The Sofitel Hotel hosted a scotch whiskey tasting on Thursday, April 4th in their swanky bar, La Bourse. Several liquor companies were there, each with five to eight different kinds of scotch from different areas of the land of the kilt. Midway through, a bagpipe player piped his way through the bar, prompting the pourers to add an extra splash to our glasses. The Old Boys club was present, but so too, were some new inductees to the 80-proof club – a few young women made the scene lively and even chomped down on cigars at the bar with the old guard. Catch the next tastings every thursday in April - the 11th, 18th, and 25th.
