A Remarkable Regional Mix Up! Instagram Tasting

I was very lucky to have received a lovely email inviting me to a series of online Whisky & Cocktail tastings on Instagram…what a treat! This was to include two whiskies which I had been eager to try, Timourous Beastie and Big Peat.

March 21st quickly arrived and after a quick trip to Tesco for ice cubes, I was ready to go.

It was great fun interacting with everyone and making two cocktails up as we went along, the first was an Old Fashioned using Timorous Beastie, Angostura Bitters (cutest teeny bottle ever) with ice, and the second the Smoky Whisky Sour with Big Peat. This was made using the sugar syrup, lemon juice, some powdered egg white and Big Peat. I have to say this cocktail more than hit the spot, the smokiness of the whisky against the sour of the lemon and the sweetness of the syrup was an absolute delight!

Thanks to Jan and Douglas Laing / Remarkable Malts for a wonderfully tasty and memorable evening…
