Be a part of the worldâ€™s first ever whisky book review/twitter tasting. Social media are
changing the way we read and the way we taste whisky. Weâ€™ve decided to integrate the
two! Each Sunday for the next four weeks we will review several chapters from the book
Canadian Whisky: The Portable Expert and discuss them on Twitter. And we will do this
while we taste a representative whisky from that chapter.
If you wish to comment on the book, interact with author, Davin de Kergommeaux, or discuss a Canadian whisky you are tasting, please join us each Sunday at 3:00 pm Eastern time, on Twitter at #DavinTT.
The twitter reviews and tastings begin this Sunday, May 5th at 3:00pm EST when we will be talking about chapters 10 â€“ 13. Davin will join us to answer questions, and contribute to discussion among the participants, etc.
After chatting for about 30 minutes about 15 participants from around the world will open a mystery bottle that we have sent to them. You didnâ€™t get a bottle? Feel free to join in anyway. The more the merrier. After tasting the sample and talking about it weâ€™ll reveal which distillery it came from and which whisky we tasted. Sound like fun?
This Sunday weâ€™ll begin with chapters 10 â€“ 13. Then, Sunday May 12 th we will discuss chapters 14 â€“ 17; Sunday May 19th, chapters 18 â€“ 21; and Sunday May 26th, chapters 22 - 25.
We invite the whisky bloggers among us to blog about the book, the experience, the whiskies and/or Davin. Let the fun begin!
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with @WhiskyLassie on twitter.
