The Rye Tasting Room Takes Flight at Il Ponticello

Experience and discover the world's best single malts one shot at a time... 

Take a flight of premium single malt at the new Rye Tasting Room, a four shot sampler of the best curated selections from Scotland, Japan and the US, and discover the subtle nuances and character of each spirit. 

Located inside Il Ponticello Bar and Italian Restaurant, the soon to open Rye Tasting Room exudes a certain exclusivity yet one feels right at home in its elegant yet masculine interiors. And if you enjoy a good whiskey, you found yourself a second home, right here at the Rye Tasting Room.

The Rye Tasting Room offers several Whiskey Tasting Flights or samplers with its extensive selection of premium spirits. That night, we sampled the Glenlivet Let Die, with shots of Glenlivet 12, 15, 18, and 21; and the Samurai Sortie with Hibiki 12, Yamazaki 12, Taketsuru 12, and Hakushu 12. 

The Glenlivet Shot Sampler perfectly showcased the wide range of flavor and character of the iconic Scottish brand, with subtle levels of smoothness and smokiness intensifying as you progress up the selection of 12, 15, 18, and 21 year old variants. In contrast, the Samurai Sortie, which featured the very best of Japanese premium single malts, highlighted the distinct whisper of sweetness in each sip. Each Whiskey Tasting Flight allows you to discover the elegant nuances of each spirit, and a better understanding and appreciation of the brand. The Rye Tasting Room offers several Whiskey Tasting Flights, ranging from "Flight School", "Top Gun", and "Aviator", featuring the world's best spirits. And what goes best with premium Scottish and Japanese single malt, or maybe some rye whiskey? Beef and pork. And the Tasting Room has that pretty much covered with their own line of signature pub grub, or as they describe it, "booze-friendly cuisine." Take their Makers Edition 4-Cheese Wagyu Burger (P 360), a 1/3 lb Wagyu beef patty draped in a homemade recipe cheese sauce topped with lettuce and tomatoes on a soft and buttery brioche bun, served with a side of ale-battered fries... 

...and the Dry-Cured Roasted Bacon Slab (P 420), seared and roasted 14-day dry-cured, hang-dried, whole roasted Bacon Slab, with mustard and caramelized onion compote, both deserving another round of toasts with the Rye Tasting Room's extensive and premium selection of single malts. The Rye tasting Room also offers other tasting samplers, the Spirits Tasting Flights, featuring their premium selection of vodka, gin, rum, and tequila.  Ready for a flight? Recalibrate your bearings and head on over to the Rye Tasting Room,  opening soon at Il Ponticello Bar and Italian Restaurant. For more on Il Ponticello Bar and Italian Restaurant, check out my previous post here at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-heats-on-with-il-ponticellos-new.html.
