From time to time the Alexis Hotel hosts vertical scotch tastings led by a brand ambassador from one of the major scotch companies. The price is $30; this buys you a chance to sample five scotches plus snacks, which tend towards the ample.
On Monday, January 17—Martin Luther King Day—Rick Edwards of Glenlivet will do the honors, pouring five single malts aged between 12 and 21 years. Prepare to leave the tasting with a mild buzz and a rudimentary understanding of Scotland’s whiskey-making regions and processes.
The two-hour tasting begins at 7pm, call the Bookstore Bar to reserve.
