          Really helps one develop one's tasting abilities. Teaches exactly what you taste in the glass and how to describe it. Helps deepen appreciation of various wines.

              The wine world was a blur to me! I found the essence kit for tasting and it made a huge difference by helping me train my palate to detect certain flavors in wine. This is not an aroma kit, but a tastes kit. I will use it repeatedly. My next kit will be a nose kit to further train my senses.

                  Other essence kits I've seen have pamphlets or books included to unravel the scent mystery. Not this one. There is not even a scale of thresholds of identification or dosage included, so you are on your own to explore the nine(9) principal wine characteristics. I'm glad it was on sale!

                  Comments about Wine Enthusiast Wine Essence Kit:

                  We used this when we were entertaining last weekend - thought it would be a fun ice-breaker and help us learn about the wines we were drinking that evening. Followed the instructions, but no one could actually taste anything most of the time. I wonder if I should have spent the extra money and gotten the one with the aromas as well, but didn't even see it at the time.

                    Comments about Wine Essence Kit:

                    I was so excited to get this kit to help teach my staff to better be able to identify characteristics of wine and this was just such a disappointment. The oak and tannin flavors didn't change/were not detectable no matter how many drops I put in the base water (and I have certifications from WSET, Court of Masters & Society of Wine Educators so I know my stuff). The sour and bitter tasted the same. The fruity was severely artificial, the smooth tasted like vanilla. The floral was the only one that I felt was accurate. I was really hoping this would be a useful tool and it just wasn't, try a different brand maybe?
