This Tuesday, The Gallery on Broadhurst Gardens is hosting the next in its occasional whisky tasting sessions. This time around it's whisky & cheese.
Tickets are £10, for which you get to try seven whiskies and matched cheeses. All the profits (i.e., whatever's left after paying for the cheese) will go to The Winchester Project. Tickets are selling out, and you need to head to the bar to get one, so I would recommend doing so asap. Plenty of whampers are going to be there.
I went to the whisky & chocolate session a few months ago, and can honestly say it was great fun (and good value). Once again, Colin Dunn, Diageo's Whisky Brand Ambassador, will run the masterclass and he's an old hand at this sort of event. Last time around most people were whisky novices, but I think everyone really enjoyed it. I don't think of myself as a whisky novice - certainly my drinks cabinet* suggests otherwise - and I thought it was great. Oh, and the "tastes" are pretty generous!
