What actually happens when we taste, how the palate, olfactory and brain work together? Ian Wisniewski, the whisky expert, will tell you all about it and give you tips on tasting techniques and writing tasting notes.
On the evening we will be tasting 6 malts (two unpeated, two lightly peated, two heavily peated) and learn more about Ian's latest book on the market, the Whisky Dictionary.
The Whisky Dictionary (Octopus Publishing) looks at whiskies around the world, including Scotland, Ireland, Japan, USA, Australia, Europe and Scandinavia, covering history, production and ageing, whisky culture, tasting and serving whisky, choice of glassware, whisky cocktails, collecting whisky and whisky accessories.
The Whisky Dictionary An A–Z of whisky, from history & heritage to distilling & drinking by Ian Wisniewski, is published by Mitchell Beazley £15 www.octopusbooks.co.uk
