Discussing :: How to appreciate whisky

A good single malt whisky is not meant to be knocked back as one might a ‘shot’. It should be savoured slowly and appreciated. One of the most important things is the glass that you sample the whisky in. The best glass is clear and tulip shaped. The narrower top keeps the flavours and aromas of the whisky in the glass, allowing you ample time to ‘nose’ and taste the whisky.

does anyone have any recommendations for someone who enjoys whiskey, but has really no idea what he's looking for? i mean single malts a ideal, but apart from that i don't have much idea. cheers.


If you can get your hands on any of the Springbank range, you'd be heading in the right direction... but don't take my word for it: http://www.springbankwhisky.com/springbank/


legend cheers


there are a range of different scotches from different regions of scotland.

depending on your taste, you can enjoy alot of different ones. If you like smokey peaty, try laphriog. Talisker, Oban and Longmore are all nice smooth single malts.

my personal favourite is lagavulin, but its is hard to find nowdays.

enjoy your tasting

If it's aged around 18 years that's when they're at their best. Oh, and whiskys are good too.

I find Glenfiddich has a nice enjoyable single-malt. Very much recommended. And if anyone gets the chance, visit the Jameson's distillery in Dublin. Good experience for a whisky lover.
