The Shores Resort and Spa Sip and Savor Series during bike week this year featured The Macallan Scotches for tasting. If you don’t know anything about scotches The Macallan is the world’s most collectible scotch, the oldest scotch that we know of that has a license to distill.
On an incredibly gorgeous night overlooking the ocean with an intimate setting the dinner began.
Our first course was a Delectable Bacon Wrapped Honey Drizzled Shrimp it paired with
the 12 Year Double Cask
Clear and with a hint of burnt orange on the nose and vanilla on the palate.
The second course was a
Braised Duck Leg, absolutely remarkable and reminiscent of Bobby Flay with the Smoked Corn Risotto.
This paired with the 12 Year Sherry Oak Cask golden and a lingering fruit, oak and vanilla finish.
With the Acoustic sounds of Dave Alexander in the background the night had just begun and out came our third course.
It was a Smoked Pork chop with an unbelievable kick ass Mole sauce that will even make the best Southwestern Cuisine fans take notice.
It paired perfectly with the
Triple Cask 15 Year Matured Scotch.
Color of wheat with the sun shining on it, incredibly balanced, chocolate, orange, rosey, spicy. Our pick for the night.
We finished the evening with my favorite desert a Creme Brulee, almost fainting,
I sipped the 4th paired Scotch an 18 Year Old Sherry Oak Cask
A darker clear with noticeable ginger and oak.
Incredibly rich finish.
The series continues all year, once a month at The Shores Resort and Spa with the next date being April 24th that will feature French Wines
