Yelp Elites Go Whisky Tasting in Birmingham
It may have been a school night but last Tuesday, Yelp Elites were invited to a tasting by Whisky Birmingham. The organisers are currently planning Birmingham's first whisky festival but Amy & Joe kindly took time out to introduce Yelpers to this fine Scottish spirit.
Joe picked five whiskies for Yelpers to try, but before they drank them, he taught everyone how to! Similar to wine, the first lesson learnt was how to smell it and then Yelpers sipped. No downing-in-one for these beautiful honey coloured concontions.
Whisky was being desribed as smelling and tasting like smoky bacon, orange, sultanas, chlorine, chocolate, TCP, BBQs and pencil shavings!
In a lovely fun environment, Yelpers were encouraged to ask questions about whisky that they were too afraid to ask. They sat back and relaxed in a private room in Loki Wine while Joe talked about the regions in Scotland where the whiskies came from.
Everyone left with a renewed or new love for whisky and vowed to be back for the cheese and whisky tasting. So huge thanks to Amy and Joe from Whisky Birmingham for giving the fabulous whisky education.
Thank you to Loki Wines for hosting in their elegant private room and to all the yelpers who came and made it such a fantastic Tuesday night!

Until next time, SYOY!
