BUTLER PASSED HORS D’OEUVRES

Dewars White Label Blended Whiskey

In 1899, Dewars’ first Master Blender, A.J. Cameron created White Label.  Since then, it has won over 100 awards and is as full and round as it’s always been. A swirl of honey, with a sprig of Scottish heather. Rich, golden and warm. Clean, fresh vanilla, with a slice of pear. Soft, fruity and well-rounded.

 

7 P.M.  START WITH:

Red Rock Seafood Bisque

Dewars 12 Year Blended Whisky

After aging, Dewars 12 year is returned to Vintage oak casks and aged again so it can mature a little more.  This extra step is called double-aging.  It means the flavors stay awhile in the cask creating an even smoother blend, with a long lingering finish.  A drizzle of honey, homemade toffee apples & crumbly fudge. Warm, buttery and mellow.  Juicy sultanas and fresh citrus with a wisp of vanilla. Clean, full and lively.  Melted caramel, folded in slowly with a trace of oak. 

Rounded, smooth and lingering.

 

Hearts of Romaine, Tomato and Onion Salad

Dewars 18 Year Blended Whisky

Only using Scotland’s finest 18 year old malt and grain whiskies to create the full, smooth & creamy blend that is Dewars 18.  They return their blend to vintage oak cask for double-aging.  Slow spoonfuls of honey poured over fruit.  Rich, golden and mellow.  Almond and vanilla cream with smooth butterscotch Soft, buttery and sweet.  A full finish, rich oak and deep velvet.

 Long, reassuring and lingering.

 

Crab and Shitake Stuffed Filet Mignon with Diver Scallops

Aberfeldy12 Year Single Malt Whisky

Almost incense-like on the nose, with heather honey and a fruity softness, notes of pineapple, toast and cereal.  On the palate; full bodied & syrupy, lingering on the tongue like a liqueur.  Full flavored finish with the perfume characteristics becoming more spicy and a bitter hint of Seville oranges in a decidedly dry finish.

 

Chocolate Explosion with Vanilla Ice Cream

Aberfeldy 21 Year Single Malt Whisky

Deep gold color with amber highlights and a pleasing aroma of heathery honey followed by a fruity softness, hints of vanilla and burnt wood.  Full flavored on the palate with touches of Seville oranges lingering on the tongue.  Full bodied with a long, spicy, dry finish.
