How To Train Your Senses For Whiskey Tasting

The legendary Parker Beam once said, “People say they taste mangoes and leather. I don’t put mangoes or leather in the whiskey. I put in corn, and I age it in oak barrels and that’s what I taste: corn and oak!” If the Master Distiller of Heaven Hill wasn’t focused on identifying 11 exotic flavors with every sip, don’t be so hard on your own palate. Often times it’s quite sufficient to describe flavors as “sweet”, “fruity”, “floral”, “bitter” or “spicy.” Tasting whiskey is a personal experience. The goal isn’t to list the most descriptors about a pour – it’s to explore what you do and don’t enjoy drinking.
