Whisky Tasting

I'm trying to set up a Whiskey Tasting for my Husband's birthday, I've checked a few bars no one seems to do it, or failing that we could get someone in home- HELP!

  1. Joe Howell, the owner of Federal Wine & Spirits, may have a recommendation for someone who could do an in-home tasting.

    1. Whiskeyri holds whiskey tastings at various bars and restaurants in the Providence area. Depending on where you live, Providence is an easy ride down Route 95 South.

      I grew up in Boston and now live in the Providence area.
      Some people are aghast that I drive home after a family get together in Boston, especially if it is late at night. I assure them it is only a 45-minlute drive. Something about crossing a state line conjures up great distances.

      Whiskyri's next tasting is this month at the lovely Waterman Grille located on the Seekonk River in Providence.

      The December Whiskyri tasting was held at the recently opened New Harvest Coffee and Spirits. This elegant little establishment has a fine selection of whiskies. It bills itself as a speakeasy in the evening.

      1. Whiskey Guild has a tasting cruise every year.....don't know if that meets your timetable though:

        1. Citizen has one of the best Whiskey selections in town, check with them.

            Yes, it looks like they offer "flights" for tasting that change weekly. Thanks for pointing this out, as I may have to investigate too! Looks like Hops and Scotch in Coolidge Corner may also do this.

          2. Cambridge center for adult ed has several whiskey courses on rotation. My wife and I did an American whiskey course a few years ago, and they also do a variety of scotch courses.
