There’s no better way to warm you both up than whisky tasting. Whilst many of us may consider ourselves educated in the world of wine, whisky is one area that you may have a curiosity about. And if that’s a view that’s also shared by your date, then this might be of interest.
Tasting sessions are less common than for wine, but there are still opportunities out there. It’s worth taking a look. There are so many types of whisky that being able to tap into the experience of a guide will give you a greater understanding of this spirit.
- Shop around and check out the prices; you can sometimes find specials offer
- Talking to specialist whisky distilleries for tasting events
- Either order a taxi or ask someone to drive you to and from the event
- Take tasting notes to refer to later
- Book the tasting session of your choice
- Arrange transport there an back as both of you will be partaking in the tasting sessions
- Read up on whisky so you have a little knowledge beforehand, you can then both really learn as much as possible from the experience
- Take tasting notes throughout about what you like or don’t like about each whisky. You’ll start to get a sense for what’s appealing to you, if whisky is something you haven’t really tried before.
- It’s a perfect opportunity to learn more about what your date likes, and you get to have fun trying them together.
- If there’s something you both like, it’s a great opportunity to purchase a bottle. Perfect for the winter night in!
