Welcome to the Whiskey Wednesday Roundtable number 007! I thought since this was the seventh installment of the WWRT, we’d kick it James Bond style! Originally, I was going to review the Macallan 50 year old that Bond drinks in the new movie, Skyfall. However, finding a sample of that proved to be harder than I thought.
1. Whiskey Wednesday Review:
Instead of the Macallan 50 year old, we will take a look at an up and coming WhistlePig 100/100 Straight Rye Whiskey. Probably complex enough to be a Bond staple drink. Maybe.
2. Interesting news story this week:
Will all six actors to play James Bond (I know, technically there were 7!) make an appearance together at the Oscars? I’ll get Q on it.
3. Our favorite whiskey, err..Bond related product of the week:
Have you ever wanted to know the true secrets within MI-6? Then you need to read The Art of Betrayal: The Secret History of MI6: Life and Death in the British Secret Service.
4. Recipe of the week:
With the cold weather finally starting to make itself known, a warm whisky drink might be in order.
That’s it for the 007th Whiskey Wednesday Roundtable. Stop by next week for No. 8! Let us know if you have any recommendations for future links or any other input on our Contact Page.
