Five Course Scotch and Cigar Dinner

Featuring The Compass Box Whisky Co.

Presented by Chris Johnson of Wirtz Beverage

September 19th, 2013

Historic Water Street Inn

 

6 P.M.  SOCIAL HOUR:

Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres

Served with ~ Spice Tree, Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Our innovative and highly acclaimed blended malt whisky returns in a new edition. Made from Highland malt whiskies which we age in bespoke casks with new French oak heads of varying toast levels. It yields a malt whisky of richness and complexity.

 

7 P.M.  START WITH:

APPETIZER

Chilled Shrimp Cocktail

With Scotch Whiskey Cocktail Sauce

Served with ~ Great King Street, Blended Scotch Whiskey

More than just a new brand, Great King Street is a mission, a mission dedicated to reviving interest in one style of whisky only: Blended Scotch Whisky. This is the style of Scotch whisky that combines flavourful single malt whiskies with delicate, elegant single grain whiskies.

SALAD

Smoked Duck Breast Salad

Baby Greens Tossed with Raspberry Vinaigrette & Black Pepper Crusted Goat Cheese

Served with ~ Flaming Heart, Vatted Malt Scotch Whiskey

Flaming Heart is back. Every few years, when we have the appropriate combination of aged whiskies, we are able to blend and bottle a new edition of the award-winning Flaming Heart. This is our fourth. It is a big, smoky malt whisky with rich, concentrated vanilla and spice character. It is unlike any other whisky, owing to the combination of distillery whiskies we use and the variety and quality of the casks.

ENTREE

Prime Rib of Beef

With Au Jus, Twice Baked Potato and Sautéed Green Beans with Slivered Carrots

Served with ~ The Peat Monster, Blended Malt Scotch Whiskey

For those who love big, rich, peaty and smoky malt whiskies, this is your whisky. Bottled at 46%, “The Peat Monster” combines extremely smoky malt whisky from Islay with medium-peated Highland whiskies to create a balanced and approachable monster, but a monster nonetheless. Enjoy!

 

DESSERT

Poached Pears in Gran Marnier

Over Orange Pound Cake

Served with ~ Orangerie, Scotch Whisky Infusion

To make Orangerie we begin with great whisky. We use a soft, sweet blend of Highland single malt and single grain whisky from Fife. Secondly, we use only the freshest, highest quality oranges and top class aromatic spices. Importantly, we zest the fruit by hand and use only fresh zest in our infusion. Only the hand-zested peel of really fresh Navalino oranges gives you the lively, vibrant flavours that are the hallmark of Orangerie.

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®.

APPETIZER

SALAD

Orange Lobster Salad with Lime Mezcal Cilantro dressing

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.

6 P.M. SOCIAL HOUR:

BUTLER PASSED HORS D’OEUVRES

 

 

Cabo Wabo Blanco

 

As crystal clear as the waters surrounding Cabo San Lucas, Cabo Wabo Tequila Blanco arouses the senses with fresh floral aromas complemented by notes of lime and mint. Handcrafted from 100-percent Weber’s Blue Agave, our blanco boasts unadulterated agave flavors and a slightly spicy character that teases the

palate, and delivers a crisp, clean finish.

BRAISED BEEF SHORT RIBS WITH MUSHROOMS, PEARL ONIONS ROSEMARY

 

 

Served with ~ Maestro Doebel

 

Maestro® Dobel is a unique blend of Extra- Añejo, Añejo and Reposado Tequila blended and filtered to

produce a crystal clear liquid. The agave is selected from the Lowland family owned ranches where the terroir produces lighter, herbal and citric aromas. Ideally balanced by clarity, complexity, crispness and craftsmanship, it boasts a full-bodied palate, with bold notes of smoked wood and dried fruits. These

flavors are carefully balanced by a light nutmeg spiciness and a sweet honey finish.

SALAD

SHRIMP, MANGO AND AVOCADO SALAD WITH A SWEET CHILI-TEQUILA VINAIGRETTE

 

 

Served with ~ Herradura Reposado

 

Introduced in 1962, Herradura Reposado is made from 100% Tequilana Weber Blue Agaves. Aged one month short of being considered “Anejo”, this Reposado perfectly blends the smooth taste of wood with agave.

It blends cooked agave with a nice balance of wood, fruity notes, vanilla and spices, like cinnamon. Bright, transparent and shiny with an amber-gold color of mild intensity, golden tints and a great body. Elegant

and harmonious, its taste confirms the anticipated smell.

barrels where it gains its delicate amber hue, an array of subtle flavors, and its unique smooth, smoky

finish. With a pale amber color and aromas of toasted oak, lightly cooked agave and a hint of caramel-

vanilla sweetness; the taste is full and balanced, with brown sugar and caramel notes.
