Whiskey Class is in session.

Alobar, located at 46-42 Vernon Blvd., will host its second “Whiskey Class” tasting at 7 p.m. Thursday night, and plans to continue the event every few months.

Tickets to tomorrow’s tasting cost $50, which includes a sampling of five different whiskeys as well as snacks, such as maple bacon popcorn, breads and cheeses, according to the bar’s General Manager Paul Cucinella.

Tasting participants will receive three-quarters of an ounce (half shot) of each whiskey. All of the whiskey tasted tomorrow will be from states west of the Mississippi River, Cucinella said.

“We go one by one through all the whiskeys,” Cucinella said. “We look at it, smell it, taste it and then we all talk about it.”

“It is a very fun night,” he added.

Cucinella said he likes to limit the participants to about 20 “students.” So far they have sold 20 tickets. However, he said he could push the number of participants up to 22 people, but would not want to exceed that.

“It makes it much more interactive with a smaller group,” he said.

This is the second event of its kind and the bar plans to host more going forward, Cucinella said.

“We want to host about four to six a year,” he said. “That would be one every two to four months.”

Tickets to the event can be purchased online.

In addition to the whiskey night Alobar has switched its draft to feature only craft beers that are brewed in New York.

“We have beers from all over the city and state,” Cucinella said.

They also offer a bourbon shot plus beer special for $6.
