So, what are good summer whiskys? I’m about to pretty much finish off all my open bottles and was contemplating not opening another for a few months, as I find I stick more to beer and white wines in hotter weather, as opposed to whisky and reds in winter.
But if I were to open something, what might be the one to go with. Unopened, in the cupboard (none of which I’ve tried before), I have:
Bruichladdich Scott’s Selection 1989
Highland Park 18
For context, my most recently emptied bottles were:
And I’ve got about 2/3 of a bottle of Abunadh, but will probably open something else before that is finished. What should it be.
And also, in general, do your drinking habits change in summer and winter? What do people see as seasonal whiskys?
For me, I think Talisker is one that is pretty much a cold weather drink. A Bruichladdich (I think it was last summer I drank a bottle of 15 yo) or the Dalwhinnie seem like good summer whiskys.
I think of them more along the line of time of day or meal accompaniment .
But I agree with TH: The Bruichladdich is light - making it good for what you are looking for (or as an aperitif). Of the ones you mention, I'd think the Dalwhinnie, the Balvenie and the Bruichladdich will meet your requirements best.
