Event Details

Bourbon Whiskey

Scotch Whisky

What's the difference?


Whiskey or whisky? What's the difference? Bourbon and Scotch whiskies are 2 general styles of whisk(e)y from two very different lands, but both are delicious and culturally significant to both the people of those regions, and....well...everyone else, too. 


Join the Boothby Center in kicking off the first of an ongoing series we're calling WHISK(E)Y CONVERSATIONS. We'll talk, sip, talk, look at some pictures, sip and talk some more as we bring in some of the best whisky minds in the world to sit down with us for an evening. And then we'll get together soon and do it again. So many whiskies...so much to talk about...

Whisk(e)y Conversations:

Robin Robinson

Robin Robinson


Are you getting washed over by the surging brown spirits wave?  Find yourself in a liquor store with that “deer in the headlights” look on your face while standing in front of the Scotch whisky shelves?  Not sure of the difference between “single barrel” and “single malt”?  Are you ready to turn “in vino veritas” (in wine there is truth) into a love for “uisge beathe” (the water of life)?

Renown whisky educator and Compass Box Whisky Brand Ambassador Robin Robinson will guide you to a soft landing from the column stills of Kentucky to the pot stills of Scotland with this introductory class on the history of, nosing of, sipping of and enjoyment of whisk(e)y.  In this 2 hour class, we’ll taste and compare American bourbons to Scotch whiskies, break down the components of each and understand what brings us the flavor, aroma and transcendent-ness of well aged whiskies like no other spirit.

You'll get a welcome cocktail and a full tasting that demonstrates the various styles of these whiskies.
