PREMIUM Whisky Tasting (SOUTHAMPTON)
In our everlasting mission to educate and expand our palates, we at the Hampshire Wine School host PREMIUM TASTINGS. This Whisky Tasting is such an event. Our knowledgeable and friendly Spirits Specialist, Kevin White, focuses on providing the juicy details you really want to know:
- What difference does the barrel make to the final taste?
- How does a bourbon barrel differ from a sauternes cask?
- Is it worth paying extra for a 14 year old whisky in preference to a 10 year old?
These are some of the excellent questions that have been asked at our regular whisky tastings. The answers can be found during this brilliant tasting opportunity. Kevin, our resident Whisky Geek will guide you through the different impact of barrel sizes and woods, aging, blending, and malting. Together, you will explore how all these factors impact on the resulting flavour and, most importantly, discover for yourself which flavours you prefer.
This is very much a practical tasting. Kevin believes strongly in gaining knowledge through experience. So you will taste 2 Speyside and 2 Highland whiskies, all aged in different barrels and over different periods of time. You will also taste 1 rare Islay whisky and 1 Japanese whisky designed to make the malt drinking experience extra special.
A very special evening and a great present idea for the Whisky connoisseur.
"We just wanted to write and say what a fantastic night we had last night at Whisky Tasting it was great fun gained plenty of knowledge and very well presented. Would recommend your tasting classes to all we know. Hopefully will book another with you soon. Many thanks for a great night." (Paul Couch and Steve Patrick)
