Whisky & BBQ

What happens when you combine BBQ and Whisky? 
Good things of course! 
I am very lucky to be part of a Whisky Trifecta on 3/19 at the Brass Rail in Hoboken, NJ. 
Gabe Erenzo, Distiller at Hudson Whiskey and Jim Patterson, Director of Business Development at the Whisky Guild, and I, will be sampling a total of 10 lovely whiskies to those in attendance.
In addition, these will all be paired with BBQ style hors d'oeuvres and platters.
I will be at the Balvenie table, pouring the Balvenie 12 Year Old Doublewood, the 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask, and the 15 Year Old Single Barrel.
Jim will be at the Glenfiddich table, pouring the Glenfiddich 12 Year Old, the 15 Year Old (one of my favorites), and the oldest whisky in attendance that night...the Glenfiddich 18.
Last but certainly not least, Hudson Whiskey Distiller Gabe will be pouring his Hudson Baby Bourbon, 4 Grain Bourbon, Manhattan Rye, and the Single Malt.
It should be an amazing time, and I can't wait.  Especially since guests will get a Bottle of Hudson Whiskey of their choice to bring home!
I understand that this post is a bit of shameless self promotion, but as fans of this site know, I am always Brand Neutral in my reviews and my tastes.  It is that integrity that has carried me this far.
With that, I humbly ask for your forgiveness...this just happens to be an event that is worthy of spreading the word about, and one that I can get behind!  (especially to my local NJ, NY and PA whisky lovers)
