This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Frozen Johnnie Gold

Dinner at the Chinnery.

Whisky mojito frappé - I ordered it again as it's really very good, and David Sinclair showed me the bitters he splashed onto the ice, which was actually aged in whisky barrels. It does add some complexity to the flavors. Glu-glu-glu...

Johnnie Walker Gold Label, frozen - David very kindly poured me a frozen shot of this.  It was spicy with just a hint of sweetness mid-palate and spicy on the finish. Flavors were complex and woodsy. He seems to really like freezing them! I think it's an interesting take, except I was definitely able to smell the freezer as I held the shot glass to my nose, just like the other night...

Full post on dinner is here.
