November is (un)officially whisky month. Right? Especially in Winnipeg.
Next week for our first ancillary event we are proud to be welcoming Select Wines’ Lee Hanson who will lead us through an exciting tasting of six bottles of outstanding Scotch whisky from Hunter Laing.

The sixth meeting of the Winnipeg Whisky Club will ring in the Fall season for its members and guests who will be in attendance.
We will sample 4 to 6 higher- end sherry matured single malt whiskies together and discuss the flavours before picking our favourites.
Glenburgie 1995 ( G&M Cask Strength)
One of the highlights of the night will be G&M Cask Strength Glenburgie 1995 – a 22 year old exclusively matured in a refill sherry butt that is near mahogany in colour. The full whisky set list will be released in the coming days.
What is a sherry monster? This is a relatively new term used to describe a single malt whisky matured exclusively ( or predominantly) in ex-Sherry wine casks – barrels formerly used to mature Spanish Sherry wine. This gives the whisky a deep reddish hue, and brings about luscious red fruit notes, rich sweetness, and tannins to balance the spicy nutty earthiness of single malt distillate.
We will use the meeting space provided by club member and local Realtor phenom Gino Cipriano at 1883 Henderson Highway.
Membership in the club is $33 per month for 2019. The guest pledge for this month’s event is $40.
Members are asked to RSVP by Wednesday August 21. If you are interested membership or in attending as a guest, please contact club president Mark Kaufmann at email@example.com.
Business enquiries are also appreciated.
Hope to see you August 29 at our Sherry Monster Spectacular!
Oh the summer barbecue.
The best barbecues are the simplest. Easy going friends. Great easy going food. Easy drinking beer. Easy sipping whisky. Whisky? Well we are a whisky club after all…

July 31 will be the 5th Club Night. This has been on the calendar since the beginning.
For food, we will have my homemade burgers. We will also have my wife Eunhye’s spicy Korean chicken. We will have corn on the cob, too. We will wash the morsels down with some local brews.
The “set list” of libations took careful thought. Whisky we can enjoy but not have to think overly deeply about. ‘Session’ whisky. So which whiskies/whiskeys you ask?
