Once again Martine Nouet & Johanne McInnis will delight lucky attendees with an educational but light and funny master class. The lovely duo will lead participants through a tasting of 6 different whiskies that showcase specific aromas and flavours that are often found and recognizable to every whisky imbiber. A combination of chemistry, mischief and poking fun at our ability to nose whiskies is to be expected and hopefully enjoyed by all.
