      Bourbon Sensory Analysis II: Advanced Bourbon Sensory Analysis • DEC 11 • KY Bourbon School (was Bourbon University) @ The Kentucky Castle

      A quality Bourbon can contain over 200 flavors divided into five primary categories: • Grains• Tree (wood and nut)• Sweet• Spice• Botanical (primarily fruit and floral) Like fine wine, it takes palate education and practice to learn to detect the subtle and nuanced aromas and flavors of a complex Bourbon. We’ll explore advanced Bourbon sensory analysis through varying levels of blind tasting,  The Kentucky Castle's Bourbon-Steward-In-Residence (& Bourbon industry insider) Tim Knittel will guide you through: Aroma, mouthfeel, front palate, mid-palate and finish Aromatic “taste” and taste bud vs olfactory sensation Orthonasal vs retronasal breathing and the post-swallowing volatile congeners release Use of aromatic aids in Bourbon flavor identification Resetting (baselining) sensory perception Fault identification in Bourbon First, you’ll develop your aroma (palate) memory through nosing selected extracts and isolates. Then, you’ll use those aromas to blind-identify 5 Bourbons using professional tasting notes and place them in their correct categories: wheated Bourbon, traditional/low rye Bourbon, American rye whiskey, fruit-floral forward Bourbon and finished Bourbon.
