Congratulations goes out to Nicki Proulx, the winner of Expensive Taste’s 2016 Glass Turkey Draw. The winning ticket was sold by Expensive Taste member, Tom Suliman.
With proceeds from the draw a donation of $250 will be made in the name of Jacek Wyszynski to the Canadian Cancer Society, Kitchener Branch.
Thank you to all who supported the club and this worthwhile cause and to all those who did not win better luck next time!
Overall, I would say although Chivas is outside my top 10 in favourite brands, this 21 year-old Royal Salute satisfied the nostrils quite well on a warm summer evening. It was quite soft on the nose initially with what seemed to hint at a chocolatey (but not too sweet) sniff…. very inviting for a taste.
The palate felt like a party in the mouth with a wide variety of tastes ranging from creamy/fruity to a confirmation of the chocolatey/nutty nose.
The finish however disappointed for a blend, as a few flavours competed to make a lasting impression, but the dram lacked the necessary finishing time expected from a 21 year old.
Overall, it was an enjoyable experience, but other options exist for consuming multiple drams at this price point.
The Glass Turkey draw is occurring this Friday June 24th, so if you haven’t purchased your tickets for the draw you still have a few days to do so.
Please remember that Expensive Taste KW is supporting the KW Cancer Society by donating half of the proceeds from ticket sales to this very worthwhile cause.
The winner will be drawn at our regular club meeting this Friday and will be contacted immediately following the draw to be informed of the win. Grand Prize is a texas mickey of whisky of the winners choosing.
Let’s make this the best year ever for Glass Turkey and get the final push on for ticket sales.
I would like to personally thank all of those who have purchased their tickets already! We appreciate your support.
Expensive Taste KW President
