Halo Single Malt Scotch whisky lovers
I am researching how to best taste scotch whisky and found this. My son likes the young stuff whiskily speaking but I don’t. The Scots themselves simply like whisky.
Here is a little known fact:
5. Scottish folk wisdom has it that younger whiskies give you less of a hangover. Back in the 19th century, distillery employees were given a couple shots per day of so-called “new make,” the clear spirit that comes straight out of the stills, as a perk of the job. New make was supposedly the tipple of choice because it would render employees less dazed the next morning than older, barrel-aged whisky, owing to its greater purity.
i like the flavors and smells of whisky matured in oak casks and I don’t get a hangover either. But I don’t do shots . I sip and savor the fine whisky…
Most experts want you to swirl the whisky in your snifter. Some don’t.
Whisky tasting is a very personal experience and no-one can really tell you what to like or not like. They can try but it is really up to you.
I would like to make a toast to lying, stealing, cheating and drinking. If you’re going to lie, lie for a friend. If you’re going to steal, steal a heart. If your going to cheat, cheat death. And if you’re going to drink, drink with me.
Slàinte mhòr agus a h-uile beannachd duibh.
Great health and every good blessing to you
