The “Gentleman’s Scotch Dinner (with the Ladies)” held Wednesday evening at Kurrents restaurant in the Marriott was dedicated to pairing Scotch whisky, primarily single malts, with appropriate food items to create a gourmet dining experience and perhaps, in the long run, build awareness and sales for Chivas Bros. distilleries and their Glenlivet brands. But for many, even dedicated drinkers of the Highlands’ distilled essence, Scotch is typically downed before the meal, which is then accompanied by wine. That is, if further alcohol is desired, and to be fair and accurate, it generally is.
