressions of things you may already have an interest in. Enjoying new wines, beers or whiskies side by side allows us to see the differences more clearly.
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.
~ DEC 10th Mezcal Tasting ~
After this nasty bout of weather, we wanted to do something that will warm us back up! And this tasting is not about worms either, Although we will taste a line with 2 worms instead of 1!) this is the kindler, gentler more refined spirit of the Agave, presented by Zignum Mezcal.
We have not focused on Mezcal before so we will try a range of new our market Mezcals produced by the largest Mezcal distillery located in Oaxaca. We'll start at the very beginning and learn about the variations between Green, Blue & Espadin Agave plants, the difference between roasting the pinas or grinding and shredding to capture the agave nectar and then the impact of barreling on the distillates. We'll learn the differences between Tequila & Mezcal - think Bordeaux & Burgundy - and why we are seeing much more Mezcal entering the market now, especially those where whiskey drinking is strong!
The line comprises three labels: El recuerdo de Oaxaca, El Senorio & Zignum, each offers finer distilling and brighter flavors
Our tastings consist of 6 sample pours of 3/4 oz each served with light snacks throughout the evening to accompany the spirit. This tasting will be led by the regional ambassador for the company Jose Carlos Contreras. Please click the link below to let us know you're coming, and we'll save you a seat! $25 per person, we present checks at the end of the evening.

~Nov 19th was TULLAMORE D.E.W. LAUNCHED PHOENIX 55%!
A special occasion indeed when Texas Ambassador Mossie brought out the newest marque from the re-establishing Tullamore D.E.W. branding here in America. As the #2 selling Irish Whiskey Brand in the world, it had been hidden under a bushel of brands until rescued by our friends William Grant & Sons. Now they are prepping their brand new distillery, opening in 2014, and planning for the next 100 years of growth we are sure!
Stop in and ask for any of Tullamore's 4 expressions, or better still call for the flight and get 1 of each!
