Andre's Cigar Lounge's Popular 'Whisk(e)y Wednesday' Returns Dec. 5th
Published on Fri, Nov 30, 2012 (7:45 a.m.)Ring in the holidays with the finest Scotch tasting in the land at Andre’s Cigar Lounge, Dec. 5th, at the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino.
Andre’s famed Whisk(e)y Wednesday is closing out the year in classic style when Southern Wine & Spirits representatives join us for an education on none other than “The Dalmore,” the highland Single Malt Scotch award-winner in production for 180 years.
You will be tasting 5 distinct Dalmore tastings – 12, 15 and 18-year blends, in addition to the very rare Cigar Malt and King Alexander III bottlings. RSVPs in advance are $25 by calling (702) 798-7151; any remaining tickets are $35 at the door.
The Dalmore, long known for its iconic family crest of royal stag antlers, was begun by the Clan Mackenzie in 1839. Located on the northern shores of the Firth of Cromarty in the spectacular Scottish Highlands, the distillery enjoys rare salt air. Even its warehouses are aligned to face the North Sea to provide unique conditions for smooth and tasty maturation.
Whisk(e)y Wednesday’s patrons will enjoy the rare introduction to The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve, too, a 44% alcohol compilation of scotch stock drawn from three different casks: American white oak ex-bourbon casks, 30-year-old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, and premier cru Cabernet Sauvignon white barriques.
Southern Wine & Spirits will also be bringing The Dalmore’s King Alexander III to the table, which unites six specially selected casks from bourbon, sherry, Madeira, Marsala, port and Cabernet casks and barrels.
