A Tasting Tour of the 6 Whisky Regions of Scotland at The Whisky Shop

Today, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM


Scotch whisky is a mysterious and elusive spirit. If you've always been interested in Scotch but didn't know where to start, this is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge.

Mark Stewart Cassidy, Scotch Specialist at The Whisky Shop in San Francisco and Scotch Whisky Events, will guide the group in a tasting of six single malt Scotch whiskies.

This 2-hr course introduces you to six distilleries, one from each of the tasting regions in Scotland, and answers these questions and more about single malt Scotch whisky:

Why do single malts differ in taste and color?

Why does some Scotch whisky taste smoky?

Is older, more expensive whisky better?

What is “peat”?

Is it “ok” to put ice in my whisky?

Where is the “Whisky Trail”?

Why does water intensify the whisky flavor?

How long can single malts be stored?

What does "cask-strength" mean?
