Really good whiskies and scotches have a certain something about them, a smoky-peaty-honey-orange peel-high pricetag kinda thing.
It is the pricetag that causes me no small amount of distress every December when I set out to buy Brian’s annual bottle of Hannukah distilled happiness: what if he doesn’t like it? And I don’t drink whisky, because it tastes like flambeéd leprechaun piss, so I’m forced to rely on the expertise of liquor store employees and the internet.
Enter Master of Malt, where you can buy 3cl samples of a wide variety of spirits as well as variety packs that allow you to taste a range of spirits from a certain region or distiller. I’m thinking of this staff picks scotch tasting set for Bri.
Your eloquent description of how these spirits taste is spot-on.
Of course one of those would knock me on my barely-five-foot-tall ass, so they would serve a purpose nonetheless.
ooooooohhhh awesome find!!!
This is pure genius!! I, too, share your taste in these spirits. And yet I always take a sip of my husband’s drink, thinking I might magically start liking it. No dice.
Now gin…there is a spirit I can whole-heartily support.
Catching up on a week’s worth of your blog. It must be the Celt in me; I love a good single-malt. My current fave is Balvenie. Love the thought of this tasting set, though!
