I am back to Porta at Park Hotel Clark Quay for Porta X Auchentoshan exclusive 3-course whisky dinner tasting. This 3-course whisky dinner, where Porta specially pairs Executive Chef Alex Phan’s creative signatures with a range of Glaswegian Scotch expressions-uniquely, completely triple distilled helmed by Auchentoshan’s brand ambassador Jamey Merkel.
The whisky pairing dinner is available on 14 June – 16 June 2019 at 6.30pm. The dinner is priced at S$76.00++ per adult ( with whisky pairing) and S$58.00++ (without whisky pairing). And Jamey Merkel, the ambassador of Auchentoshan will be making his appearance on 14 June to share more about the triple distilled whisky.
Here is the 3- Course Menu:
Home-smoked Trout in Thai lime and Granny Smith Apple X The Auchentoshan 12 Year-old Single Malt
The whisky adored for its caramel, sweet, toasted oak and citrus flavour notes pairs well with the smoked trout in Thai lime and Granny Smith apple. The zesty elements enhanced the notes of whisky flavours. I enjoyed this first course dish.
Dish of the Forest X The Auchentoshan 18 Year-old Single Malt
Next, the Auchentoshan 18 year-old Single Malt adored for its oak, caramel, vanilla and nutty flavour notes. This is just perfect to go with the Sous-vide tender pigeon, with earthy beet and grainy quinoa. The sous-vide pigeon has a strong livery taste and the whisky flavour is perfect marriage. If pigeon is not your preferred dish, you can opt for pork dish instead.
Home-baked thyme cookie with blackberry compote, fresh whole blackberries and aged balsamic X The Auchentoshan Three Wood Single Malt
The Three Wood Single Malt is matured in 3 different casks from American bourbon to Spanish Oloroso Sherry and finally Pedro Ximenez Sherry caks. I still can taste the oakiness of the whisky without it being masked by the sweetness of the dessert.
It is interesting to learn about whisky pairing and each characteristics of each style of the whisky throughout the 3-course tasting session. Mark your calendar and come explore the wonderful and diverse knowledge about whisky pairing.
