Scotch is the new black?

My birthday was this past weekend, and my husband sent me to a fabulous food and wine festival at the Mount Washington Hotel with great friends. A side event that was quite popular, and quite unfamiliar to me, was a scotch tasting? It was held in a masculine lounge, with lots of burgundy tones and sparkling glasses. And the men, and few women there, got very excited over the 15+ scotches presented. Is it me, or do you just drink scotch by the fire in the winter time to warm up? But as they say, when it rains, it pours and this next event is the third scotch tasting opportunity I have seen in the last 3 days. So it must be covered, and in case it's trendy, you heard it here first!

This Thursday, Nov. 13 at the Mystic Aquarium, will be an innovative Scotch tasting featuring 10 varieties, accompanied by trays of hors d'oeuvres. Yes, I did say it was at the aquarium - perhaps the tie-in will come when you get there, but for now, think seals, sharks and scotch. Tasting runs from 6-9:00 p.m. and costs only $50. For more information call 860-572-5955.
