Frenchwoman Martine Nouet, author and journalist specializing in cuisine and spirits and Scottish by adoption, looked into the art of delicately bringing the spirit of the dish and the spirit of the malt into harmony.

Le Nez du Whiskey allows you to:

1. Train and enrich your olfactory memory…
Smell is the most important sense in perceiving a whisky. However, it is often difficult to identify an aroma in your glass of whiskey. Have you ever experienced the feeling of knowing but not recognizing a smell?
Nothing more normal ! In the same way that we learned to read, write, and count, feeling requires learning.

2. …to better analyze the whiskeys you taste
But what is that for ? » First of all, recognizing aromas enriches the tasting vocabulary. Or put a word on your impressions increases the pleasure of tasting and allows you to exchange with others. Then, the aromas of the whiskey inform us about its geographical origin and the different stages of its production: malting, fermentation, distillation and aging in barrels.

The Whiskey Nose therefore allows you not only to perfect your olfactory sense but also to understand the whiskey manufacturing process behind the aromas.

A book aimed at both professionals and amateurs wishing to deepen their knowledge
