To quote Nick:
Obviously, it would be the single malt that tasted better.
That sounds a bit dominating if you ask me. And he isn't the only one making similair comments in this thread.
Nick has a very dry sense of humor. I'm pretty used to it, but even I missed the tenor of his post at first. He was kidding, intentionally taking what he sees as an absurd postion.
No, I know--"I am so good at whisky tasting" and "single malts are far more complex than blends ever could be" and "Do people prefer Highland Park 30yo or Macallan 30yo?" are all things he obviously believes are patently unbelievable and obnoxious. But you aren't Nick's first victim, TH (
), and you won't be his last! I actually agreed with something he was holding up as rubbish.
See my comments above--I plead jet lag.
We all have strong opinions and aren't shy about expressing them, but I think we all share an attitude that may best be expressed by paraphrasing someone who wasn't Voltaire: I may think you are nuts to drink that whisky in that manner, but I will defend to the dea--uh...very strongly your right to do so.
