Is it Whisky or Whiskey?

Scotch whisky is always spelled without an "e", so are Japanese and Canadian.

Other Frequently Asked Questions about Whisky Tastings

1. What are the differences between a flight, a masterclass, and a tasting?

Flight: A whisky flight typically consists of a selection of whiskies presented side by side for comparison. 

Tasting: A general whisky tasting can be considered a more casual experience where participants sample a variety of whiskies, usually with some guidance from a host. It’s less structured than a masterclass but more guided than a flight.

Masterclass: A masterclass is an educational experience where an expert, often a master distiller or a whisky sommelier, leads participants through a detailed session.

2. What is a good pairing for whisky?

A good pairing for whisky enhances both the drink and the accompanying food. Classic options include rich cheeses, dark chocolate, smoked meats, and for lighter whiskies, seafood like salmon or grilled prawns, each chosen to complement the specific flavour profile of the whisky.

3. What session is good for a beginner?

A beginner should look for a guided tasting session that covers basic whisky styles, regions, and tasting techniques. These sessions are designed to be informative yet accessible, providing a supportive environment for newcomers to develop their understanding and appreciation of whisky.
