Connoisseur Class: The Common Sense of Scents
Do you always believe what your sense of smell is telling you? Explore the role that your nose plays when drinking a great glass of whisky (or even… egads… a bad one). Who better than a professional whiskey taster, that guy from the iconic whisky nosing glass and the dude with the academy focused on aromas to open your eyes a bit to what your schnozzle is telling you. Gain a better appreciation of the aromas that whisky possesses and remember… always follow your nose!
It’s Flavor That Matters: Blind Tasting Without Bias – Samson & Surrey
So many things affect our choices when it comes to which whisk(e)y to enjoy – marketing, reviews, package style, word-of-mouth, etc. In the end, the true arbiter of that choice should be the flavor of the liquid in the bottle, and the effect it has on your individual palate. Tonight, we will strip away all the pretense and blind taste six different whiskies from around the world. At the end, we’ll reveal each liquid and its unique story to discover which was truly your favorite – sans preconception!
