Personal Whiskey Profile
One of the many great things about whiskey: there’s always something more to learn and always something else to taste.
Expand your Whiskey knowledge and palates with a Whiskey Profile experience. Blind taste 8 whiskies and food pairings to enhance your taste buds.
- What flavors would you find in a fragrant whiskey?
- Where do your personal tastes truly lie?
- Why does a peaty whiskey taste smokey?
Receive your own Tasting Guide and Journal to write down your observations not only at time of the profile, but yours to keep as you continue your Whiskey Journey.
But…what are whiskey flavors, exactly?
The whiskies were carefully selected to represent 8 distinct flavors. Coastal, Winey, Fruity, Floral to name but a few. As we unfold the flavors of the Whiskey, you will find how each flavor is significant to you and then learn which distillery created it and which particular bottle it is.
