Increase Your Word Power: Oenophile

I came across the word ‘oenophile’ today. I didn’t know what ‘oenophile’ meant, but thanks to the intertubes, now I do.

oenophile |ˈēnəˌfīl| noun

a connoisseur of wines.


oenophilist |ēˈnäfəlist| noun

There you go. We both learned something today.

Unfortunately, there is no cool, fancy term for a connoisseur of whiskeys–at least none that I could uncover. Which I find to be kind of a gyp.
