SWC Tasting #51: Why Bourbon Tastes Like Bourbon

Whiskey Flavor Series #1:  Why Bourbon Tastes Like Bourbon

Jason Parker (Copperworks Distillery) and Christopher Gronbeck (The Barrel Thief) present an occasional series of educational & experiential workshops on flavors in whiskey...their sources, development, management, and experience.


The first workshop in this series explores the primary flavors in Bourbon:  what you typically smell and taste when you drink Bourbon, the chemistry underlying the predominant flavors, where and when the flavors develop in the process, and how the distiller manages the process to influence the final product and experience.

We'll be tasting Bourbons during the workshop, and will be leaving plenty of time for questions and contributions by members.

Stay tuned for future installments in the series!
