Join us for a tasting and discussion of whisk(e)ys from all over the world.  We will taste hrough eight different types of whisk(e)y and discuss the different nuances of each.  Through that lens we will also see how history has changed whisk(e)y and vice versa.
We aim to improve your understanding of the category by answering certain questions like:

What defines Irish vs Scotch vs Japanese vs American and the larger spectrum of Whisk(e)y. 
Who makes it and where? 
What is the mashbill, and how does it effect the final product? 
How do I read a whiskey bottle?

Throughout the class we will be sipping through a flight of whisky intended to expand your palate.
