Back again at one of my favorite scotch whiskey drinking pubs in the city. There is always something going on at the Caladonian, and one of my favorite events is the women and whiskey party. Tonight we are tasting a flight of Balvenie, it’s still a little too cold for the lush backyard patio but inside is just right. 150 + bottle of whiskey reflecting the flicker of warm candlelight set a casual charming mood for the evening. And, of course I had to order some snacks off Chef Sara Phillips authentic Scottish cuisine.
A large satisfying portion of chips slathered with curry sauce hit the table first, then piping hot kosher juicy pickles. Haggis fritters have a livery, gritty creamy texture. And a last min order of buttery smashed red skin potatoes are a delight. Service is gold – I felt like a part of the family.
