Five Course Scotch and Cigar Dinner

August 19th, 2014 by chuck


Five Course Scotch and Cigar Dinner
Featuring ~ The Lost Distilleries
September 25th, 2014

Historic Water Street Inn

Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres
Smoked Haddock Spread on Oat Crackers
Served with ~ Stratheden
Stratheden Distillery – 1829-1926 –
Sweet and peppery to taste, at bottled strength, with a trace of salt and a warming, medium-length finish. Lingering heat. Similar profile with water, at reduced levels, but without the salt and warm finish.

Scotch Eggs
Hard boiled Free-Range egg, wrapped in house-made sausage, breaded and fried
Served with ~ Stratheden Vintage
Stratheden Distillery – 1829-1926 –
Surprisstratheden-bottle_180x1000ingly sweet and peppery to taste, at bottled strength, with a trace of salt and a warming, medium-length finish. Lingering heat.

Similar profile with water, at reduced levels, but with more fruit.

Bibb, Arugula, and Nasturtium with Toffee Walnuts and Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette
Served with ~ Gerston
The Gerston Distilleries- 1796-1882 & 1886-1914 –
Smooth texture, sweet taste with smoke in the finish and a mineral twist. Water softens the texture; less sweet but still smoky, and a lingering smokiness in the aftertaste.

Pork Porterhouse with Charred Apple Demi-Glace, “Neeps” and Mash
Served with ~ Gerston Vintage
Smooth texture, sweet taste and a surprising amount of smoke in the finish – more coal smoke/steam engine than peat smoke. An unusual, antique taste, which holds up well with a drop of water, although the smoky element is reduced.

Pear Tart
Served with ~ Auchnagie
Auchnagie Distillery – 1812-1911 –
Very sweet to taste at bottled strength, with considerable spice across the tongue and a warming, medium-length finish. Fruity boiled sweets in the aftertaste. At reduced strength it is less sweet and less spicy, but remains fruity, with a trace of vanilla sponge – Eve’s Pudding.
$74.95 per person (plus tax & Gratuity) ~ includes 2 Hand-Rolled Cigars
Reservations required
