Aroma recalling you past.

What specific scotch expressions bring about total recall of your childhood or other early memories ?

Ardbeg 10 brings back me standing on the pitchers mound eating my baseball glove. Or, bored out in center field waiting for a bomb. Baseball :smoke:

Lucky for you, Jonpol! For me the malts only bring back earlier experiences of enjoying those malts.

My first malt was 11 years ago when I worked at a large liquor merchant called Total Beverage in Chicago and I purchased my first malt, a bottle of The Balvenie 12, based on the tasting notes I posted next to the price while at work. It said some fancy schmancy stuff about leather and tobacco, and it was weird to drink a spirit straight for the first time, but oddly enough I fell in love!

So, even today I think of that first malt whenever I pour a wee dram of The Balvenie.

Turmberry April 2004. I nose a 1946 Macallan that I can smell to this day.

I'm back in my grannie's old oak linen cabinet...only someone's poured a bunch of fresh lemons into it.

Otherwise, a couple of big wee drams and I am a child!

Well then I need to have malt whisky more often than simply as a nightcap. It's not fair that your tasting experiences are anchored to something more pleasant, whereas mine usually just make me sleepy. :cry:
