In this second volume of The Canadian Whisky Master Class: whisky connoisseurs and amateur enthusiasts are constantly seeking ways to better understand the many differences between Canadian, Scotch, Irish and American whiskeys.

J.P. Wiser’s launched “Blend Your Own” whisky classes to help consumers better understand the distinctive characteristics of over 140 different styles of Canadian whisky. During these sessions, participants also have an opportunity to blend whisky to their tastes. “Blending 101 - The Canadian Whisky Master Class” is a compendium of these sessions.

This book introduces the innovative Canadian Whisky Flavour wheel developed by Master Blender Dr. Don Livermore, illustrating how grain, fermentation, and ageing in wood casks contribute to unique whisky flavour profiles. Next, it examines the importance of the distillation process and its effect on whisky. Lastly, it explores various blending methods, which brings everything together to create unique Canadian whiskies.

"Blending 101" also charts Canadian whisky-making practices from the mid-1800s to the 21st century, including the evolution of the science and precision required to develop consistent, high-quality Canadian whisky.
