A warm welcome from Corinium Radio to a very special evening of chocolate and whisky…
This unique event will treat you to a truly top quality experience of pairing five handmade chocolates and selected malt whiskies. The chocolates have been specially created for us in Inverness by expert chocolatier Debbie Niven and the whiskies have been selected by Cirencester’s Roger Reid with support from the Manager of The Whisky Shop, Scott Mackenzie Dunn, also in Inverness. Debbie and Scott have been working closely together to give Roger considerable help in preparation for our unique pairing of the handmade chocolates and interesting and rare whiskies.
One of the five whiskies’ you’ll taste has been described by Roger as ‘Somewhat of a hidden gem from Dufftown on Speyside’. This is the ‘Mortlach Rare Old’. Matured in bourbon and sherry casks giving an enticing, complex malt whisky with flavours of fruit cake, spice and orange zest. A beautifully balanced dram – velvety and very more- ish. The Mortlach will be paired with triple chocolate fudge drizzled in dark chocolate. A delicious blend of Belgian white, milk and dark chocolate.
Just to tempt your palate further there will also be a rare and very interesting malt from Islay. (Tasting notes of this rare bottle are available in advance on request)
