Mic Check in the Morning: Whiskey and Blues
Fury Rondy and Iditarod aren’t the only events scheduled this weekend. Whiskey and Blues take over the Dena’ina Center Saturday, March 7. Blues musician Marquise Knox will perform while a whiskey connoisseur shares his knowledge of single-malt whiskeys during the nosing and tasting presentation.
“Normally you get a nosing glass, like a little tulip, [and] nose it,” said Andy Holmes, a whiskey connoisseur of more than 30 years. “Keeping the correlation between your nose and pallet, take a little sip — feel that going around the mouth and afterwards, just three drops of water, [to] open up all those flavors. Gorgeous sensation in your mouth.”
Holmes will present six whiskeys while attendees can enjoy the music of Marquise Knox. Knox performed a preview of his show for a Mic Check in the Morning.
