I enjoyed the Morning Masterclass at The Scotch Whisky Experience.
The smell test was particularly interesting but over just an average tasting experience.

Excellent tasting guide who provided us a great experience in recognizing different flavors and notes found in four whiskeys. Just as advertised but more personable and the group was enjoyably interactive (from all over the world).

Intéressant, un guide sympa. La dégustation est intéressante avec les différentes odeurs à découvrir. Je ne connaissais pas grand chose au whisky avant d'y aller, mais j'étais épaté par le large choix des dégustations. Mais je m'attendais à voir un peu plus de chose sur la fabrication...Pour ceci prenez l'autre activité du même établissement
