Taught by Jonathan Soma
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin, and loves Waffle House about eighteen times more than you.

This class was so popular we opened up a second section! If you bought in before July 12th, you're in the 8:30pm section. If you bought in after, you're in the 7pm one.
Take a look at the different types of whiskeys - bourbon, rye, Scotch, and all the rest. What do they have in common, and what sets some apart? What does geography have to do with it?
Find out how whiskey is made, and what ingredients go into which ones. Unravel the mysteries of aging in French vs. American oak casks, what a mash is, and what the story is with peat in Scotches.
The history and culture of whiskey will play a role, too - how rye was done in by Prohibition, where cocktails come from and what the whiskey world is up to now.
All of this leads up to buying whiskey. We'll decipher labels and brands to figure out just what you'll want to be purchasing.
