Youghal stands,
Beneath the Irish mountains still defiant,
Our little town

Is like a pigmy to a giant......

TASTING EVENTS AT

TRINITY HALL IRISH PUB

 


 

 

          Our Tuesday Tasting events consist of 6 sample pours of 3/4 oz each served with light snacks throughout the evening to accompany the spirit. Tastings will be led by either a brand level ambassador,  or one of our in-house team. Unless noted, there is generally plenty of seating & product available, and we'll save you a seat if you click the Save Me A Seat link and hit send!! We offer open seating arrangements, guests can gather at the tables of their choice, we will greet & confirm that you intend to be a part of, or are accompanying someone doing the tasting, servers will check with you throughout the evening and can arrange additional food, or other drinks. We'll present your check and arrange payment with you at the end of the evening.

 

          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.

One of the highlights of our trip to Scotland was a last minute stop in on the way down from the Highlands at the smallest Distillery in Scotland (*Commercially licensed) owned by the same man as Independent Bottler, Signatory Vintage. Andrew Symington began as hotel manager in Edinburgh, and then caught the Whisky bug, starting his business with a single cask of Glenlivet distilled in 1968. The rest as they say is a very entertaining history.  Why did it take us so long to host a tasting? Well due to the size of the distillery, (only 12 barrels a week) there is just not that much of it in the market in Texas, and most of what is available to buy is offered by Specs.

 

We'll be tasting through Edradour's 10 Year Standard, 10 Year Bourbon Cask & 13 Year Sauterne Cask and then their line called Ballechin,  Peated Whiskies finished in Wine Casks  - all distilled at Edradour - and then each in the series have been matured in Marsala, Bordeaux, Sauterne and Burgundy casks respectively.

OTHER THINGS TO COME.....

 

Besides these ones we are hoping to bring new and old friends back to the tasting program in the year ahead. If you have a line up, a distillery, or style tasting you'd like to see on our dance card, let us know! Drop me a line (CLICK HERE) and we'll get on it in the weeks ahead!

  •   BRUCIHLADDICH Another hard to find line , from Islay, with no local ambassadors and limited selection to offer, but we have found a couple of expressions that will be fun to share - probably a little higher priced event due to the costs, but well worth the tasting experience!

 

  •   The Arran Distillery Recently highlighted by one of our Tasting Guests, we'll be looking to see how many we can arrange together, and will fill in with another small independent to make it a fun night

 

  •  A.D. Rattray  Single cask independent bottling selections, offered at cask strength so we'll be pouring a little less and charging a little more than our usual tastings but a great opportunity to sample one of a kind casks curated by the Morrison family who previously oversaw the Auchentoshan, Balmore & Glen Garrioch  distilleries & brands.
