Another great evening with great whiskies and interesting chocolates. A very pleasant indeed and good company. I was again impressed by you knowledge and the enjoyable way you impart it.
I look forward to the next one and so do my guest who had a good new experience with whisky.
Great event , choice of whiskey, venue and food top draw – well done. Thoughts on a St Georges night?
A fantastic concept and fantastic evening. The venue, food and whisky perfect. The whole evening blended with your expert knowledge made it an excellent evening.
Can’t wait for the chocolate event pre book me for 2 places
I really enjoyed the Supper Club dinner with Whisky Drams. It was a really informative and interesting evening with excellent company. Paul clearly has a fantastic grasp about a host of different whiskies and their specialities and imparted his knowledge in a humorous and entertaining way. I would recommend one of these evenings to both whisky and non-whisky drinkers like me!
If it is at all appropriate for a guy from Liverpool to comment upon the proprieties of a Burn’s Night, I will say that Paul’s’ enthusiasm was the perfect foil to often serious and semi-religious events at the invitation of Scottish friends. The subtlety shown in guiding us to investigate (sipping) great whiskies of the world, whilst avoiding any reference to the existence of all things English, was highly appropriate and innovative. A great venue and an excellent chef gave Paul the chance to teach us to connect the flavours of the food with the whiskies, whilst guiding the Philistines amongst us, so that we didn’t anaesthetise our taste buds along the way.
“Burns Night with a twist” – also a great way to “Make January wet again”
I learned so much and had a great time. Thank you for bringing so much knowledge with you and opening our eyes to some fantastic whiskies. Really, last night was Awesome!! I look forward to coming back.
The first time I met Paul, and he told me what he did. I proceeded to tell him about how many years ago I visited the Oban Distillery in Scotland and tried to convince myself to like Whisky and couldn’t. I also explained to Paul how I just didn’t get how people could taste all of these different flavours in the whisky, to me it just all smelt and tasted the same, awful!.
Paul then proceeded to show me how to taste it correctly by ‘nosing’ the whisky, honestly I thought he was nuts but I went along with it, it sounds a bit cliche but it was unbelievable, suddenly I could actually smell the different flavours and no longer got the burning sensation when drinking it. Since then I’ve been to one of the Whisky Drams evenings where the Whisky is matched with the food, Paul’s knowledge and talent is second to none, I can’t wait to have him do an evening in one of our developments.
What a great evening at the Alternative Burns Night whisky tasting with Whisky Drams in the Punchbowl Mayfair, we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening which was both fun and informative , with superb whiskies and food. A good mix of people, I’m sure with some there maybe business opportunities possible in the future. Paul did a stirling job as MC and whisky expert. I’ll certainly go again.
Paul you clearly went to a great deal of trouble to choose the setting, ambience, food, and indeed the stellar and varied whiskies. It was a most convivial, different, informative and pleasingly slightly “off the wall” evening and a total distraction from normality – so thank you – and some fun people to share the evening with. Thanks
Many thanks for such a great evening! Really enjoyed it. You are a super expert and raconteur.
