Hudson Whiskey Club - "End of Year Special" - Review

Hello there,

It's been the better part of a week since I've updated this but it's been a bit mental with the build up to Christmas and all.  Now I think all is sorted, and bought, I'll be blasting away at the blog over the next week highlighting the whiskies that were on show when I attended the Hudson Bar, Belfast's "Whiskey Club" yesterday evening.

In the build up to the event it was billed as being an end of year special, showcasing no fewer than 8 whiskies that had wowed the attendees of the club over the year.  With a bit of food and great craic thrown in I think you'll agree it was pretty good value for £15 a ticket.

Upon arrival the mystery line up was revealed.  The whiskies on show were:

The Line-up for the evening
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12yr old
Bowmore Small Batch Reserve
Redbreast 12yr old
Bushmills 16yr old
Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon 12yr old
Kavalan Single Malt
Yamazaki 18yr old
Titanic 5yr old Blend

As i mentioned earlier I shall update here regularly over the next few days to break down the whiskies that were on show and review them in pairs.

As always, up until now, the evening was hosted by Michael Morris, a co-owner of the bar and someone who is also involved with setting up of the new Belfast Distillery Company.  However he began the evening by announcing that this was to be his last hosting of the club as there are plans to expand the club in the new year.

Fine nibbles that were quickly demolished
He revealed that the new year shall bring with it a more professional style whiskey club with guest hosts attending from various distilleries and whisky companies.  This news, along with quiet murmurings of a possible yearly subscription to the club, means that 2014 shall be a very exciting year for whiskey lovers in Belfast.  Anyone wishing to check out the Hudson's Facebook page can do so by clicking here.

To conclude I would just like to say that the Hudson Whiskey Club is easily the most popular whiskey event in town and it promises to only get better and better.

Until next time,
