Listen up ladies, this one's for you!
We're getting together with Wingtip and the Women & Whiskies program to bring you a night to explore the world of whisky, through scent! Join us on the 11th floor of Wingtip's decadent VIP special events bar room, as we deconstruct whisky through our trusty noses, aka, the olfactory senses.
Whisky, like a fine wine, can be layered and complex. One whiff may remind you of grandpa's attic or Mom's cocktail of choice, the Manhattan. You may pick up hints of cherry or tobacco, vanilla or cardamom. But how do we untangle and decipher those olfactory layers? And where do those aromas come from?
Yosh Han, world-class perfumer, will take us on a magical journey through the fragrance of six whiskies, using raw perfume materials to identify each whisky's specific aromatics. Along with Yosh, Lucia Gonzales of Women & Whiskies will provide information on each whisky's distillation and aging process, as well as where in the production process the different aromas and flavors we experience originate.
WHAT: An exploration of six different whiskies, through scent.
WHEN: Tuesday 6/3, 7-8:30pm
