    Good intro into the history, classification and how-to of whiskey


    Instructor uses video and some supporting notes/graphics in each segment. He reviews the types of American whiskey, history of the spirit in the US, process of how it is made, and the do’s and don’ts of tasting. The course was really helpful to understand all the spirits that are called “whiskey” and why they are classified that way. Particularly learned lots about different grain bills and how that translates to different whiskey tastes. In the section on how to taste, there were helpful notes on what to consider when nosing and tasting, as well as how to pair foods with whiskey and bourbon. Now I feel much more educated to be able to choose new bourbons to try.

    Nice overall presentation. Some history and technical aspects are gone over to help the viewer begin to evaluate the process of the experiencing the beverage. Look forward to a course on clear spirits(vodka/tequila). Presenter is not stressing any one position, but offering the individual the opportunity to experience and develop an experience history.
