Blind Whiskey Tasting

Recently the founding members of the Kansas City Cigar Club (KCCC) met here at MySideOfTheBar for a blind Whiskey tasting.

 KCC's Founding Members
I picked out 6 Whiskeys that covered practically the entire Whiskey World and a price range from about 16.00 - 200.00 USD a bottle.

The Line Up
Pendleton Rye
Tullamore Dew Irish Whisky
Kansas Most Wanted 
E.H. Taylor Small Batch Bourbon
Crown Royal XR
Glenfarclas 12 yr Single Malt Scotch

We were served a half ounce pour by our hostess Central Patti and took a few notes and ranked them in order from favorite to least favorite.

I have to say there were some very interesting rankings and observatations as I choose the Bourbon as my number one and I am a Bourbon drinker.

I gave the Scotch it's highest ranking and I also drink a lot of Scotch

J.W. had the Irish Whisky as his number one and he drinks a lot of Irish Whiskey.

The Most Wanted ranked much higher than I would have guessed.

All in all we had an excellent time and I want to thank all that attended with a special thanks to Central Patti for serving as the Hostess.
