Have you ever asked yourself: "What makes a rum taste like rum and what makes bourbon taste like bourbon?" If so, the Chemical Compositions session is for you.
Much like an orchestra consists of different instruments that play in unison to create complex musical compositions, so too the chemical compounds in spirits.
This session will give you a chance to smell, taste and understand the sensory qualities of these chemical soloists giving you a much better understanding of how spirits are created. With this new found knowledge you will be able to step beyond taste generalizations like "fruity" or "ester" and add terms like ethyl heptanoate and 4-methoxybenzyl alcohol to your vocabulary.
If you are a distiller, spirit reviewer, scientist, knowledge hoarder or just curious, then this session will expand your mind and give you new insight into the world of distilled spirits.
