Masterclasses […]

The Whisky Live Paris 2013 did not lack Masterclasses. I attended in some of them. For non-orienting in the topic I might add that these additional activities are in groups. They may relate to general issues of whisky or a particular distillery, but they are always connected with the tasting. Places are limited, so to avoid disappointment you need to book in advance. The first Masterclass – Whiskies du monde – Blind Tasting was guided by Salvatore Maninno. Blind tasting is a very nice idea. You can think about whisky, its nose, flavors, finish, without any prior assumptions and prejudices associated with a particular distillery, age, type of casks, etc. It is a very good exercise, improving tasting abilities. In my case, this Masterclass was tasting not only blind but also deaf, as was held in French, which I do not speak. But, it is not that bad. I just had to explore the contents of the glass myself. At the end the secret has been revealed, we tasted: Macmayra from Sweden, Penderyn from Wales, Sullivans Cove and Hellyers Road from Tasmania, The New Zealand Whisky, Armorik from France and Amrut from India.

Unfortunately I didnt take part in these classes, I started too late with booking tickets and Masterclass has already been sold out. Too bad. However, by the courtesy of my friends I could try a few Karuizawas - vintages 1971 and 1977, bottled in 2012 for Taiwan and 1973, 1974 bottled in 2013. All were delicious.

    This year the organizers decided not to do payable Masterclasses in favor of included in the ticket price Mini Stages, of course with limited seating.

    In the case of whisky, Mini Stages consisted of a presentation of whiksy expression specially prepared and bottled for the Tokyo Intenational Bar Show & Whisky Live Tokyo, talking about the history of the distillery and of course tasting. Demonstrations were run by representatives of producers with the participation of Dave Broom - editor of Whisky Magazine. Everything was smoothly translated from English to Japanese. It concerned interesing situations, as in Japanese there are many words,...
