Bourbon Palate Training @ Mellow Mushroom in Somerset

March 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Mellow Mushroom of Somerset and Distilled Living are excited to announce our third bourbon tasting dinner! 

-Bourbon Palate Training-
March 27th 6PM

Did you know a good bourbon can have the flavor depth of fine wine and a quality bourbon can have hundreds of individual flavor elements? If you’ve ever read bourbon tasting notes and thought, ‘I wish I could taste all those flavors in bourbon,’ then this is the event for you!

Professional bourbon educator Tim Knittel is coming back to Somerset Mellow Mushroom on March 27th for a guided bourbon palate training experience. By utilizing proper nosing and tasting techniques and pairing a variety of bourbons with select food elements, you’ll develop your ‘palate memory’ and learn to pull out the nuanced flavors of fine bourbons. Each of the five categories of bourbon flavor – sweet, tree, grain, botanical and spice – will be individually explored then your new bourbon tastebuds will be put to the test with a ‘complex and balanced’ bourbon at the end of the training.

$40 per ticket
Tickets can be purchased online by following the link
or by calling the restaurant at 606-416-5146
