Le Nez du Whisky 54 Aromas
The ideal gift for Whisky lovers, the Le Nez du Whisky 54 aromas kit helps train the senses to recognise the mesmerising aromas of whisky.
The sense of smell constitutes the most important sense in the perception of whisky. But it is often difficult to identify an aroma in your glass of whisky. Have you already encountered the feeling that you know a smell without being able to recognize it? Nothing is more normal! In the same way that we learned to read, write, or count, smelling also requires training.
But “What use is that ?” First of all, recognizing aromas enriches your tasting vocabulary. Being able to attach a word to your impressions increases your tasting pleasure and allows you to share your ideas with others. Then, the aromas of a whisky inform us about its geographic origin and the different steps in its creation: malting, fermentation, distillation, and aging in casks.
LE NEZ DU WHISKY 54 AROMAS HIGHLIGHTS
- 54 individual aromas including fruits, floral, vegetal, spice, animal and roasted notes.
- Aromas are guaranteed for five years so you can keep them and refer to them through your entire WSET/CMS training.
- 54 index cards explaining the aromas and their link to winemaking.
- A guidebook to help you decipher these aromas in context of vineyard, new world vs old world with practical exercises to aid learning.
WHAT DOES LE NEZ DU WHISKY SAY ABOUT THIS PRODUCT?
"The sense of smell constitutes the most important sense in the perception of whisky and produces 80% of the tasting pleasure. No doubt you have noticed that when you have a cold, you no longer taste anything.
Nevertheless, it is often difficult to identify an aroma in your wine glass. Have you already encountered the feeling that you know a smell without being able to recognize it? Nothing is more normal! In the same way that we learned to read, write, or count, smelling also requires training.
A work tool appreciated by professionals, Le Nez du Whisky® functions like a game. Choose the aromas at random, smell them carefully (above all, without looking), classify them, try to name them, and verify the result. In a few weeks, for sure, you will be able to pick out, recognize and above all name these aromas.".
