Train your nose to find the nuances in bourbon.

Do you roll your eyes when you read reviews that note "dark cherry, brown sugar, and leather," and think, there is NO WAY that someone is tasting all of that in their bourbon? I did too, until I realized that it was simply a lack of experience, and that I could train my nose to find the nuances in bourbon. Sensory scientists have proven that over 80% of what we taste comes from what we smell, and that's why I created these bourbon nosing kits. By simply training your nose to become more familiar with these aromas, you'll be able to more easily detect them in a glass of bourbon.

How it works:
- Pour some bourbon in a glass and swirl it around gently.
- Nose (smell) one of the elements, then nose your bourbon.
- Take a small sip and “chew” the bourbon around in your mouth for 5-10 seconds before swallowing.
- Nose the element and the bourbon again. The aromas present should be more amplified now.
- Take note of what aromas you find in the bourbon you’re nosing. If it smells sweet, can you get more specific? Maybe it’s more like vanilla, honey, or brown sugar. If it's spicy, is it a cinnamon spice or black pepper spice?
- Repeat the process with each element to see what other nuances you can find in your glass

Other nosing kits cost hundreds of dollars and use synthetic aromas made in a lab. These kits are made with the REAL ingredients for the most authentic aroma.

The elements in this kit represent the wood, grain, sweet, spice and fruit/floral categories commonly found in a bourbon tasting wheel. Includes 18 elements in screw top containers and instructions for how to get the most out of the kit, all held in a convenient travel case.

Elements included:
Vanilla (bean)
Cocoa (powder)
Brown Sugar
Cherry (dried)
Tobacco (premium pipe tobacco)
Leather (100% genuine leather)
Black Pepper
Mint (crushed leaves)
Peanut (powder)

Contains peanuts. Not for consumption.

Very nice kit. And the value is fantastic, IMO…could I have put all this together myself? Yeah. For the same price or less? No. With the same presentable quality? No way. The seller is responsive as well; I am a little jealous, though. He has a side-hustle based on bourbon and is making money! Still, I am happy to support a fellow bourbon lover. Buy this kit, you will not regret it!

If you are a bourbon lover then this is the right product for you! The kit is high quality, the shipping was quick, and message response was pronto. Cannot wait to use this and the expansion kit to really "nose your bourbon".

Great kit! My bourbon loving husband belongs to a bourbon club and I feel like he will absolutely love it to learn more. I already recommended it to a friend as soon as I opened it.
