TASTING EVENTS AT

TRINITY HALL IRISH PUB


 

 

          Our tastings 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.

        Lots of fun expressions have come along since our last tasting, so we'll plan an evening to review the current expressions. The most recent release here in Texas is Companta, (Scots Gaelic for friendship) part of which had been matured in traditional American white oak ex-bourbon barrels, then was transferred into casks having previously contained Grand Cru wine from Clos de Tart. Another part had been extra maturing in casks having previously contained a sweet fortified wine from Cotes du Rhone

 

Our tastings begin at 7:30PM we suggest joining us early to find a seat you like - it is open seating so you may prefer a table of your own or one to share with other whisky fans! 1st pour is served at 7:30PM and we follow that up with another 5 or 6 depending on the brand! In between we we serve 3 tapas size snacks along with cubed cheese to mitigate the alcohol consumed, and we generally keep the presenters chatting until about 9-9:30PM! Some of the expressions may have limited availability, and we may have to close down reservations early, s please drop us a line if you're interested and we'll save you a seat & a dram!

        WORLD whiskey day

SATURDAY May 17th

Share A Dram?

 

 

Our contribution to World Whisky Day will be a release of our very limited Pappy Van Winkle Bourbons, available in three unique flights only, not by the glass or bottle so that as many guests as possible can experience Pappy's and decide whether they agree with the hype surrounded this esteemed American whisky. 

Each flight will offer 4 different 3/4 oz global drams, each for a special price!

  

In addition we will be taking advantage of the day to clear off some long standing whisky inventory at half price, so we can start the next year with shelf space for new lines!

Ask for our Whiskey List upon arrival to see what specials we came up with!

 

Visit our World Whisky Day Page for more details!

       It could be called a wake for Johnnie's Green or Gold Label expressions, but that would be the sad side, and at the Pub we are all about the Happy so instead we'll define it as a "Welcome to America" party for the Gold Reserve and Platinum 18 year old. We'll have Scott Maudlin the current Master of Whisky with Diageo who can guide us through the line starting at Red and finishing somehwere around Platinum!

OTHER THINGS TO COME.....

 

      

        THE DALMORE - A Full Line Up Tasting! Date to be announced.

 

        Our last tasting with The Dalmore was before it was taken out of the US Market for a period of about 2 years when the parent company was resetting itself following being bought out and re-capitalized. It has taken a little while to rebuild our relationship with the brand, and in the months ahead we hope to host a full line up tasting here.

 

 

 

 

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!
