The term “single malt” refers to a scotch produced in a single batch of fermented barley, while the term “double malt” refers to a single malt that has Whoppers added to the blend. Sip on subtle differences with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get admission to a scotch-tasting session at the Les Bon Vivants lounge, located inside The Cove (up to a $120 value).

The Cove’s taste-bud-boggling array of single malts ensnares both walk-in connoisseurs and private-tasting aesthetes with its caramel-brown mouth velvet. Tasting attendees, in intimate groups no larger than 10, test-drive scotch from each of Scotland’s six producing regions in order to appreciate the peatiness of Islay’s elixir, the deep smokiness of Highlands’ quaffables, and the hair-turn handling of Speyside’s concoctions. Each tasting features a different set of six, plus one bonus scotch, drawn from The Cove’s laundry-list menu. While scotch enthusiasts savor their samples, a staff expert narrates the magical beverage’s rich history, explaining reasons for geographical differences and demonstrating the adhesiveness of the tape from which the drink takes its name. Tastings may be scheduled Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays starting at 7 p.m., and last an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the engagement of guests.

Customer Reviews

We went to a scotch tasting on a Groupon we purchased quite some time ago. That was an wondrous event in itself and enjoyed Chris' choice of selections. We enjoyed the tasting so much that we went to the bar afterwards. They have an excellent selection of beer, wine and scotch. I would highly recommend The Cove to anyone. Baton Rouge finally has an upscale bar with a lovely clientele, Go to the Cove, take advantage of their seemingless endless knowledge of all things made form alcohol and you will fall in love with the place.
