Virtual Bourbon Tasting Class with Tracy Waldron

  • Tracy Waldron, CSW, SWS, DipWSET - Owner - VA Wine & Spirits Academy

In this session, we will explore the production techniques,from raw materials to finishing, that create and amplify aromas and flavors inBourbon whiskey. During a tutored tasting of four classic Bourbon profiles,you'll learn how to assess and describe these spirits through the techniques ofsensory analysis. This in-depth foundational knowledge will allow you toidentify styles that you prefer, provide a reference point for understandingboth classic and modern styles, and enable you to have more in-depthconversations with others about the essential elements in each whiskey.

If you are joining usTracy suggests you have on hand for sampling purposes the following spirits:

Maker's Mark

Woodford Reserve

Larceny Small Batch

Knob Creek 9 Year

These are available in VA ABC stores in 50mL "nip"sample size bottles. And widely available in other states. They will illustrate well the points Tracywill be making during the class.
