Just got home around 11pm. Wow, first time to joined a liquor tasting event. We arrived late at Wine Museum in Pasay City around 8pm yesterday, good to be late than nothing (pero kulelat parin). We saw Mhel of blankPixel at the entrance with her friend (Lady in red), we approached her and greet. Ok then, we straight ahead to registration booth to signup, then taking pictures at the tarpaulin with background of Benmore Scotch Whiskey (kasi naharang kaming ng mamang photographer). We thought we were not late because few people were inside the venue (yun sa bar sa first level). We’re wrong, the event was happening at the 2nd level. Follow bloggers like Jeman Villanueva of Orange Magazine TV, Myke Rome waiting for us, (ang aga daw niya dumating sa venue), Florencio Jusay Jr., Myke Soon, Marjorie Pineda, Ning Buning, WTF, dami nila basta head count 40+ bloggers, (Hwag sana magtampo kung hindi ko nabanggid names ninyo mga blogger friends) Ok, they done with their dinner and waiting to start the liquor tasting. Yeah we were very late. Huhuhu, but the party was not yet started.
So we took our dinner, then I immediately saw Borgy Manotoc, Philippine Brand Ambassador for BenMore Scotch Whisky on the next table taking his dinner, hehehe baka late ka rin. Food were awesome, paella valenciana, fish filled and chicken adobo. for dissert, cassava cake, plus four season juice (kulay pink kasi).
Good timing, after we done eating our dinner the program were started. Product overview, company profile, product website, and of course, interview with Borgy Manotoc.
Finally the drinking marathon started. (joke) Each tables got 3 to 4 bottles of BenMore Scotch Whisky, iced tea, cola and soda water on the side. But I preferred to drink the whisky on rocks. “Scotch on the Rock” because “ang tunay na lalaki walang chaser kapag umiinom ng alak”. Wow! suwabe sa bibig, BenMore Scotch Whisky alcohol content was strong (that’s my point of view) 700ml/ bottle with 40% vol. of alcohol content, but the whisky not lining on my esophagus. Astig ito, kasi sa lakas kong uminom ng alak, 3 shoots palang ako medyo hilo na ako.
BTW, BENMORE Scotch Whisky is very affordable at suggested retail price (SRP) of only P330.00 to P385.00 per 700ml bottle, depending where you are in the country.
