Last week I was invited to The Macallan tasting event at 99 Sudbury. We at Toronto Moda aren't what you'd call Whisky connaisseurs but it didn't stop us from giving this a go. When we arrived, 99 Sudbury was decorated perfectly with red chairs and a great ambiance.
The Macallan distillery is located, where else, but in Scotland, in a little town called Speyside. The Jacobean manor house, built in 1700, is The Macallan's Spiritual Home. Now, we know of The Macallan as a premium Whiskey. Most recently, a rare 64 year old bottle went up for auction in New York and sold for a whopping $460,000!
Although, I'm not an avid Whisky drinker, this event was still quite the treat! The venue was perfectly suited for this event and the crowd couldn't have been better. I can now say I have a stronger appreciation for Scotch, and maybe some of the cheeses too!
