After a couple of month away, The Whisky Exchange’s Virtual Tastings are back! Join us for a fantastic pair of December tastings with our friends at Diageo – proper festive treats.
A couple of months off…
Well, we weren’t really ‘away’ as such. We ran the world’s biggest online whisky festival – Virtual Whisky Show – with more than 400 talks across eight days streamed to more than 1000 visitors from more than 50 countries…
We’ve also got Virtual Champagne Show coming up this weekend – three days of fizz and fun. There are still tickets available, and enough time to order in a tasting pack or two to join in with a glass in hand.
We’re easing ourselves back into our regular Virtual Tastings with help from a long-time friend – irrepressible Diageo brand ambassador Colin “Ain’t no foolin’” Dunn. He’ll be joined by a couple of his colleagues and our head buyer Dawn Davies to taste through two great line-ups of whisky.
Wednesday 2 December 2020, 7pm GMT – Diageo Special Releases 2020 Virtual Tasting: The annual special releases tasting with Colin is a highlight of our tasting year so we’re very pleased to be able to keep it in the calendar by moving it online. Dawn will be joined by Colin and his podcast buddy, ambassador TJ Littlejohn, to taste through all eight of this year’s Diageo Special Releases – Cardhu 11 Year Old, Dalwhinnie 30 Year Old, Cragganmore 20 Year Old, Pittyvaich 30 Year Old, Singleton of Dufftown 17 Year Old, Talisker 8 Year Old, Lagavulin 12 Year Old and Mortlach 21 Year Old.

These are our final virtual tastings for 2020, but we’ll be back in the new year with more. We may not be able to get together in person to share a drink or two just yet, but we’ll be online with tasty things until that day comes around.
