MIT Whisky Tasting: Single Malt Scotch Masterclass

Join MIT alumni from across the United States for a masterclass on single malt Scotch whisky!

This is a great event for those who are interested in learning much more about single malt Scotch whisky, including history, production processes, and business aspects. The evening will be led by Nick Taylor, co-founder of Taylor & Taylor Whiskey Co., a leading whisky authority in the United States. Nick will dive deep into the intricacies of single malt and will gladly field your questions about all things Scotch.

No prior knowledge of Scotch required!

Event details:

We recommend procuring one or more of the following single malt Scotches for the evening, as Nick will be using these as references for discussing various effects of the production process.
