"Scotch Single Malt Whisky: The Taste, History and Mystique"

A Scotch Single Malt Whisky TasteA twenty-minute, narrated slide program entitled, "Scotch Single Malt Whisky: The Taste, History and Mystique," will be presented. This program includes the most definitive photographic study that has been created depicting the Scotch Single Malt Whisky production process. Dr. McCoy has made fourteen trips to Scotland, spent up to a week at one distillery, toured and made photographs at many other distilleries and has spent over ten years of research in creating this program.

A taste comparison and informal discussion of seven or eight Scotch single malt whiskies that represent all of the traditional geographic Scotch Single Malt Whisky production regions in Scotland. Also included, will be Scotch single malts that have been matured in plain, sherry and bourbon oak casks – as well as malts that have been matured in a combination of all of these casks. (One and one-half hours)


"Faces and Facets of the Scotch Single Malt" – Part One


The presentation and tasting of two Scotch single malts, of different ages, from each of four different distilleries. Discussion of the maturation process of the Scotch Single Malt Whisky and factors, including the effects of geography, cask type and length of maturation is included. (Duration: One and one-half hours)

"Faces and Facets of the Scotch Single Malt" – Part Two

The presentation, with pedigree, of eight Independent Bottlings of the Scotch Single Malt Whisky. Included will be single cask, cask-strength, non chill-filtered and/or official commercial bottlings of these Scotch single malts. A tasting and discussion will follow. (Duration:
One and one-half hours)


"The International Scotch Single Malt Whisky Institute"


This comprehensive experience includes all of the preceding tastings conducted over a three period format. It may be conducted over a longer period of time at hotels, recreational resorts, on ocean liner cruises and include tours of local areas and topics of interest. It may be included as part of other events at lodges, hotels and conventions.

A Dram of History

Combining his interest in history, his extensive knowledge of Scotch Single Malt Whisky, (the "original" whisky), The Scotch Doc provides this "special version" of "Scotch Single Malt Whisky: The Taste, History and Mystique," to a limited number of clients. About eight different Scotch single malts, representing all of the official Scotland geographic whisky producing regions, will be tasted. The highlight will be when the fully-kilted "Scotch Doc" gingerly retrieves one of the delicate whiskey decanters, containing a worthy Scotch single malt, from the approximately 250 year-old Revolutionary Officer’s Liquor Cabinet and pours (very carefully, mind you) each participant a dram from one of the approximately 250 year-old whiskey decanters.

Formal or Informal Personal Appearance

With this format, the clad-in-kilt, or casually dressed, Scotch Doc’s responsibilities may include bar tending duties pertaining to the Scotch single malt and informally discussing The Scotch single malt’s production and characteristics with guests. The variety and number of Scotch single malts utilized will be determined by the client and Dr. McCoy. It is an ideal "Tasteful Addition" for your next private party. (Duration: As per contract)
