Elixir California Whiskey Week is a precursor to Whiskyfest San Francisco on November 2nd. Check it out here.

WHEN: Thursday, November 1st, 8pm-10pm (Come to the bar early, have a beer and relax until we start. Don's team will be pouring tastes and talking to the crowd.)

Overview

This session will be an exciting discussion about the Canadian Whisky Flavour Wheel©. What are the flavours found in Canadian Whisky? We'll cover the importance of grain, fermentation, distillation and maturation, and the processes we have in place to isolate and measure these components. A tasting of some rare Canadian Whiskies will illustrate how the Canadian Whisky Flavour Wheel© can be used as a new way to profile whiskies.

To get an idea of where this is going, try reading Dave Broom's article.
