THE BALVENIE with DAVID LAIRD

Monday, April 17 , 2017

location: Lost Property Bar (1704 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90028)

This educational event was hosted by David Laird, Balvenie Ambassador with William Grant & Sons. The core range was explored as well as a surprise or two. A welcome cocktail and light appetizers were served before the whisky tasting started.

 

The Balvenie distillery is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Dufftown, Scotland, owned by William Grant & Sons. Each expression is unique, but all are rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by a distinctive honeyed character crafted by Malt Master David Stewart. Understanding his craft like few others, David uses different cask types and ages of spirit, to develop exquisite, new interpretations of The Balvenie's classic character.
