Whisky Explorers Club’s First Mystery Whiskies Arrive

Intriguing, no? Four mini bottles encased in black velvet and each a sticker with a serial number on it (one upside down, just to mix it up).

What are you drinking? Who knows. You’ll have to play the Whisky Explorers Club IQ Game to try to figure it out, using your membership code and the product code on the bottle to walk through questions about the nose, the body, and the palate of the whiskey. Eventually you get to guess what exactly it is (out of five choices). I’m happy to report that on round one I actually got it right (though I won’t give it away here in case you’re drinking the same thing).

Still, looking forward to the other three mystery bottles that For Scotch Lovers sends out (one shipment arrives every two months), and seeing if I can keep my record solid!

    Hopin’ FedSux delivers my shipment tomorrow! Those are cool bottles and I didn’t expect that at all. Congrats on your record but ahem, Drinkhacker, you should score an A. :)

    Ry.

    How large are those bottles? They look like .375’s to me. I’m hesitant to join if the bottles are really just half-pints or something.

    ah nevermind, they have it posted on the site now as 50 mL bottles

    These are 50ml minis. It’s $120 a year for 24 mini bottles… if you got full 750s, well, you’d be getting the deal of the century…

    hah, yes indeed that would be! As is, it’s a good deal variety-wise but I think 50 ml mini’s might not be worth it.

    I think it’s a pretty good deal. It comes out to about $75/750ml which isn’t cheap but isn’t exorbitant either – especially if you wind up with a few gems in the bunch.

    $5/drink seems OK to me – I get to try thing I might not otherwise, and it’s cheaper than a neat whisky at most bars!

    I have mine and have not cracked them open yet – planning to next week.
