"Scotch: the History, the Taste and the Mystique"
Whisky Archive and The Distilled Man present "Scotch: the History, the Taste and the Mystique." Appropriate for Scotch novices or aficionados, the educational tasting will provide answers to these and many more questions:
Why is Scotch whisky made only in Scotland?
Why does Scotch whisky taste smoky?
Why are single malts more expensive?
Why do single malts differ in taste?
Where is the "Whisky Trail"?
Is older whisky always better?
Does water really intensify the whisky flavor?
How long can single malts be stored?
Why do single malts vary in color?
What does "cask-strength" mean?
This intensive 2-hour workshop will be led by Mark Stewart Cassidy, a Scotch specialist. For over 10 years participants have learned from Mark to fully enjoy and appreciate the most complex and culturally entwined spirit of them all.
