ANDRE’S AT MONTE CARLO RESORT’S POPULAR WHISK(E)Y WEDNESDAY
TO CELEBRATE AMERICA FOR JULY 9 EVENT
On Wednesday, July 9, Whisk(e)y Wednesday returns to its American roots, celebrating domestic whiskies. Whisk(e)y Wednesdays is the series featuring unlimited whiskey tastings. The event takes place on the second floor of Andre’s Restaurant & Lounge at Monte Carlo Resort Hotel and Casino, inside their signature Cigar Lounge.
For July, the flight will feature American whiskies from George Dickel and Bulleit, as well as a special 20 year old release from Barterhouse. The special guest speaker will be Dr. Tom Turner, master of whiskey, Diageo. He will explore the history of the whiskeys, their production and offer tips and techniques for maximizing the enjoyment of the spirits.
Whisk(e)y Wednesday’s “grand tasting” takes place over two sessions: the first taking place from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. and the second tasting from 10 p.m. to midnight.
After the debut of this new flight of American whiskies, the flight will remain on Andre’s menu until the next tasting in September.
As for the location itself – considered one of Las Vegas’ best kept secrets, Andre’s Cigar Lounge is the only one of its kind to be connected to a Strip resort. With a collection of more than 140 Cognacs, Armagnacs and Scotches, as well as premium cigar varieties, the collection is the largest of its kind in Las Vegas and is ranked third in North America based on its sheer size. Considered a “hidden gem” by those in the hospitality industry, the Cigar Lounge opened in 1996 along with the award-winning, AAA Four Diamond restaurant. The exclusive destination was created to serve as a respite for cigar aficionados who longed to have a place on the Las Vegas Strip where they could enjoy their smoke and soak in the ambience of an incredible atmosphere. Among the cigars – the Lounge’s most popular seller is the Montecristo No. 2. Another popular cigar is the Padron 80th anniversary 1926 Perfecto. Hand-rolled treasures also include Fuente OpusX and Ashton VSG. As with Whisk(e)y Wednesdays, all spirits can be paired with cigars.
The price is $35 per person. Limited seatings are available for each session. Reservations are recommended. For more information, please call (702) 798-7151.
