Weekly Web Update: June 16, 2014
As we stay true to our goal of bringing you the most amazing customer service, it is our pleasure to start introducing you to our team. Wine is a large part of Ken&Norm’s portfolio and it gives us great pride to know our library consists of almost 1000 bottles from all over the globe. Jason Edwards is our wine guy, lets meet him:
How did you get started? I count myself lucky to have lived within the Niagara region of Southern Ontario Canada, renowned for its amazing wines. Through the Wine Council of Ontario, I earned a Certificate of Merit in their oenology courses and have made it a passion of mine to learn everything possible about what makes each wine from each part of the world special.
What’s your favorite? I love pretty much any style of wine; from the fruit-forward whites to the deepest tannic reds, to the most moussie champagnes. Rose wines have been given a bad rap of late and this summer’s list has been… very diverse… to say the least.
We’ve been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to get our hands on single-barrel bourbon-whiskies in the past, but none makes us more excited than this new release from Woodford Reserve. Because every batch is unique and each barrel imparts its own characteristics, a second oaking in a richly-toasted, lightly charred barrel makes for a much creamier texture. Sergey’s (pictured with barrel cap) impression is: “This is the creamiest, richest bourbon-whiskey I’ve ever tasted! Smooth caramel palate with finishes of apple and vanilla. Amazing!”
