Reviews

  • Whisky oasis in the middle of Soho

    Great afternoon. Good variety of whisky and James was knowledgeable and informative. Felt very relaxed at the end!

    Whiskey tasting in Soho!

    Very informative, made very welcome and of course, very enjoyable.

  • Perfect to learn about and enjoy great whiskeys!

    Knowledgable and very friendly host.

    Nice birthday celebration, my man was happy

    It was a nice place, ambience, whisky and a fab host.

  • 30th birthday present

    I booked this introductory tasting for my girlfriend as we were celebrating her 30th birthday. A special mention to Jack who was our guide, he was very knowledgeable but left us time and space to form our own - sometimes accurate, sometimes not! - opinions on the four whiskys, before giving us just the right amount of information. It was fun trying to notice flavours and guess distilleries, my girlfriend has some background knowledge and I somehow put my finger on some tasting notes. The venue is lovely, tucked away above the bustle of Soho, and it was nice to have some members filtering in and out as we drank. Everything still had a nice intimacy to it, so I'd recommend an early afternoon weekend slot if booking for a special occasion. We left an hour and a half later, our mental and physical faculties slightly impaired, but feeling very happy!

    Great!

    Very informative and knowledgable! Really enjoyable evening.

  • Recommended

    We had the whisky tasting and had the best time! Will definetly be back again.

    Great experience! Great whisky and knowledgeable host

    Our host was excellent, really knew his stuff and went out of his way to tailor the tasting to our preferences. He made us feel welcome and we learned a lot from it. It was a fantastic experience, thank you!

  • A wonderful discovery !

    My son and I recently attended the Soho Whisky Club as a joint birthday present from our family. It was a TRULY fantastic and most enjoyable experience. The host at the club really knows his subject and made the visit educational, interesting and highly entertaining. The venue is a real "Aladdin's Cave" of Whisky and I'm sure each bottle has it's own story to be told. We shall be back to listen to more of these tales and to sample yet more wee drams !

    Great experience

    Great venue and knowledgeable, friendly host. Great experience.

  • Great way to spend a couple of hours!

    James was great, very welcoming and knowledgable. I would highly recommend the experience.

    Best experience so far!!!

    What a great experience delivered in a friendly,informative and fun way. James was very knowledgeable about every aspect to do with whiskey. My brother and I thoroughly enjoyed the tasting and listening to James and his stories about his experiences within the whiskey trade. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn a lot more about whiskey and it's origins.

  • Cheers!

    It was a great evening, huge fun and educational. It was better than I anticipated. We were well looked after and it all seemed very bespoke.

    Good fun & good value

    Very informative tasting good fun had by all good value!

  • (Just about) walking in a whisky wonderland

    Great location, friendly and very knowledgable guide, and fantastic whiskies

    A great experience

    The host was very knowledgable and made the whole experience very enjoyable.

  • Expert-led tasting

    The bar tender/ coach really knew his Whiskeys.

    Informative and highly entertaining tasting session

    Excellent experience! George, our host, was hilarious, knowledgeable and great company. Very informative and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can highly recommend.

  • Amazing!

    The host was brilliant. Extremely knowledgeable. Great experience. Massive selection of whiskeys and cigars.

    Fantastic experience

    I want to thank the chap who spent time going over the whiskeys, and for making us feel so welcome. He was extremely knowledgeable and we both had a wonderful time.

    I also wish to thank truly experiences for such a smooth and well executed service, and for providing such a winner of an experience.

    I have recommended this to 3 friends already!

  • Lovely birthday gift!

    The experience was absolutely lovely! I booked it as a present for my boyfriend as it was his birthday. He is only recently getting into whisky and I thought this was a great way for him to find out more. The gentleman that hosted the tasting, George, was brilliant. He was friendly and clearly knew his stuff. We weren't made to feel rushed and he welcomed questions. The whole process, including booking the experience, was so smooth and easy. Thank you for a wonderful time!

    Wonderful Whiskey!!

    Amazing experience! Enjoyed every minute and our 'guide' Jack was incredible! Very knowledgeable, friendly and really made the day.

  • Great experience - loved it

    What a great experience .. George really knew his stuff and was clearly passionate - recommended this event to people we met the following day at a wine tasting - they'll be booking !

    A tasty experience

    An enjoyable and educational experience

  • Great night out, outstanding whiskeys.

    I arranged this whiskey session as a fun night out for my father, my brother-in-law and I, and I'm glad to say it was a great choice. The venue was a calm, sophisticated venue hidden away in the heart of Soho, (one that I had surprisingly not known about until now), the host was a lively and knowledgable connoisseur who presented each round of drams with interesting insights into its origins, and as for the whiskey itself (5 rounds in total), excellent stuff. I am no whiskey expert but every drop was delicious, from the creamy Lowland's single malts to the smokey, peaty numbers to finish. In the end we had to buy a couple of bottles!

    Nice way to spend an afternoon

    Very nice low key event. Lots of useful & interesting information available as we tasted.

  • Great experience!

    Staff were really friendly and helpful. Great experience!

    Excellent tasting - highly recommended

    Couldn't have been any better. Great value for money. The host was so knowledgeable and not just text book, from his own experiences, could have sat talking to him for hours. We were the only two on the tasting, great setting and wasn't rushed, got told about each whiskey and we tried extra (at additional costs). But for what we paid the shots we received were very generous. Was so much better than expected, what a great find! Would recommend this place and host (George) to anyone!

  • highly recommended whisky tasting

    It was a great place to visit and the manager George who gave the tasting was extremely knowledgeable fielding all my brothers questions! Great whisky, great location highly recommended

    well worth a visit

    Experienced and knowledgable host. In a lovely non-pretentious setting where Whiskey is at the heart of everything

  • Great fun whisky tasting

    Good venue. Our host, James was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience very enjoyable.

    Well worth an evening out!

    The gentleman was knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant. The whiskey tasted great as well!

  • Very satisfying experience

    Good whisky and good/ knowledgeable insight for Seamus.

    A great night even for a whisky novice

    The soho whisky club was a lovely venue and the barman that did our whisky tasting was very knowledgeable and friendly and didn't make us feel inferior for not knowing lots about whisky. We also had fun trying to smoke our cigar outside in the nice outdoor area. A great Christmas present for my mum.

  • Whisky tasting experience.

    We were lucky to have a very detailed and enthusiastic explanation from George about the making of whiskies and tasting a variety. Next time I'll have a whisky I will give it more thought....

    Really helpful staff who made it a great experience!

    Even better than I thought it would be. The staff at the Whisky Club were so helpful and made it a really personal experience. Would definitely recommend!

  • Great whisky, cool location - not great atmosphere

    Good - though the place was slightly quiet and we couldn't go outside

    Excellent

    Was a very fun evening and truly staff were very helpful in organizing our night.

  • A bit of fun for whisky lovers!

    This was an all round pleasant experience and an enjoyable way to pass away an hour and a half or so tasting whisky and improving our knowledge of what is a complex subject.

    Lovely Father's Day Gift Experience

    A very enjoyable hour. Very personal attention from our knowledgeable host , and 4 delicious whiskies. A lovely Father's Day experience with my son.
