Thread Name: BS: Question about Scotch
Subject: RE: BS: Question about Scotch
I must say that I tend to use a bit of water in standard strength so I think I would find cask strength too strong for my pallette. I am pretty sure though that the 'standard' 40% ABV came about to standardise whiskys as, ably demonstrated above, cask strengths can vary wildly. I could be wrong of course. And often am!
