Thread Name: BS: Question about Scotch
Subject: RE: BS: Question about Scotch
Isn't it 'interesting' how our tastes differ? Some folks seem to prefer mildish, non-offensive flavors in beer, whiskey...etc. Thus, bland lager beers are so common. Others like something 'distinctive', but disagree on what distinctive flavors. Thus, my avoidance of Laphroig and Ardbeg and Lagavulin, while others seek them out... the more peat the better.
Since I had a good craft season, I treated myself to a bottle of Glen Morangie Nectar D'or that I had previously had only a taste of. I even experimented by mixing (yes, I know...sacrilege) it with about 25% from the final ½ inch of my Springbank. Opinion? If they bottled that blend, I would buy it! The Glenmorangie is delicious and the Springbank adds just a touch of tang that *I* find great.
