How do you pronounce Islay?

Eye-luh. Not Iz-lay. This is an area of Scotland, which is significant region for its peaty, smoky, maritime style single malts. However, I tend to favor Talisker, even if I find the others quite exceptional depending upon the cask.

Rogers Park Hosts Single Malt Tasting for The Balvenie March 7, 2009

The Century Public House at the Morse Theater on Morse in conjunction with Sam Simmons will host a Balvenie Tasting Single Malt Scotch Dinner on Wednesday, March 11, 2009. Sam is the Balvenie Ambassador for the United States. He has a wealth of knowledge not only on Balvenie, but many other distilleries. Those who live in Rogers Park should not miss out on this opportunity due to Sam's wealth of knowledge and the significant bourbon and single malt selections at CPH.
David Stewart serves as the malt master for over twenty years. He has helped The Balvenie develop a significant reputation among Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distilleries.

I will add more information to this post as the information is released from Devin along with the cost. Those who are interested who know the distillery should be in for a surprise. Go to to directly contact Century Public House.
