Enjoyed the whiskey selection but think the teacher was wrong or uninformed on several points.

Great course, very interesting and informative. Great wines as well :-) Sommelier got distracted too easily by questions, getting off topic, but very knowledgeable.

Could have been amazing but didn't really learn much. The whiskey selection was clever but too much historical details and not enough what we should look for in a whiskey. Teacher was a nice guy, but didn't answer the questions. I asked about triple distilled as was on one of the forms, but he didn't understand or elaborate. I would recommend the restaurant, but not the actual class.

Instructor let himself get distracted by two people asking redundant questions he had previously answered. The result was that we had to cover the 6 wines in 30 minutes instead of 90 minutes. Didn't feel like we learned anything insightful / applicable to the next time we try the wines. Could have asked them to save their questions for after the session.

I thought that it would be a lesson for beginners so I did not understand the most but it was a good introduction for us to know about wine:) Thank you!
