    This is where you can taste an incredible range of whiskies from Scotland to Kentucky, mingle with the producers and distillers, independent bottlers and brand ambassadors and meet the stars of the industry.The sheer range of whisky on show will challenge even the most determined taster; everything from old favourites to unusual finishes and rare bottlings. The very best whiskies of the world all under one roof.

    Daily Pint; best in LA, maybe best in California, maybe best in the country. It has a very large Scotch whisky menu.

    I just got word of a couple of discounts on Whisky Live being offered in conjunction with the LA Scotch Club. The first is a reduced price from $135 to $99 with the offer code "LASC99". This will give you a VIP ticket (early entrance) and admission to a master class being put on by a rep for Chieftans (a pretty good independent bottler that is rapidly expanding; they will be presenting some interesting expressions of various distilleries including a Benrinnes 26 year). The other discount is a reduced price from $105 to $78.50, which provides for regular admission; use offer code "LASC".

    This really is a dynamite event where you can expand on your whisky-loving experiences.

    The discounts are available through the Whisky Live website at Los Angeles 2011 - Whisky Live - World Whisk(e)y Tasting and Sampling Shows.

    Just had Doug Campell, Master Distiller for Tomatin, and their regional rep do a tasting at my place this past week. There's lots of good stuff. I remember fondly tasting their 30 year and 40 year last year. I preferred the 30 year. I was pleasantly surprised by the tasting. The 12 year is a fine pedestrian expression. The 15 year is a slight step up from that, but is different as it does not have a finish (whereas the 12 year is finished in a sherry cask). There is a really good value in the 18 year which sells for around $60. A very tasty whisky, and a good buy for that value. They also brought a new expression from the distillery called Decades. It is a mixture of different casks from the different decades in which Doug Campbell has worked at Tomatin. Its a bit more expensive (neighborhood of $100), but is a very good, warm whisky. Then they brought something amazingly special: a 28 year, single cask. Very few are available. It is selling for about $550 per bottle. Its pricing is probably based more on scarcity than taste, but it is really good stuff. We (meaning the scotch club) also brought a Douglas Laing "Old Malt Cask" expression of a Tomatin 40. It actually nosed of bubble gum. Really good stuff as well.

    There are some good values with Tomatin. If you're looking for something new and different, you might want to consider it.

    Was given a bottle of Macallan 12 for my birthday recently, and though the gesture is deeply appreciated I just don't like that Whiskey at all. Hadn't had it for some time and was shocked how terribly oak-dominated it was. In just one glass it was like someone beat me senseless upside the head with an oak plank, dragged me up and down the stairs (oak treads, go figure), then forced me to EAT that plank. It's got legions of loyal fans and to each his own. But man, not for me.
