Another High-Dollar night with great offerings!
Rye whiskies take those spicy bourbons a little bit further. By limiting the amount of corn and increasing the amount of rye in the mashbill you replace the overall sweetness with a spiciness that excites the taste buds.
Recently I held a blind tasting that included four whiskies with a bottle price of under $20.
We began our 2020 tasting year with our annual Christmas party.
A recent tasting by the River City Whisky Society was a Blind Tasting.
High-Dollar night is always a great night. This is a once-a-year tasting for members only when we spend a few extra bucks to get high-end whiskies. This year we spent $2000.00 for six bottles tasted by 30 members.
A couple weeks ago we held a Bottled-in-Bond tasting.
The March 8th meeting/tasting of the River City Whisky Society a great turn-out with 36 folks attending. And with this meeting being so close to St. Patricks Day we went with an Irish Whiskey theme, of course. We actually took that a step further and did a comparison of finishes in Irish Whiskey.
RCWS tradition is to hold our annual Christmas Party in January. It gets us away from having to compete with company and family parties. This year we stuck with the tradition.
This past Friday was the latest meeting of the River City Whisky Society and it was a good one. We were recently contacted by Brad Duncan, the Market Manager (MO) for Midwest Grain Products (MGP), the largest distillery you have never heard of.
