DON'T SWIRL YOUR BOURBON IF YOU'RE TRYING TO TASTE IT LIKE A PRO
Swirling bourbon can actually hinder your ability to taste it properly.
Swirling can cause the alcohol to evaporate too quickly, leading to a less enjoyable tasting experience.
Instead of swirling, try gently tilting the glass to release the aromas.
Take small sips and let the bourbon sit on your tongue for a few seconds before swallowing.
Pay attention to the flavors and notes you taste, such as vanilla or caramel.
Consider the mouthfeel and texture of the bourbon as well.
Experiment with different glasses and temperatures to find what works best for you.
Remember that tasting bourbon is a personal experience and there is no right or wrong way to do it.
