Whisky 101 – (South)

Enjoying whisky starts with tasting it. Tasting is more than drinking: it’s evaluating and understanding in order to better appreciate the whisky.

Mark Nicholson from The Distillery School at Old Kempton Distillery, who is well known and well versed in the whisky world, from Tasmania to Scotland will be taking you on a journey with distillers at The Crescent Hotel, Hobart.

Developing your nose and palate is a practice that takes time and experience. Learn how a professional whisky educator and distiller approaches tasting and you’ll be setting yourself up for a range of flavour and discovery.

From how whisky is made, to how each step influences the final product and flavour. Learn how to taste and why you taste the things you do.

Mark and the distillers will offer sound advice (and a bit of banter) to better inform your whisky tasting experience.
