CHENNAI: It is not everyday that one gets to taste a 25-year-old whiskey. And when one does, it is only appropriate that one appreciates it to the fullest. Whiskey connoisseur Sandeep Arora will be at the Park Hyatt Chennai on November 28 to do just that. “Participants will get to taste five whiskeys aged between 12 and 25, sourced from different parts of Scotland. The whiskeys are not restricted to one particular company, thus offering a varied taste — from robust and fruity flavoured to hot and smoky,” he says.

Sandeep says that during the course of dinner, one would be able to understand and appreciate each whiskey. “We would be doing a 360 degree round of each one — focusing on the type, food to be paired, its history, and the general experience of enjoying it. This is not done very often. I want to showcase whiskey in a different light, it isn’t just about ice, whiskey, soda and water, it is more about how you want to enjoy and pair it with the appropriate food,” he says.

Known for organising sessions which help people discover the right match of alcohol for their bites, Sandeep has a different plan this time. “We are not going to do food pairing much this time, but will be concentrating on core whiskey tasting. We are going to focus on 40 minutes of whiskey tasting. This will be followed by a very interesting food menu — from Indian barbecues to Western grills,” he says.

Whiskey Ambassador Sandeep Arora will be organising the Whiskey Dinner at Park Hyatt Chennai on November 28.
