 Auchentoshan American Oak Lowlands, Scotland
Wee $ 4 Regular $12
Single Malt
One of three distilleries in what was a booming Scotch producing region that still produces whiskey. Triple distilled. CASKS: Ex bourbon casks lightly toasted. PROFILE: Spring, hay, citrus, bright wood, toasted coconut, slightest hint of pear. For the lightness it has a surprising velvety texture in the front. A hint of vanilla. Finish is more of same wood with a touch of cinnamon bark. Medium finish. WATER: brings out more of citrus notes and a sharpness of Oak while creating more cereal malts.
SUGGESTED PAIRING: Scottish Salmon Salad (be sure to utilize that grilled lemon.)

Tea Menu

Our history begins with Tea. Some of you have been following us through the decades. Some of you question if we will continue to sell our aromatic blends as we develop Neville’s long-held dream and vision. (Neville Gardner is the Owner, Proprietor of McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar and of Donegal Square.) Equally, there are those of you that know us only for your source of malt-based beverages (beer and whiskey) and ask us “why the tea?”

So…come sit with your favorite cuppa (pats chair)…and I will share with you the intent behind the tea.  Browse our full tea menu

Coffee Menu

Our tea is not the only hot beverage we take great care and pride when offering you the flavorful best. For generations, we have chosen for you one of the freshest means of brewing coffee, the French coffee press. In the last two years, we have added a coffee bean grinder to grind it fresh every morning. That first sip of coffee…ahhh.  Browse our full Coffee Menu, delish!

 

Pet-Friendly Dinner Plates

At McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub we pride ourselves with being the most “pet-friendly” business in the Lehigh Valley. Pets may dine outside on our Patty-O or to go! We offer our four-legged best friends a special treat — their own menu. This menu features white rice mixed with carrots (because they are good for the eyes) and topped with your choice of grilled chicken or ground beef. Man’s (or Woman’s) best friend is treated like a King or Queen. (Please note that due to health code restrictions, only certified service dogs may enter the restaurant).
