how to conduct a whisky tasting

Postby tinwhistle » Wed Aug 14, 2002 9:27 pm

I have a Scot & Irish gift store. In it I carry Whisky magazine. Now people want me to host a whisky tasting, but I know nothing about how to do it. Does one use an official tasting glass? If so, what is preferred? How many varieties are expected at one tasting? Does one serve food? Is there a protocol that I need to be aware of? Can someone out there please help me?

Thank you.

You can also try and for advice on glassware and tasting whisky.

Glassware is very important, as is the selection of whiskies and the nosing/tasting procedure.

Let me know if you need some advice.
