Savor a Whisky Experience at The Arthur J

Mar 22, 2017 09:04AM ● By Jeanne Fratello

If you're a whisky aficionado, The Arthur J has the perfect treat for you: a once-in-a-lifetime Japanese whisky tasting matched with a six-course dinner at the restaurant. 

The experience with Suntory Whisky will take place on Tuesday, March 28, beginning with a welcome reception at 6:45 p.m. Tickets to the event cost $650 per guest, which includes tax and gratuity.

Japanese whisky has been in the spotlight in recent years due to a renewed interest in and respect for the tradition and strong commitment to perfection. Guests are invited to "delve into the refined sensibility of the Japanese art of blending" as used by the masters of Suntory Whisky. 

The evening will begin with a traditionally prepared Japanese highball cocktail and welcome aperitifs followed by a six course component tasting dinner.  The first five courses will feature ultra rare barrel samples that highlight the ingredients of the award-winning Hibiki blend, culminating with Suntory's award winning Hibiki 17yr.  

The six-course menu was specially designed for the occasion by Chef David LeFevre, Chef de Cuisine Daniel Waked, and Executive Pastry Chef Uyen Kirshenbaum.
