It's a problem that every whisky aficionado is happy to have: so many amber-hued tipples, so little time. Don't just resign yourself to the fact that you can't possibly taste them all, though. Firstly, no one likes a quitter. And secondly — and more importantly — there's nothing to lose by giving your dram-drinking quest a red hot try.
Celebrating the annual occasion that is World Whisky Day, the Osbourne Hotel will be doing their bit to assist your noble endeavour, with six hours of sampling, sipping and drinking on the agenda from midday on Saturday, May 19. Plus, in welcome news if your love of the good stuff doesn't match your bank balance — tickets are only $15, which includes your first tasting of either scotch or bourbon.
There'll be a range of Australian, American, Canadian, Scottish and Irish varieties on hand, so you can enjoy both whisky and whiskey, with each brand coming up with their own cocktails as well. While you're there, you can also learn about the basics in small masterclasses. Yep, here, you'll drink, talk and breathe whisky all afternoon.
