We will continue our exploration of the "Five Whisky Regions" by visiting the Lowlands. We've collected examples from all six working distilleries that currently have whisky on the market. Is there such a thing as a "Lowland style?" We'll find out as we try these rare bottles, including an Eden Mill Distillery,  making us some of the first in America (and World!) to try it. Advance reservations required; no walk-ins, please. You are responsible for your own dinner tab.  Please…

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. Whisky producers, from independent bottlers to the distilling giants, have been releasing expressions with single digit ages. Nowhere does this new cult of youth show better than with peaty whiskies. We've gathered together seven bottles, from a barely legal three year old,…

Youthful Exuberance

$30.00

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.

This month we return to our exploration of the Five Whisky Regions with a visit to the Highlands.

Earlier this year we spent some time investigating the virtues of young whisky. This month we turn our attention towards the other end of the spectrum: Mature Malts. For your edification, we've assembled a selection of single malts from twenty-one to twenty-eight years of age. Is older whisky better whisky? Let's find out. You are responsible for your own dinner tab, but please order something, so they'll let us keep coming back. Reservations Required - No Walk-ins.

Dearly Beloved, Please join the Orange County Scotch Club in celebrating The Day of the Dead, and honoring seven distilleries now passed on to the big warehouse in the sky. Some of the biggest names among the dead will be there. Many of these expressions are off the market entirely and some are rarities that are skyrocketing in value and nearly impossible to find. This is likely to be the last chance for you to taste some of these dead…

Everyone's heard of Blended Scotch. And if you're part of this group, then you know something about Single Malt. But what about Blended Malts? Thanks to the current tariff situation, that “other scotch” has been (and no doubt will continue to be) the subject of much discussion. But what, exactly, is it, and what's in it for us? We've assembled a selection of whiskies, from everyday sippers to collectible rarities, to see what this oft overlooked style has to offer.…

We took a poll among a bunch of our friends, and asked one question: “What are the best whisky distilleries no one has ever heard of?” The group included a couple of respected whisky bloggers, a handful of industry professionals, and a few very knowledgeable amateurs. We collated their responses and came up with a list “hidden gems.” Of course, since this is the Orange County Scotch Club, it turns out that some of those gems are not so hidden…
