I have to tell you a secret - I love women who know their whiskey. I remember meeting Shatbhi Basu back in 2013 when I attended the first tasting session of hers, and boy, she made cocktails which made my head spin! I really did not want to miss out on another class with her, and I love her, because there is something new to be learned at every session! This time, the American Whiskey tasting session was held in Afraa, and apart from the usual suspects (Jim Beam, Jim Beam Black, Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve, Jack Daniels, and Gentleman Jack), we had a secret entrant to the list.
Of course, once at Afraa, Salt Lake, you really cannot avoid nibbling on their delicious cheese platter, smearing a bit of the brie on a piece of flatbread, or nibble on a cheese straw. I do the same, to prepare myself for the tasting.
Did you know, unlike Scotch, which takes decades at time to age, the maturing process of Bourbon Whiskey and Rye is much less, because of the humid, and hotter weather in America? The warm weather is perfect for quick expansion and contraction of the liquor, which pushes it in and out of the barrel it is contained in, ensuring that the process of inserting the flavors into the liquor is much quicker.
