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 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!
