The Spirit World reigned Supreme with Mad Mixologist and Halloween!

The Wine Ladies explore great Halloween-inspired cocktails with Mad Mixologist Dean Serneels and Armando Russo of Tappo Restaurant and Wine Bar

Having enjoyed a fantastic Halloween the night before, the theme continued the next day on the radio show as the topic of the morning was all about Spirits! However we weren’t really talking about the spirit world but in fact a spirited discussion was held that day all about the spirit, Whiskey!

Dean Serneels otherwise known as the “Mad Mixologist” was in studio and brought along a ghost and a goblin of his own, his son Ryan and daughter Megan. Much too their delight they put on the official headsets and microphones and enjoyed the experience of being live on the air. Also in studio was Armando Russo proprietor of the fabulous Tappo Restaurant & Wine Bar located in the historic Distillery District in Toronto. On the phone all the way from Vancouver was John Malloy, the Jameson Brand Ambassador who got up extra early to call in to the radio show to talk about his passion whiskey!

Several weeks earlier Tappo Restaurant & Wine Bar hosted the Jameson Whiskey tasting and served delightful appetizers that matched perfectly with the whiskey. Armando explained that smoky style food like Salmon is an excellent match for whiskey. Armando Russo and Shane Corson (formerly a power forward with the Leafs) are partners and make sure there is always a constant with the food, wine and design and all are thoughtfully presented.

Jameson Reserve Whiskey… Too Special To Reserve

Although we are known as The Wine Ladies and are partial to anything and everything to do with the grape, we like to venture out from time to time to enjoy other fine beverages life has to offer. So when were invited to a very exclusive tasting of Jameson Irish Whiskey we decided to give it a shot!

This fabulous afternoon set in The Tappo Restaurant & Wine Bar in the historic Distillery District provided the perfect setting to what was to be a very special whiskey tasting indeed. Upon entering the room we were instantly charmed and delighted by the old stone walls, high ceilings and chandeliers. The tables were set with crisp white table cloths which provided the perfect canvas for the multiple glasses of the golden coloured whiskey we were about to explore.

All the way from Ireland the tasting was led by one of the four Jameson Master Blenders. Dave Quinn known as “Master of Smoothness” charmed us with his Irish accent, sense of humour, passion and in depth knowledge about whiskey. One by one he led us through the entire range of the Jameson Reserve collection ending up with the Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve. With only 8 bottles in all of Ontario and at $399.95 per bottle we knew that the Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve was something very rare and special.

Dave Quinn explained to us what made these whiskeys extra special.

High Pot Still Content- All whiskeys permitted to bear the Reserve name must firstly have a high pot still content, courtesy of the yeast fermented mash of malted and unmalted barley produced in traditional copper pots.
Limited Stocks – All Reserve whiskeys are significantly aged and are limited in stock.
Hand Picked Casks – The final element of a true reserve whiskey is all about the casks and the distillates used.

Together these 3 criteria exert a varying but essential influence depending on the type of whiskey being made, allowing it to develop into something that is more than the sum of its parts.

The Jameson Rarest Vintage Reserve

Brought together by the four Master Blenders, it contains some of the oldest grains and rarest pot still whiskeys available. The fortified wine casks used for maturing one of the pot still whiskeys with port pipes, gives it a glorious fruit rich character. The combination of the oldest whiskeys and the ageing process has delivered a supremely lavish taste experience, which brings with it depth, complexity and intriguing berry fruit notes. Available at the LCBO for $399.95 per bottle.
