Hacking Grain! - Jim Manley
Ever wondered what the difference is between “whisky” and “whiskey?” Or what makes bourbon different than Scotch? Or why does this whisky give me a hangover and that one doesn’t? This talk is a whirlwind tour of what whisky is, the science and art of how it is made, and how whiskies differ. We will also cover organoleptic analysis techniques that will allow you to break a whisky down and uncover the complexities of the aroma and flavor profiles. By the end of the session you’ll be equipped to confidently answer the “What would you like to drink?” question at that important client dinner or meeting with the boss with an answer other than “Red Bull® and vodka.”
