Scotch whiz Brad Jarvis hosts this Irish whiskey tasting. Sample styles from south and north Ireland and find out what "peated single malts" means (malt that has been smoked over burning peat, FYI). Favor wine over whiskey? The Second Glass is holding a "Green Wine" crash course at Downtown Wine and Spirits the same night. Learn about Irish-owned vineyards, try organic wine, and discover vinho verde ("green wine") from Portugal.
