Thread Name: BS: Question about Scotch
Subject: RE: BS: Question about Scotch
I haven't tried them all, but because they dry the germinated barley in ovens rather than over fires, they do not get any flavours from it - this is a deliberate ploicy and is part of the Irish wiskey standard, it ia also triple distliied rather than twice like scotch, so ther eis little scope for flavours apart from aging in barells, but most have a very clean smopoth taste.
