Youthful Exuberance

May 19 @ 6:00 pm
Chapter One, 227 N. Broadway
Santa Ana, CA 92701
$30

Last month we tasted a group of young, very peaty whiskies. This month we tackle some youngsters with no more than a whisper of peat. We've assembled a collection six bottles, from a "yesterday we couldn't call it whisky" three year old from the newest distillery in the Highlands, to an "almost grown-up" nine from Speyside's rising star. How will they stack up against they're more assertive brethren? We'll find out. Reservations required - No walk-ins.

Young, Loud, and Snotty: Peaty Whisky Under 10 Yrs Old

April 28 @ 6:00 pm
Chapter One, 227 N. Broadway
Santa Ana, CA 92701
+ Google Map
$30

The whisky world worships maturity, with age statements of even basic expressions pushing higher and higher all of the time. But in the last couple of years, connoisseurs have been rediscovering the joys of younger, more sprightly drams.

We've gathered together seven bottles, from a barely legal three year old,…
