Surprisstratheden-bottle_180x1000ingly sweet and peppery to taste, at bottled strength, with a trace of salt and a warming, medium-length finish. Lingering heat.

SALAD
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.

ENTREE
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.

DESSERT
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.

Five Course Tequila and Cigar Dinner

July 25th, 2013

Historic Water Street Inn

 

6 P.M.  SOCIAL HOUR:

Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres

Sauza Hornitos Lime

Untouched by wood barrels, unmarked by aging, our crystal clear Plata is the purest expression of 100% agave flavor. Its floral, herbal notes take you by surprise.  Lime Shot takes our Plata tequila and adds a hint of lime and salt. But more than that, it’s a ritual in a bottle, brought out when you need everyone to gather around, kick the party off and grab life by the Hornitos®.

 

7 P.M.  START WITH:

APPETIZER

Tequila Sunrise marinated grilled Quail with Cherry Chutney

Served with ~ Corazon Blanco

Corazon Blanco has aromas of sweet cooked agave with fruity and floral notes.  Flavors of cooked agave with citrus and pear, finish with a long, elegant and creamy texture.

SALAD

Orange Lobster Salad with Lime Mezcal Cilantro dressing

Served with ~ Cazadores Reposado

Cazadores Reposado gets its name from resting for over two months in new, small, American White oak casks (instead of used bourbon barrels).  Made from 100% Blue Agave gives it a rich aroma and flavor.

ENTREE

Brazilian Steak stuffed with Shrimp & Pepper jack cheese, topped with Roasted Red Pepper Hollandaise, served with green chile cheesy grits

Served with ~ Corzo Anejo

Our Anejo is twice mellowed during its crafting to achieve an unparalleled smoothness and a refined taste.  Aromas of warm caramel and flavors of honeyed toast, brown spice and dates.  Finishes long and smooth, with a sweet fade of baked fruits, spice and toffee.

 

DESSERT

Tres Leche Flan with coffee patron caramel sauce

Served with ~ Tanteo Cacoa

Roasted, malted and raw cocoa, reminiscent of the traditional mole, is infused into our 100% agave tequila.  This results in a peppery, dark, roasted and malted cocoa taste.

$74.95 per person (plus tax & Gratuity) ~ includes 2 Hand-Rolled Cigars

Irish Whiskey Dinner March 7th

February 19th, 2013 by chuck

Charlies Pub  Rest - FINAL copyIrish Whiskey Dinner

March 7, 2012

5-course dinner with Irish Whiskey paired with each course includes

2 handed rolled cigars.

$74.95 per person (plus tax & tip)

6:00PM Social Time:

Passed hor deuvers

Connemara 8 Year

Connemara Peated Single malt Irish whiskey is inspired by the ancient Irish tradition of drying malting barley over peat fires. For centuries, peat (or turf as it is known locally) was widely used in Ireland to dry cereal crops and to fire the stills. Over the last century this tradition was lost until Cooley revived it to produce its world famous Connemara Single Malt.

 

7:00PM Dinner Starts with:

Appetizer Course

Marinated Grilled lamb chop on a potato cake with a minted lamb jus and crispy parsnips

 

Kilbeggan

Kilbeggan is a uniquely Irish whiskey. Like most Irish people, Kilbeggan is easy going and approachable, but with its own distinctive style. The finest grain and malt whiskeys are blended together for the smooth, sweet taste and lovely malty finish that is Kilbeggan Irish whiskey.

 

Salad Course

Bibb and apple salad with streaky rashers and Camembert dressing

 

Greenore 8 Year Old Single Grain

A truly unique whiskey as it is the only expression of Irish Single Grain whiskey in the world. Single Grain whiskeys are very rare as most Grain whiskey is normally mixed with Malt whiskeys to make Blended whiskey. Greenore is distilled from maize/corn and is matured for 8 years exclusively in first fill ex-bourbon casks. Each bottling of Greenore Single Grain is made up of a small batch of casks that have been hand selected by our Master Blender for their exceptional quality.

 

Entrée Course

Bone in ribeye steak with spinach-porcini stuffing, Irish whiskey gravy and horseradish cream

 

Tyrconnell Single Malt

Tyrconnell dates back to the glory days of Irish whiskey. Traditionally, most Irish malt has been used to create blended Irish whiskey so it is rare to find Irish malt whiskey bottled in its purest form. Distilled in the old Irish tradition this pure pot still single malt whiskey uses only the most natural Irish ingredients of barley and fresh spring water. The resulting whiskey is then left to peacefully mature in oak casks stored in 200 year old granite warehouses allowing it to develop its full flavor and character

 

Dessert Course

Pecan praline semifreddo with whiskey caramel and Irish lace cookies

 

Tyrconnell 10 Year Madeira Cask

Tyrconnell 10 Year Madeira Cask is full gold in appearance, with a full nose and fruity aromas with a playful citrus spritzyness.  On the palate a tang of oranges and lemons with a strong malt presence that balances well with the oily sweetness.  It finishes long with the malt becoming more prominent.
