Event Details

A Tasting Tour of the 6 Whisky Regions of Scotland

Scotch glasses lined up for Scotch tasting

Scotch whisky is a mysterious and elusive spirit. If you've always been interested in Scotch but didn't know where to start, this is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge.

Mark Stewart Cassidy, Scotch Specialist at The Whisky Shop in San Francisco and Scotch Whisky Events, will guide the group in a tasting of six single malt Scotch whiskies.

This 2-hr course introduces you to six distilleries, one from each of the tasting regions in Scotland, and answers these questions and more about single malt Scotch whisky:

  • Why do single malts differ in taste and color?
  • Why does some Scotch whisky taste smoky?
  • Is older, more expensive whisky better?
  • What is “peat”?
  • Is it “ok” to put ice in my whisky?
  • Where is the “Whisky Trail”?
  • Why does water intensify the whisky flavor?
  • How long can single malts be stored?
  • What does "cask-strength" mean?
