Re: Suggestions for Beginners
My suggestion for beginners(and I'm one of them) is buy and try.
My first single malt, about three years ago, was Springbank 15, hardly one normally suggested to novices. The other, suggested at the same time by the guy at the liqour store, was Ardbeg 10!!?? Shit, I mean heavy duty stuff!
I've read many times that members were really turned on to whisky by Laga 16, not exactly 'Livet 12 is it.
If your going to become a whisky lover I can promise there is something out there for you, if it's not the first one you try, then just try something else etc etc, you will stop pretty soon if whisky is not in your blood. Oh, then go back and try the first one again, it might have been better than what you first thought.
