The Whisky Palette

With such a huge array of flavours to be discovered in whisky we have designed this 5 dram tasting to showcase this diversity, and how like the colours on an artists palette these flavours combine to create masterpieces on your own palate. Let us take you through the light and delicate, through sweetly floral and on to rich and spicy realms before taking a detour to oily maritime and finally landing in the dark side of peat smoke. Ideal for those wanting a grand tour of whisky flavour.

What is Flavour?

Duration 1 - 1.5 hours

Something we take for granted yet is fundamental to our daily lives. Flavour is a fascinating sensation that is far more complex than we would initially believe. Experience how our elaborate brains interpret the world around us to create flavour and how the mind can be tricked and manipulated to perceive things in unexpected ways. By developing an in-depth understanding of the tasting process you will broaden your flavour horizons and learn new ways to enjoy a dram or two.
