Magic happens. Especially when all the right elements converge for a very special evening. They did just that for Privy's recent Whisky Dinner, a blissful combination of cuisine, company, and exquisite sips of liquid gold. An exclusive Privy event, the evening earned stellar marks by every measure.

You'd expect nothing less when eighteen elegant guests are invited to feast on a sumptuous June dinner of ten haute cuisine courses prepared by accomplished Chef Erik Sun. Highlight each course with a perfectly paired sip of whisky and you have the quintessential, 'must-do' soirée.

Gracious guests gathered at the fabulous Georgian-style estate of Anna Fang and Michael Yang in Beverly Hills, immediately diving into conversation and catching up on everyone's status. In the background, Chef Erik prepared the first plates, while Glenmorangie West Coast Brand Ambassador Jon Trainer poured glasses of specially selected Scotch whiskies. Why Glenmorangie? Jon knew all the answers and filled Privy guests in with meticulously detailed discussions to educate, inspire, and engage.

Glenmorangie, pronounced "glen-MORR-?n-jee" Trainer advised, and its Sixteen Men of Tain have been producing award-winning single malt whiskies on the Morangie farm since 1843. Employing Scotland's tallest stills, along with white oak barrels hewn from its own forests, Glenmorangie's single malt whiskies have won more 'Gold Best in Class' distinctions in the past five years than any other distillery's efforts at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. Both Privy and Glenmorangie have raised the bar in their respective spheres, as has Chef Erik, effectively establishing a triumvirate of unquestionable status on this most memorable evening.

The elegant fare began with a sweet, succulent kumamoto oyster, poached in its own rich liquor, enhancing the sea's infusion of salt. Paired with Glenmorangie Original 10 Year Old Scotch Whisky, with a citrus and floral nose, vanilla and flowering fruit washing the palate, and a whispering finish of orange and peach, the pair proved simply divine.

Course two delivered fried brioche with creamy, Italian burrata and truffled honey, topped with a black truffle crown. Served with Glenmorangie Lasanta 12 Year Old Whisky, the pair worked beautifully together, highlighting Lasanta's boldly spiced nose of toffee pudding, dates, cinnamon, and clove. Lasanta's excellent flavors and aromas are produced through ten years spent in American casks once filled with high quality bourbon, followed by two additional years in Spanish casks that aged Oloroso and PX Sherry.

The live diver scallop in a superb scallop stock, delivered a third course appropriately matched with the sweet/dry balance of Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky. Aged in French barrique casks from Sauterne, the aromas of citrus and sultanas, followed by a palate of warm spice and honeycomb, finished with lingering lemon zest, spice, and vanilla, delivered a truly refined pair.
