Flights Patterns

Just what is a Vertical Flight?

 

 

Like with wine, where reds are preferred at room temperature, whites at cooler temperatures, and sparking wines chilled, so too do whiskies react to temperature fluctuations. Everyone grows to recognize their preferences when being served a drink of their choice, be it Neat, On the Rocks, or With Water. If you have grown accustom to one service preference, you may not be as keen towards other styles of service.  Where with a Traditional Flight or Perfect Pairing, you get to explore the differences and similarities between different whiskey styles, distillations, agings such as Small Batches, Single Barrels, Blends.   

With a Vertical Flight we serve three 1 ounce pours of a single whiskey of your choice. We also provide you with a side of water, and a glass with ice. There also great for the true beginner, as you may or may not know what you are getting your taste buds into. Taking a small step along all three of the following roads will better introduce you to which direction best suits your situation at the moment.  There's nothing worse than a bad first impression that doesn't have to be.  

Perfect Pairings

 A 'Perfect Pairing' may mean whatever you wish. Perhaps it's two flavors complimenting themselves in perfect harmony. Perhaps it's a clash of cultures, say sweet versus sour, or mild versus spicey. And perhaps it's the unknown, not knowing what you will find until you try two items side by side for the first time.

Here we offer the chance to try two 1 ounce pours side by side, to compare and contrast the Master Distillers creativity and exploration themselves. Be it from their choice of grains, a higher corn content lends to a sweeter flavor, where a higher rye content brings out a more spicier flavor. A Small Batch blending and a Single Barrel will also reveal a difference in tastes. Even simply changing the percentage of alcohol will change the flavor enough to take notice.
