Customer Reviews

Fantastic course - great value for money Review by Jim
I attended this course in Jan/Feb 17. I was a complete novice. I met some of Ireland's best whiskey experts, tasted over 30 fantastic whiskeys, many of which I would probably never have tasted.

Above all I came away knowing a LOT more about whiskey and how to taste it.

Mark is a great teacher, his approach is encompassing of everyone, novice and expert. I really appreciated this aspect of it.

Undoubtedly a top course in Ireland - do it!

You will really love it.
