Organised by Duncan Graham, November 6th's program included informative and entertaining presentations about excellent scotch whiskies - including a great talk by special guest Iain Lindsay OBE, British Ambassador to Hungary.
Firstly the Cardhu 12 year old, an easy going Speysider with flavours of honeyed flapjacks, was presented by Tim O’Sullivan, followed by the Lowland style Glenkinchie 12 year old presented by funny man Patrick McMenamin. Next the more complex, rich and smokey Clynelish 14 year old was presented by His Excellency Iain Lindsay, then to perfectly round off a great evening the Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve was well presented by Csaba Gulas of Diageo.
The drinks were accompanied by hors d’oeuvres, including a creative one with haggis, and a charity raffle supporting the Hungarian Rugby Association.
