Unbeknownst to many bourbon lovers, St Paul's Cathedral in London forms the backdrop to a carefully concealed caged wall of whiskey fit for a Bluegrass King! How such an incredible collection of American, Scotch and Japanese whisky had managed to fly under the radar for so long is a mystery worthy of its own Dan Brown novel but that all changed once the British Bourbon Society got on the scene for their inaugural tasting event! Barbecoa is rightly known as a top-notch BBQ eatery but, ever since the British Bourbon Society got their grubby mitts on their heavy set whiskey tumblers, Barbecoa is finally getting recognition for its mind-blowing inventory of liquid gold!
BBS organised a paired tasting dinner to showcase to our members the very best of Barbecoa's whiskey collection. Against the welcome backdrop of delicious, hickory glazed meats, the whiskey tasting highlights included Barbecoa's very own Elijah Craig 12 Year Old Single Barrel pick, Buffalo Trace Antique Collection Sazerac 18 Year Old, Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Old, Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 Year Old, Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 23 Year Old, Charbay 3rd Release and, last but no means least, the legendary Karuizawa 1967 42 Year Old. Special thanks to Spencer Large and Isabelle Denison of Barbecoa for helping to make this spectacular event happen! The first star was paved in BBS' walk of bourbon fame.
