I eagerly arrived in an Uber at about 1:30 for a 2:00pm tasting at what has quickly become my favorite Hollywood bar, nay favorite bar PERIOD, Lost Property located in Hollywood, on Hollywood and Vine, but unless you knew what you are looking for good luck finding it from the street! There is minimal signage and that helps to keep the lounge/speakeasy feel alive. I’ve been to several events at Lost Property and the team there is amazing. So let me just take this moment to give a shoutout to my friends Jeremy and Rhino who own Lost Property! You two are awesome, and thank you for running such a great and welcoming space.
It’s not every day that I get to taste a scotch that isn’t even on shelves in Southern California yet, but that’s exactly what happened when I went to this little “secret soiree”. I had been looking forward to this night with immense anticipation for several days; I mean the company I was to experience this tasting adventure with included members of some of LA’s prestigious whisk(e)y clubs along with several members of the spirits trade. The last time I attended anything as exclusively comparable was when I got to go to a private event hosted at the Blizzard Entertainment campus for the actors and their friends/family for StarCraft 2.
Traffic is a mean co-conspirator and being more of a pain than usual I was a bit nervous; that is until I realized it was due to the premiere of Kong: Skull Island happening just a few miles down the road. I excitedly walked into Lost Property, armed with my trusty “Log of Spirits”(which coincidentally enough, is a Glenfiddich vinyl notebook) plus my trusty pen and met the host for the evening’s festivities Brand Ambassador for Glenfiddich, West, Mrs. Jennifer Wren.
