We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organise and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
In the early evening hours of this hallowed Wednesday, a Tragically Hip Cult of 36 sinners, with a collective drinking weight of over 7, pounds, met on this inaugural night of nights, to witness Original Sin with a Titanic Talisker Tasting let that sink in.
The lineup was designed to make even the most squirrelly-headed Westcoast whisky drinker rethink NAS whisky, and bring our newly-founded membership to full Sin.
Curt talked about the direction of the new sinDicate club; a club where members want to gather regularly, not just cherry pick events to attend from a series of tastings; quality of whisky is foremost with six to eight bottles per tasting.
Capping membership at 50, 44 members to date with a waiting list thereafter, guests can attend once but by invitation only. Under the watchful and all seeing eye of the Manitoba Sauron, the club tasted the following eight expressions of Talisker, intertwined with the history of the Distillery and club business: Great intro to Talisker.

The perfect bottling age for this whisky, just like the Lagavulin 16, Loch Dhu 10 or Bowmorethe Talisker at 18 years is truly at its best. I have loved this expression from the time I was a young wizard traveling middle earth. The fruits, pepper, liquorice, smoke, orange and tidal flotsam are in balance and taste sublime.
Please, no more Vikings riding Unicorns or spend it like Beckham, rich grain sucking sports stars. This version is at the crossroads of age.
It still retains the pepper smoke, lemon and maritime favors, but in lessor amounts while letting the sweet fruit notes say more.
To drink and appreciate a Talisker 30 is a rare privilege, but to drink it with a group of like-minded whisky nerds is beyond words. Big thanks to our President. You really do complete us!
