If you’ve ever been to the Ranch, chances are you already know about our breathtaking atmosphere. There’s just something so timeless about the scenery out here. I’m a BC boy, born and raised. Moving to Alberta was a huge change, not just family wise, but environment wise as well. I still miss the mountains and the fresh fruit, but coming to the Ranch is like coming home. The trees, the views, the smells – all of it in some form or another reminds me of where I came from.

Whiskey Tasting at the Ranch – How it’s properly done

Whiskey Tasting at the Ranch 

Whiskey tasting at the RanchAt The West Lake Grill, we are no strangers to a great tasting Whiskey. After all what would a Ranch be without it? We pride ourselves in loving and understanding the smells & tastes of every flavour. The scent is the sensation and aromas that you pick up from the whisky before tasting it. Important characteristics can be found and should give an indication as to what the whisky will taste like. Swirl it around and allow oxygen to start the evaporation process. It’s important to savour it in your mouth to get the maximum flavour and benefit. Different parts of your tongue and mouth respond to different flavours, so pass the whisky over all areas of your mouth. Now that’s the taste of Whiskey on the Ranch!
