In this episode we get our feet wet in Vancouver by mixing up a couple of delicious whisky cocktails with Whisky Wisemen’s co-founder Nick Harborne.

Who are the Whisky Wisemen?

Whisky Wisemen is a nonprofit that hosts cocktail parties to raise money for charity. The Wisemen are now branching out into other forms of charity events like golf tournaments, whisky festivals, TV shows, and tastings.

We mixed it up with Nick to create some cocktails

Nick and the Nimble team left the ‘candy’ store with bottles of Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban and Lagavulin 8 year. Next we named our first drink, made with the Glenmorangie, the Quinta-sensual. The Quinta Ruban boasts a velvety, chocolatey, smooth flavor profile and texture.

The Quinta-sensual Recipe:

50ml Quinta Ruban

20ml Nutty Solera Medium Sherry

0.25oz Shrub and Co. Wildflower and Honey Syrup

3 dashes Mister Bitters Honeyed Apricot and Smoked Hickory Bitters

Stir in ice and strain neat into a chilled Whisky Wisemen tumbler. Garnish with two Maraschino cherries.


Finally, we mixed a cocktail starring the Lagavulin 8 year. We named this cocktail…

The Camp Vickie: Recipe

3oz Lagavulin 8 year

Dash of runny honey

1 Tbs BBQ Sauce

Dash of Sriracha

Use a Nimble Smoking Puck to smoke the tumbler. Rim the glass with lemon juice and mashed Miss Vickie’s BBQ smoked potato chips.

Then mix, strain, and serve on the rocks.

Cheers, Whisky Wiseman Nick. Until next time
