Virtual Whiskey Tasting

British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia Virtual Whiskey Tasting

On July 28, BABCPHL members gathered to learn the science of whiskey while virtually networking with international executives from various industry sectors.  Participants analyzed, examined and tried to understand the rich, complicated taste and aroma of five different types of whiskey.

Whiskey Selection:

  • Johnnie Walker Black 12 YO
  • The Glenlivet 12 YO
  • The Macallan Double Cask 12 YO
  • Sheep Dip Islay Blended Malt
  • The Feathery Blended Malt

Whiskey Tasting was the second of three BABCPHL Summer Series networking events held by the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia. The events were complimentary however, in light of the current crises, we suggested attendees, if able, to consider making a $10 donation to Project Home when registering.

This event was hosted by Lew Bryson. Lew has been writing about beer and spirits full-time since 1995. He was the managing editor of Whisky Advocate magazine from 1996 through 2015. He is currently a Senior Drinks Writer for the Daily Beast, and also writes regularly for Artisan Spirit and Bourbon+, and has a beer and whiskey blog, Seen Through A Glass. Bryson is the author of two books: Tasting Whiskey (Storey Publishing, 2014), a broad survey of the whiskeys of the world, their history and manufacture; and Whiskey Master Class (Harvard Common Press, 2020), a deep dive on all aspects of whiskey flavor creation. He was selected as the 2008 winner of the Michael Jackson Beer Journalism Award (Trade and Specialty Beer Media). He has served as a judge for both the American Craft Spirits Association and the Great American Beer Festival. Lew Bryson lives north of Philadelphia with his wife Cathy, and Pippin, a feisty Welsh Corgi.
