Tasting #39: Annual Club Dinner


On Wednesday, August 14, 2019, the Saratoga Whiskey Club held its annual dinner feast.  The theme for this year was whiskey finished in a variety of different casks.  We had 48 people in attendance for this great evening of outdoor dining and tasting.  The weather cooperated for us which was nice!

Here is a list of the whiskies we tasted and the food that they were paired with:

  • We started with a Rye Lemonade Cocktail
  • Writers Tears Florio Marsala Cask Finish – Paired with Jerk Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers and Chicken Satay with Siracha Aioli
  • Sagamore Spirit Port Finished Rye – Paired with an Arugula Salad with Port Poached Pears & Roquefort
  • Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 Year – Paired with Lobster Sliders and Greek Israeli Cous Cous Salad
  • Bardstown Bourbon’s Phifer Pavitt Reserve – Paired with Braised Brisket with Bourbon Peach Glaze, Summer Succotash and Honey Jalapeno Cornbread
  • Limestone Branch Yellowstone Limited Edition 2018 – Paired with Whiskey Bacon Brownies

A big shout out to Airstream Catering for providing us with the food for this dinner!

And here’s to another great annual dinner!!  Cheers.
