Back in June, I wrote about the Southern California Whiskey Club's tasting of Very Olde St. Nick Rye. Now they have set a date for part 2 o the meeting. On August 17, they'll be tasting the Very Olde St. Nick bourbons. Like the Rye, the Very Olde St. Nick series was bottled by the Van Winkles and then Kentucky Bourbon Distillers for the Japanese export market.
The lineup for the meeting will include:
- 8 year old, 90 proof
- Cask Lot No. 15, 107 proof
- 19 year old, 94 proof
- 22 year old, 81.2 proof
- 23 year old, 81.2 proof
- 24 year old, 81.2 proof
As with the rye tasting, its unlikely that a tasting like this will come around again anytime soon, so even if you're not in the Southern California area, you might want to consider attending.
