Join the Whisky-Online Auctions team and our special guest star Lee 'Connas' Connor for a three-part series of First Cask whisky tastings hosted on Zoom. Each event will feature seven rare vintage drams bottled over 20 years ago. This exciting line-up has been selected from Whisky-Online Auctions’ private stock especially for this unique series of virtual whisky tastings.
The tastings will take place on the following dates:
Virtual Whisky Tasting Part 1: 26th March 2021 7.30pm GMT £84
Virtual Whisky Tasting Part 2: 23rd April 2021 7.30pm BST £60
Virtual Whisky Tasting Part 3: 14th May 2021 7.30pm BST £100
You don't have to join all three tastings, but if you do want to take part we recommend securing your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
All 21 First Cask whiskies chosen for this one-off series of tastings were originally released by a little-known independent bottler called Direct Wines (better known for supplying wine rather than whisky, as you might have guessed), who bottled a staggering array of vintage whiskies in the nineties and noughties under the First Cask label... but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Find out more about First Cask’s history on the night…
