Master blenders, all!

Chivas master blender Colin Scott at the ‘Masterpiece with the Master Blender’ at the Taj

Chivas Regal, the world’s first luxury whisky, played host to the city’s discerning elite with Colin Scott’s ‘Masterpiece with the Master Blender’ event at the Chambers terrace of the Taj Mahal Palace.
It turned out to be an informative and intoxicating experience as master blender Colin Scott guided the guests through the art of blending. Guests had a chance to create their very own blend with little bottles of Speyside, Highland, Lowland, Islay and Grain in front of them. Varied tasting notes raced through the mind as each guest singled out the aromas that captivated their senses and then created their very own Chivas blend. Yes, everyone was a master blender that night.
After that it was time for a sit-down dinner amidst a splendid setting. Starting with Chantenay Carrot And Orange Cigar, Spiced Coconut Paper, Kaffir Lime Air and moving on to Smoked Salmon Mousseline, Ikura Chevre Fig, Coffee Soil, Red Velvet Crisp; Chilean Seabass, Butter Poached Lobster Ravioli, Laksa Drizzle; Confit Duck Breast, Battalion Couscous, Pan Extract. And desserts: Raw Almond, Flourless Chocolate Cake; Bitter Chocolate and Chivas Cremeaux; Almond Crumble, Fresh Berries.
Whew!
