As time goes by and I get older I'm much more interested in a lasting experience than I am in a lasting bottle of booze. Part of the reason that people are willing to pay more for whisky today is because whisky keeps. You can nurse a $100 bottle over the course of many years, rather than plough through it all in one night like you need to with wine. But I've got too many open bottles of whisky at home already these days. Personally, I'd rather have one awesome $100 night on the town, than I would one awesome $100 bottle of whisky at home; even if that night only lasts the course of a few hours. Part of the reason I enjoy traveling to Scotland each year is because of the memories I create while tasting with different people, sharing ideas, holding a glass of whisky while I learn more about it and increase my awareness of the spirit. Those are the moments that ultimately last, far longer than that last tiny bit of Port Ellen 30 I'll probably never get around to finishing. But where can you have such an experience around here? Who will provide you with a unique, interesting, exciting, and engaging evening full of Scotch variety and intrigue where you can talk casually but intently with other connoisseurs and professionals? We can! There are still tickets available for this coming Tuesday's whisky event at Bar Agricole on 11th Street in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood. We're pulling out all the stops on the patio for what should be a glorious evening.
