In your opinion, what is the sweetest of the Scottish Single Malts?
(Relax, I'm just stirring and having fun! )
The sweetest malt I've ever had was a private bottling of Glen Grant, Cask No. 5003, distilled in 1961 and bottled in 1983. (And then opened and tasted in 2004!!)
However, since that was a one-off, I should probably list a bottling that is more commonly available.
I agree with you that the Glenfarclas 15 is a sweet drop, but there's sweeter going around. Aberlour A'bunadh is a good example. Sometimes, even Ardbeg 10 strikes me as being very sweet.
A weird point came up too while searching for the sweetest rated malt in my notes, i came up with 2 other malts that are so sweet it drowns the balance.
i know i shouldnt, but honestly fobids so i will post it anyway, i was suprised myself when i saw it so be gentle, the two others are Ardbeg 17 and Port Ellen 79 Signatory Cask Strength.
Ardbeg 17... any opinions? anyone else found it to be too sweet? It doesnt mean its bad ok, i rated it 91 .
For a slightly different twist, how about the saltiest malt? I had a Bowmore cs the other night and a saltiness kept building until I found it unpleasant. A few drops of water and a little time to breathe resulted in a noticeable improvement.
