Masterclasses

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! Presented by Kyle McHugh, Director of Brand Advocacy – Samson & Surrey.
