Re: Learning to taste the differences in Scotch

The other thing to do is go to your spice rack. Nose through various things like nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. Taste them too. Bringing the aromas and flavours of foodstuffs to the 'whisky tasting table' will definitely help you to broaden your appreciation and to pinpoint your descriptions better. Anothe...

Highland Park 12 Year Old Saint Magnus (55%ABV) topped up with a drop or two of pure Highland water from St. Colman's Well in Ross-Shire... A big Sherry presence in this whisky.

Re: Need suggestions

Would like to try scotch but don't know where to start. Love the complex flavors, but not the strong heat that comes with some spirits. Any suggestions? Just off the top of my head, I'd point you toward... 1. Aberfeldy 12 Year Old - Medium bodied, and very smooth and easy-going. 2. Glenmorangie Ori...

Re: Hosting a tasting for friends, looking for advice.

I have a handful of friends who are entirely unfamiliar with single malts, and I volunteered to introduce them through my own collection... What would you include in an introductory tasting?

Re: Cask strength-Scotch for Dad

A bottle of the 12-year old cask strength Lagavulin would make for a nice change of pace... Sweet malt married to some lovely Islay peat-reeked seashore intensity.
