We were recently invited to challenge our taste buds, and all of our senses in a fierce competition to recreate Scotland’s finest blended Scotch Whisky, all in the hopes of being crowned the “Master Blender.” The Famous Grouse treated us to an intimate creative tasting and blending session led by Brand Ambassador Marc Laverdiere at The Caledonian on College Street.

Armed with nothing but our palates, noses and half a dozen unidentified Scotch Whiskies, we had to recreate  the complex and beloved profile of the Famous Grouse. It was definitely a fun experience, Marc was as helpful as he could be, but let me tell you recreating The Famous Grouse Whisky is quite the challenge!

So did I bring Fame or Shame to Scotland’s most loved Scotch Whisky? I’d like to say I did an awesome job… I didn’t win, but if you ask me my creation tasted exactly like it… kinda. I’m not a Whisky drinker (I know I say this all the time), so I’m always afraid and excited when I’m invited to an event that involves me drinking Whisky, but I was given some great advice by one of the attendees who say to drink a different Whisky everyday and I’ll definitely find one that I like…I’m not sure how good that’ll be for me in the long run… hmmmmm.

After we were done recreating or rather attempting to recreate the Famous Grouse Whisky, we were treated to a lovely dinner of smoked salmon and these AMAZING potatoes, Scotch Eggs (which I loooove) and another Whisky tasting. We definitely ate, drank and were very merry, and we also learned a great deal about Scotch! It was a great night icon smile Event LOVE: #BlendSomethingFamous with @thefamousgrouse
