Bourbon Sensory Analysis II • Dec 26 Bourbon U


Want something fun to do the day after Christmas? We have one more Bourbon U @thekentuckycastle December 26th! ??Still trying to figure out a present for someone? Buy a ticket for a friend or family member! (We won't tell who gave you the idea. ??) A quality Bourbon can contain over 200 flavors divided into five primary categories: • Grains • Tree (wood and nut) • Sweet • Spice • Botanical (primarily fruit and floral) Like fine wine, it takes palate education and practice to learn to detect the subtle and nuanced aromas and flavors of a complex Bourbon. We’ll explore advanced Bourbon sensory analysis through varying levels of blind tasting, . The Kentucky Castle's Bourbon-Steward-In-Residence (& Bourbon industry insider) Tim Knittel will guide you through: • Aroma, mouthfeel, front palate, mid-palate and finish • Aromatic “taste” and taste bud vs olfactory sensation • Orthonasal vs retronasal breathing and the post-swallowing volatile congeners release • Use of aromatic aids in Bourbon flavor identification • Resetting (baselining) sensory perception • Fault identification in Bourbon First, you’ll develop your aroma (palate) memory through nosing selected extracts and isolates. Then, you’ll use those aromas to blind-identify 5 Bourbons using professional tasting notes and place them in their correct categories: wheated Bourbon, traditional/low rye Bourbon, American rye whiskey, fruit-floral forward Bourbon and finished Bourbon. ??The bourbon pour list for this class is a secret! ?? This class is the twelfth in our year-long “Bourbon University” with a new theme offered each month. $35 per person, class includes guided bourbon flight and light food. Dinner reservations at Castle Farm Restaurant available for after the class.
