David Perkins (High West): "Whiskey: A Scientific Art"
High West introduces us to what whiskey is and what it can be. Learn the scientific foundation which is responsible for a great whiskey. Explore the differences between light and straight whiskies and the importance of choosing a distillation style which complements the grains, yeast and fermentation. Finally, understand how blending can give you flavor profiles which aren't possible in single batches. Best of all, taste examples of what this ultimately means in the finished products.
