2019 Whisky Tasting
The Java St Andrew Society held its annual Whisky Tasting event at Fez Kinara on 20th September 2019. Despite the terrible traffic making access difficult, over 70 people turned up to enjoy an excellent selection of 11 malts complemented by an Indian/Thai buffet and other refreshments to keep everyone happy.
As usual we ran our blind tasting competition with contestants asked to correctly identify 7 of the malts on offer. This year we had a clear winner with 5 correctly identified so congratulations to Pak Irwan, sat on the left in the middle photo above. Our winner received a bottle of John Walker Gold Label Reserve, kindly provided by Diageo who along with McLarens, The RIO Club and our Committee Members generously provided the Whiskies for the event.
Thank you to our hardworking barmen on the evening, John Brown, Mark Brown and Andy Abram, who ensured that everyone got to taste the full collection on offer. Our appreciation also to the management team at Fez Kinara for their support in setting up the venue and providing the support team for the evening.
