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.

THIS TASTING EVENT RESERVATIONS ARE FULL

Please join us for our next event, reserve early to avoid disappointment

 

The Four Different Whiskies From Two Distilleries Joined By A Wall

There is so many fun ways to bring Campbeltown to life, but enjoying the fruits of the labor of a dedicated group at the Springbank & Glengyle is the best! We have options like fully peated Longrow with 36 hours of smoke on the malts, or lightly peated over 6hours for Springbank itself, No smoke & extra distilled Hazelburn or from the youngest one next door, a dram of Kilkerran

 

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.

The pub tries to ensure that we have enough glasses on hand to allow our tasting guests to keep their samples throughout the event, and be able to compare and re-taste as they care to.  We remind guests that the alcohol served in the tasting is the equivalent of 3-3 regular cocktails over the 2 hours, of course we are happy to pick up any of the glasses that you do not care for too!

 


 

TUESDAY SEPT 1st  -       

 

EDRADOUR 

 The smallest commercial distillery* in Scotland, and one of our staff's favorite drams for guests who are jaded with their usual labels, and want a new taste of Single Malt Scotch!

   

Price: $35 + tax 

Save Me A Seat(s) Please

 

The Legend of Edradour is that only 3 people work there, and each takes a station if there is tour coming in, #1 becomes the Guide, #2 is in the gift shop and #3 pours in the Tasting room, after the bus pulls off everyone goes back to doing their bit to make Whisky. Best part of their expressions is the variety of styles of casks used to either Mature or Finish the whisky; Ex-Bourbon, Olorosso Sherry, Madeira, Super Tuscan, Barolo & Sauterne wine barrels

 

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.

* The asterisk is there so that if we have made a mistake and there is a smaller commercially available Single Malt Scotch we can apologize.....Be sure to tell us in person next time you stop in
