Balvenie Whisky Academy

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Balvenie Whisky AcademyThe Balvenie Warehouse 24 has now been expanded with a Whisky Academy. It contains four modules explaining a lot of common aspects about whisky (history, production, types of whisky, regions, aromas…) as well as some less common subjects (investing, quality vs. appreciation, terroirs…)

Balvenie’s Global Ambassador David Mair and whisky doctor Sam Simmons (now brand ambassador) are hosting 35 videos, and they’re interviewing people like David Stewart, Gavin D. Smith, Sukhinder Singh, Eddie Ludlow and Charles MacLean.

I don’t usually pass along press releases, but this time you should really check it out and dedicate some time to the videos.

    Thank you, Gal.
    And thanks for spreading the word, Ruben.
    We are all really happy with the results and hope people at all points on their whisky journey get something out it.

    Just to clarify, David MAIR hosts the bulk of the series, although David STEWART does make a few appearances in module 4

    Thanks again, Ruben.
