So a last minute invite from Praxis PR to them at the Turf Lounge 330 Bay st here i got to try the latest premium whiskey to come out of Alberta Premium DarkHorse whiskey it was very smooth dark then normal
Upon arriving to the event & entering i realized it was a sit down dinner event which was cool
picture of menu & was served a pre-dinner cocktail it was quite good it was ginger ale & DarkHorse with some bitter & orange peel I met the usual suspects & some other new people and took our seatsat nearby table as we sat down there was 2 classes of whiskey the original alberta premium & new DarkHorse one much darker then original
There was a speaker to explain the differences between the two whiskeys
As we first sat down we were presented with 2 glasses of there Alberta the Original & the new dark horse & the night menu.
Then after chatting with table guests first course arrived and each course was paired with a drink/cocktail infused with dark horse whiskey
Our first course & paring was Majestic Prince Cocktail – Dark Horse, Lemon-Ginger Juice & Pineapple served with Whisky Roast Beets w/ chili & vanilla panna cotta, gooseberry compote.
Also during the night the Chief came up & explained what was presented also between courses we were given a chance to bet on horses Through there onsite betting terminals which was cool as well
Our second course & paring was Cheval Noir Cocktail: Alberta Premium Dark Horse, maple spiced syrup & walnut bitters. Served w/ Lightly Smoked Alberta Beef Tenderloin w/ etuvee of autumn squash, wild mushroom & maple whisky jus.
Our Desert & last course was a Chocolate bar w/ Alberta Premium Dark Horse Creme Anglaise & coffee bubbles paired with the drink of Dark Horse, espresso, chocolate bitters & Galliano mixure.
