Raglan Road Irish Pub Celebrates World Whiskey Day May 12th – 15th, 2021 (Photos)

Hi everyone!

We were invited to Raglan Road Irish Pub at Disney Springs yesterday for a World Whiskey Day event. Raglan Road is celebrating this week from May 12th – 15th, 2021 with a special offer, four whiskeys from around the world for $25.00 (from Ireland, Japan, the United States and Scotland). We sampled the whiskeys along with whiskey-based dishes, some that may soon end up on the menu.

Raglan Road not only offers a terrific food menu, but there are a variety of specialty beers and cocktails. Our menu highlighted “specialty libations” including a Blood Orange Bourbon and the Dublin Donkey with small batch Irish Whiskey.

The World Whiskey Day Flight for $25.00 includes four special whiskeys from around the world. These four whiskeys are only here this week but Raglan Road has other whiskeys year-round.

Here is a look at the special $25.00 whiskey flight for World Whiskey Day, which includes Powers Johns Lane Release 12 year, WhistlePig 10 year, Mars Shinshu Iwai Tradition from Japan and Laphroaig Select Single Malt. The whiskeys are very unique, including one that had a very strong, smoky flavor.

The Blood Orange Bourbon features Bulleit Bourbon, Nolet’s Gin and San Pellegrino Blood Orange. It is a very nice cocktail and has been on the menu for years. Raglan Road also offers Guinness Irish Stout and other imports, domestic and their own Raglan Road Signature Brews (including Raglan Road Irish Stout).

Jeff was here for the full event and I arrived at the end. He tried everything on the event menu, including the Whiskey BBQ Glazed Chicken Lollipops. This starter is already on the main menu and the dish includes roasted corn & bacon crumble with a corn puree. It is a unique take on chicken and he enjoyed this quite a lot.

The Whiskey Glazed Pork Cheek, like almost everything else on yesterday’s event menu is not on the restaurant menu (yet). It included a smoked potato terrine. Jeff enjoyed the combination of the pork cheek with the potato terrine.

The Dublin Donkey drink was very popular with everyone yesterday, it is created with Teeling’s small batch Irish Whiskey, ginger beer, fresh lemon sour and candied ginger and lime. I took a sip and the ginger was especially prominent.

Jeff’s favorite food item from yesterday was the Whiskey Cured Smoked Salmon. It came with lemon & herb crushed potatoes, pea texture & horseradish with crispy skin. Jeff is used to smoked salmon in cold form but not in a hot dish. He liked the peas and the crispy skin with it.

The Whiskey Braised Beef Cheek included triple duck fat chips, whiskey & vinegar salt, mushroom ketchup and crispy onions.

For dessert, there were two items brought out. The first is not currently on the menu but I hope it will be soon. The Apple Baked Dumplings with whiskey butterscotch Jameson sauce and ice cream is delicious. Honestly, it is impossible to top very longtime favorite Ger’s Bread & Butter Pudding for dessert at Raglan Road…while this doesn’t, it’s a good alternative.

The Whiskey Chocolate Caramel Brownie was a whiskey twist to a similar item on the regular menu. Desserts at Raglan Road never disappoint and the caramel and brownie went well together.

We were in a room off to the side of the main area, one that I’ve dined in so many times since Raglan Road first opened. It can be easy to forget there is entertainment on the main stage, which happens every evening and also in the afternoons on Saturday and Sunday. The entertainment schedule for the main stage and the patio stage can be found here.

Here are a few photos from yesterday.

The World Whiskey Day event ends on May 15th, but Raglan Road offers fantastic food, drink and entertainment all year round – plus occasional events.
