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.




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.


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.


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!



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®.




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.


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.


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.



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.

6:00PM 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 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.

Five Course Whiskey and Cigar Dinner

Featuring Balvenie Scotch


September 20th, 2012

Historic Water Street Inn

6 pm




Balvenie 17 Year Peated Cask

 In 2001, a heavily peated batch of barley was distilled at The Balvenie Distillery and was allowed to mature until The Balvenie Malt Master, David Stewart, decided it was time to rejuvenate the maturation process and so the whisky was transferred to newly prepared traditional casks. The casks that had originally held the peated liquid had taken on much of its character and so David decided to experiment by filling them with 17 year old Balvenie for a short period. The result was an intensely peaty whisky. Marrying this liquid with 17 year old Balvenie finished in new American oak casks produced The Balvenie Peated Cask, a complex single malt that is rich and spicy with layers of smokiness.

7 pm



Rolled Flank Steak with Roasted Red Peppers and Spinach over Cheesy Grits with aWhiskey Plum Sauce

  Balvenie 12 Year Signature

 The Balvenie Signature Aged 12 Years is a classic marriage of The Balvenie matured in the three most traditional cask types, first fill bourbon, refill bourbon and sherry. It has a unique character of honey, spice and subtle oak and each batch is allowed time to harmonise in a traditional marrying tun.


Shrimp Salad with Grilled Pineapple, Roasted Beets and a Orange-Basil Dressing

Balvenie 15 Year Single Cask

The Balvenie Single Barrel is a 15 year old single malt which is drawn from a single traditional oak whisky cask of a single distillation. Whilst each cask is subtly different, The Balvenie Malt Master selects only those casks which have the essential characteristics of The Balvenie Single Barrel, particularly honey, vanilla and oaky notes. Each bottling forms a limited edition of no more than 350 hand-numbered bottles – so each bottle is unique and unrepeatable.


Veal Chop Provencal over Tri-Color Couscous with Whiskey Laced Dried Fruit andGrilled Zucchini

Balvenie 12 Year Double Wood

The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. Over its period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt ~ the traditional casks soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.


Chocolate Trifle with Fudge Pound Cake, Whiskey Spiked Sabayon,

Mixed Berries and Shaved White Chocolate

Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask

After a 14 year maturation period in traditional oak whisky casks, the Balvenie is then transferred to the rum casks, leading to an exceptional Single Malt that exemplifies the signature smooth, honeyed character of the Balvenie, while adding unique notes of toffee and fruit that come from its innovative cask finish.

Black Bush

With an intriguing flavor and a name to match, this is our special blend.  It combines a uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso Sherry casks with a sweet, batch-distilled grain whiskey  This unique recipe gives Black Bush its rich fruity notes and deep intense character, balanced by a unique smoothness.  The nose is big and full with a rich fruitcake aroma and intense Sherry sweetness developing into dried fruit, raisin and Christmas cake notes.  It is soft and silky on the palate with a nutty character.  A lingering sweetness on the finish shows a remarkable balance between the poier from Sherry-seasoned casks and the smoothness of the spirit.




Caramelized Onion Dip with Cilantro-Garlic Pit Crisps

Bushmill’s 10 Year

Triple distilled from 100% malted barley and matured for a minimum of 10 years mainly in Bourbon-seasoned barrels, it has aromas of honey, vanilla and milk chocolate.  The nose is fresh and zesty with notes of honey and ripe fruit.  Soft on the palate flavors of vanilla, milk chocolate and toasted wood finish crisp, clean and gently drying.


Steak Waldorf Salad with Red Apples, Spiced Walnuts and a Whiskey Spiked Honey Dijon Dressing

 Bushmills Original

The Cornerstone of the Bushmills family.  It’s a blend of Bushmills own triple distilled malt whiskey with a lighter Irish grain whiskey making it an approachable whiskey with a rich, warming taste of fresh fruit and vanilla.  It has a light and fruity nose with a spicy aroma, notes of vanilla developing into vanilla ice cream and creme brulee.  The gently warming texture coats the mouth and has a touch of honey sweetness.  The finish is crisp and fresh with a touch of spice.



Marinated Porterhouse Steak with Parmesan Paprika Butter, Wasabi Green Onions, Mashed Potatoes and Hericot Verts with Bacon


Bushmill’s 16 Year

This distinctive Irish malt whiskey is aged for 16 years in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon-seasoned casks, then matured for several months in Port wine barrels – a unique maturation which imparts distinct notes of juicy fruits, nuts and spice, as well as a hint of ruby redness.  The robust nose carries notes of treacle toffee and sweet spice.  Full bodied with flavors of praline, honey, caramelized fruits and toasted nuts.  Deep finish of jammed berries and dark chocolate.
