LASC: Burns Supper 2014 with Aberlour

There was a huge turnout for LA Scotch Club’s Burns Supper. My guess is that there were about 80 people in attendance. We were completely sold out.

For 2014, we partnered with Aberlour and drank some mighty fine whisky, including the regular 12 year old, the 12 year old non-chill filtered, the 16 year, the 18 year, A’bunadh (one of my favorites), the 22 year Darkness, and for those that offered a poem – a 1970 Aberlour.

LASC: Burns Supper 2013 with Balvenie

Last night, I had a tremendous amount of fun at the LA Scotch Club’s Burns Supper at Beckham Grill in Pasadena. We had many, many drams of Balvenie Scotch (including the 12 year Double Wood, the 14 year Caribbean Cask, the 15 year Single Barrel, the 17 year Double Wood, the 21 year Port Wood, and Batch 9 of the Tun 1401!), ate some tasty haggis, and recited poetry! For those who entertained us with a poem of their own were treated to a healthy dram of Glenfiddich 30 year old!!

It was great to reconnect with old friends. I can’t wait until the next event.

Sl√°inte!

LASC: Peatin’ Meetin’ 2013 Recap – It gets better every year

Now that my life has some semblance of normality, without further ado, my recap of the LA Scotch Club‘s Peatin’ Meetin’ 2013….

dec012013-09

This past Peatin’ Meetin’ took place in late June at UCLA’s (Go Bruins!) Sunset Recreational Center. As you can tell from the picture, it was a beautiful day for our “little” get together. In total, we had about 320 people on site, drinking scotch, eating steak, smoking cigars, and just having a great time!
