Bourbon Tasting Kit

CAD $60.00

Each bourbon is unique, however at the same time you can cluster them into groups with similar interests and characters called flavour camps. The four most common flavour notes found in bourbon are grain, caramel, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and these comprise the major flavour camps. 

This bourbon tasting kit has been organized with a curated selection of bourbons that span these four core bourbon flavour camps creating a unique sample flight. Grouping the bourbons like this helps you to identify the major types of bourbons you prefer, which helps you to zero in on new bourbons to try that belong to similar cohorts. 

All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon. Bourbon must be made in the United States, and its primary grain is corn. The corn used for bourbon is different than the corn on the cob purchased in a grocery store. For bourbon, farmers raise field corn, a variety of maize also referred to as “dent corn.” Unlike the corn you get from a grocery store, you cannot pick field corn straight from the farm and take a bite because it is hard as a rock, an you might loose a tooth! But, in the end, corn matters a lot less than the secondary grains—rye or wheat—which distillers frequently call the flavour grains.

Bourbon Tasting Experience Food Pairing

GREEN & BLACK’s Organic Dark Chocolate For Bourbon Sampler Gift Set

Dark chocolate and bourbon make a great match. The warming, complex nature of most bourbon complements the luxurious, creamy texture of good chocolate.

The underlying sweetness and alcohol bite to bourbon is offset extremely well by the more bitter and lingering flavor of dark chocolate.

Our organic Dark 70% chocolate from GREEN & BLACK’s is made from fine Trinitario cacao beans, providing complex fruit notes and intense bittersweet chocolate aromas.

GREEN & BLACK’S is a chocolate brand founded on sustainable and ethical cocoa sourcing principles.

A great addition to a bourbon birthday gift for those looking to buy bourbon samples online.

How To Enjoy

While you still have the flavours in your mouth after a sip of bourbon, take a piece of chocolate and let it slowly melt and add to the flavour. Then take another sip of bourbon and round it off.

Torres Selecta Potato Chips Black Truffle

Truffles are a bold flavor, and a little goes a long way. The taste of black truffles is a mixture of chocolaty, nutty and earthy. Bourbon pairs well with potato chips and the flavours of black truffle, so we have a fantastic snack that combines both!

Be captivated by the intense woodsy aroma with flavors of garlic, wild mushroom and earthy hazelnut undertones that convert this snack into a real treat for the senses.

Ingredients: Potatoes, sunflower oil, salt, dehydrated black summer truffle (T. aestivum Vitt.) and truffle aroma.
