This virtual tasting features two examples of bottled in bond whiskey—that is, American whiskey from one distillation season and one distillery, aged in a federally bonded warehouse for at least four years, then bottled at exactly 100 proof.
This sommelier-led virtual tasting features two innovative American whiskies from Blackened that showcase how this brand uniquely utilizes black brandy finishing and Metallica-fueled sonic enhancement to create truly one-of-a-kind bourbon/rye blends.
“Add a very soft water to your whisky when doing a tasting, just like the water by the Yamazaki Distillery.”
“If you taste a bourbon and make a face it’s probably too strong. Start with something lower-proof and then work your way up.”
“As you sip, pay specific attention to the earthiness, the peatiness, and those medicinal iodine notes. You’ll get a real sense of place.”
Meeting with friends over whisky or drinks is inherently paired with vibrant conversation. And when we aren’t able to meet in person, we’re lucky we live in an age when can meet virtually.
