The Science of Sipping: How to Taste Bourbon Like a Pro

The Five Steps to Proper Tasting

Tasting bourbon is an art that anyone can master with a bit of practice. Follow these five steps to sip in style: a guide to popular bourbon tasting terms. First, look at the bourbon's color. Next, swirl it in the glass to release the aromas. Then, take a small sniff to catch the first scents. After that, take a small sip and let it roll over your tongue. Finally, savor the finish and note how long the flavors last.

Common Tasting Mistakes to Avoid

Even the best bourbon lovers can make mistakes. One common error is drinking too fast. Bourbon should be enjoyed slowly to appreciate its rich flavors. Another mistake is not using the right glass. A tulip-shaped glass helps concentrate the aromas. Lastly, avoid tasting bourbon right after eating spicy food, as it can mess with your taste buds.

  • Glencairn Glass: Perfect for nosing and tasting.
  • Whiskey Stones: Keep your drink cool without watering it down.
  • Tasting Journal: Keep notes on different bourbons you try.
  • Dropper: Add a few drops of water to open up the flavors.
