In the past year and a half, we completed three, 20 expression tastings of bourbon and rye in varying levels of comparison. Now for the fourth and final, final of the series we are doing a split where the assignment is to pick rye or bourbon and then rank on a scale of 1-5. We will have everyone tally the style of whiskey and grade them on Zoom poll questions, and after all 20 have been tallied, we will reveal the bottles.
A scorecard will be included in each kit. We strongly suggest tasting + grading the whiskeys (notes, ratings scored, and choose rye vs bourbon) over several days BEFORE the Zoom. Also suggested is to save about a 1/3 to re-taste during the live event. This is a chance to try whiskies of varying degrees of quality and price, blindly, next to each other —and then see how it all nets out. This will be a small meeting of about 25 members just like the previous.
mark and score the 20 samples BEFORE the Zoom event
