“Whiskey” is a world unto its own. Many people think it refers to just one type of brown spirit, or that all brown spirits called “whiskey” fit neatly into a similar category and might be interchangeable.
Whiskey has many different categories and they carry many different and distinct flavors. Whiskey can refer to spirits made with any grain (corn, barley, rye, sorghum, quinoa, etc), aged or unaged, and made in any country. And each of these grains, countries, and aging processes has it’s own tradition that makes them what they are - and distinct from one another.
We’re going to taste through four different whiskeys, each showcasing once of these traditions and Will will be discussing how they all differ from one another.
This is a chance to take your first steps into whiskey.
