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 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!

NEW CLASS! What’s Wood Got To Do With It

 

The wood Barrel used to age whisky in contributes 60% to 70% of the flavor of the whisky. The selection of the type of Barrel used to age or finish a whisky is one of the most vital elements in whisky production. Raj will lead you through a comparative tasting of 3 pairs of whiskies to explore and examine the effect of the barrel.
