scotchby Andrew Chalk

Summer is over, you can tell by the number of wine and food events in town. The pace has definitely started to quicken. We will bring you only the crème de la crème and this week has three very special ones. All come Crave Recommended.

Starting this Friday September 13th Pappas Bros. Steakhouse will host a Glenfiddich Scotch Dinner. “What makes Friday night’s fine tasting experience so distinctive is its extended samplings of the world’s most awarded single malt in addition to a four course meal. Also on the invite list is host Glenfiddich Ambassador David Allardice, well known for his knowledge and expertise of this dignified spirit. From Glenfiddich 12 year to the Malt Masters Edition, this wide assortment and range of drink is perfectly paired with delicious complimentary cuisine.
