    2019 Rare Whisk(e)y Raffle

    Your favorite Saturday of the year is quickly approaching! The Rare Whisk(e)y Raffle is almost here and we are busy putting the finishing touches on what is sure to be a fantastic afternoon full of drams, friends, and, possibly, a rare and collectible bottle of the distiller’s art for you to take home! 

    The question to ask yourself is, did you accumulate enough tickets by purchasing Gordon’s Single Barrel bottlings in 2019 to snag that bottle of Pappy?  If not, have no fear. You can accumulate raffle tickets under your customer account online and at any of our 5 area locations until December 1st

    After December 1st, your only opportunity to accumulate more tickets is through purchasing Gordon's Private Barrels in-store ONLY at Gordon's DTX up until December 7th at 3:30PM! Please see below an important list of dates and guidelines and as aways Happy Hunting!

    IMPORTANT DATES TO KNOW

    SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1st: This is your LAST DAY to purchase any private barrels and accumulate tickets to your profile at 4 of our 5 Gordon's locations (Waltham Main, Waltham Moody, Newton & Watertown) or through our web store. The only exception is Gordon's DTX where after December 1st you can receive physical raffle tickets for any in-store purchases of Gordon's Private Barrels to put towards the December 7th raffle.

    MONDAY, DECEMBER 2nd: Every customer who earned raffle tickets will receive an email detailing the number of tickets earned during the course of 2019. 
    If you 
    CAN ATTEND the December 7th Raffle at our Downtown Crossing location, you will receive your physical tickets upon arrival at DTX so that you can allocate them across one or multiple bottle buckets.
    If you 
    CANNOT ATTEND the Raffle, but would still like to participate you can reply to the December 2nd email with how you would like your tickets allocated. For example, if you earned 20 tickets and want a chance at the Pappy 20yr and 15yr, simply reply with “I’d like 10 tickets in the Pappy 20yr bucket and 10 tickets in the Pappy 15yr bucket.” We’ll take care of the rest! 

    SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7th: The Rare Whiskey Raffle will be held at our Downtown Crossing location from 2-4 PM. Our pre-raffle tasting will begin promptly at 2pm. As always, we plan on popping some rare and exclusive gems so, you won’t want to miss it!

  4. The Whisky Battles Seminar Series

    The Whisky Battles Seminar Series

    Gordon's, and Taylor Whisky Co. are proud to announce an epic 3-part seminar series, The Whisky Battles where your favorite distilleries go head to head! 

    Pablo says: It brings me double pleasure hosting these seminars with Nick Taylor: on one hand, I admire his knowledge of the distilling process and his never-ending supply of whisky stories; on the other hand, I usually have fun with him. That's why we came up with three blind tastings that will feature single malt battles. Nick and I will discuss why we think one or the other distillery or expression is better, then, a panel of expert tasters (a.k.a. "you") will decide which one wins!

    Nick says: It brings me triple pleasure hosting these seminars with Pablo. First, I love blind tastings because the sensory experience of whisky is almost always clouded by the brand name and what expectations we have based on who made the whisky and where it came from. Blind tastings negate that effect. Second, whisky battles are a blast because they give you an opportunity to explore the nuances of what you like in a concentrated and focused way. And third, Pablo is a delightful human being and I plan on crushing him with my whisky intellect! Mooohahaha!

    Disclaimer: each distillery is represented by three contenders. Both Pablo and Nick will lineup three battles and share some information about the distilleries and expressions. Tasters won’t know which of the six expressions they are trying, until all battles are finished. Taking notes is highly suggested.



    Series II: Balvenie vs. Balblair ($15.00)

    Tuesday, December 10th from 7:00-8:30PM

    Two of the most praised distilleries from Scotland's Speyside and Highlands go to battle as each reflect the utmost dedication to their whole range of expressions. On one hand, Balvenie, one of the few still using floor malting and with single barrel editions in a core range. Those who visited the distillery know that everything is about the details with no rush. On the other hand, Balblair is one of the few distilleries that do not require their distillery manager to make quota (produce a certain amount of volume) at the expense of quality. The fermentation is long. The distillation is slow and the aging is extensive. Balblair is the epitome of time equals quality.

    Featuring:
    Balvenie: DoubleWood 12yo DoubleWood 17yo, Single Barrel 15yo
    Balblair: 2005, 1999, 1989

    Purchase Tickets-Session II


    Series III: Bunnahabhain vs. Old Pulteney ($15.00)

    Tuesday, December 17th from 7:00-8:30PM

    On one corner of this sea monsters battle between Islay and Coastal Highland we have Bunnahabhain, responsible for one of the mildest whiskies of Islay, but still with an imposing influence of sea air and occasional, subtle use of peat. They know how to take advantage of oak for the most spectacular finishes and a rich, earthy, creamy flavor in their not-so-basic core range. On the other hand, Old Pulteney, mythical creature of a fishermen town is known for its unique location, quirky stills and its distinctive warehouses. While most salty, oily whiskies get their maritime character from the peat they burn, Old Pulteney gets it from its location and warehousing, meaning all the ocean character and none of the smoke.

    Featuring:
    Bunnahabhain: Stiuireadair, 12yo, 18yo
    Old Pulteney: Huddart, 12yo, 18yo

    Purchase Tickets-Session III


    This 3-part series is a truly unique opportunity to revisit some old-time favorites side by side and rediscover the magic in them. We hope you join us and enjoy the experience as much as we will. Receive 10% off event night purchases of all bottles from the featured distilleries.

    Sláinte mhath!
