New Amsterdam Vodka, not actually from Amsterdam but from New York. “What?” I hear you all cry. Yes its true. The name New Amsterdam Vodka comes from the big american city New York which was known as New Amsterdam before being renamed New York. Now that we have all that complicatedness out of the way lets get down to business.
On Tuesday after my exciting tasting of Cattier Saphir Champagne I was treated to something else special. On the shelf of the restaurant Jun Ming Xuan, behind a couple of bottles was a quarter bottle of something unexpected.
On Tuesday Night I was lucky enough to try something I might otherwise have never tried. I went to one of my local Chinese restaurants Jun Ming Xuan with a couple of friends. One of them had just bought a bottle of Cattier Saphire Champagne and we popped it in an ice bucket to cool.
I’ve talked about this whiskey a lot and finally I’ve got round to doing a tasting. This I must say has to be one of my favorite whiskeys. It’s one I recommend if anyone is looking for a special gift or just something to display on the bar. Sorry not too many images on this one. I did the tasting in my PJ’s in front of the TV.
