The Library is pleased to announce the next installment of our Scholar’s Flight Night, featuring very rare whiskies that have been aged for 20+ years from around the world. Each spirit has been carefully selected by MWL Spirit Curator and Education Manager, Brett Adams, who will share a brief history of each distillery and why these whiskies are so unique. 


Here’s a blurb from Adams on the event: “This event grants a once in a lifetime opportunity to truly experience and understand these irreplaceable whiskies. While we are providing an evening with some of the oldest and rarest spirits in our collection, we are also aiming to provide context for what makes each one so exceptional. Guests will get to experience the way similar whiskies can change when given extended stays in oak, and how various styles of whiskey each have a unique response to long maturation. It will be a fun night for those who are curious about what makes rare and old whiskey so special. Just like the whiskies themselves, this is the sort of event that we can’t replicate very often, and we’re really excited about being able to offer this experience.” 


In line with our theme, MWL Executive Chef Robert Kelley, has designed a playful five course tasting menu comparing ‘young’ versus ‘old’ techniques, such as dry aging versus fresh cuts.


Seating will be communal, as this will be an intimate gathering in the Library’s tasting room.


We hope to see you there!
