Re: Aroma recalling your past.
Lucky for you, Jonpol! For me the malts only bring back earlier experiences of enjoying those malts.
My first malt was 11 years ago when I worked at a large liquor merchant called Total Beverage in Chicago and I purchased my first malt, a bottle of The Balvenie 12, based on the tasting notes I posted next to the price while at work. It said some fancy schmancy stuff about leather and tobacco, and it was weird to drink a spirit straight for the first time, but oddly enough I fell in love!
So, even today I think of that first malt whenever I pour a wee dram of The Balvenie.
