Hurray for Tuesday tastings! And hurray for JP and Party Town for making the arrangements for these fun events after a long day at work.
We were joined by Heritage Wine & Spirits representative, Christian McManus, for a special wine and spirits tasting.
Christian featured the following:
- Happy Vines! Sauvignon Blanc
- Happy Vines! Pinot Grigio
- Happy Vines! Cabernet Sauvignon
- Morrigan 5 year old Irish Whiskey
- Cimarron Blanco 100% Blue Agave Tequila
The Happy Vines! wines, were created by two French wine makers, sourcing their grapes from France and Italy. All three were smooth and enjoyable. I was surprised at how much I liked the whites. Both were quite refreshing. And of course I liked the Cab Sauv.
Morrigan was my first experience trying Irish Whiskey and I was again pleasantly surprised by its smoothness. Having been influenced for years by Bushmaster and his love of Kentucky Bourbon, I had not ventured much into other whiskeys. Morrigan is definitely one I would like to add to our stash and share with him.
Cimarron Blanco was also very smooth and smelled like a margarita all by itself. While I love margaritas and other tequila drinks, I haven’t been a fan of sipping straight tequila so this also was a new experience for me. I found it enjoyable by itself, but I did find myself imagining how wonderful the flavor would be in a margarita. I can’t wait to try it.
Thank you again, JP, for another fun evening!
