Hope you enjoy the journey. What did you like about the Glenfiddich and what did you not enjoy about the Jura?
For the Glenfiddich, on my dram yesterday found that there was a subtle taste of peat, an a bit of something else that I cant put my finger on. It give a nice warm feeling as I swalow it and it taste much less stronger that expected.
The Jura had a very strong nose which was feeling very bitter everytime I was getting close to it. I did not recognize anything on the taste because the smell was too strong and it was feeling like drinking cheap canadian whisky.
I'm hopping to have another dram tonight, as I read that I might find something I like as I try more.
What brought me to try whisky is that around 3 year ago, I went to a dinner in a fancy wine restaurent and a friend of mine had a fancy glass of old whisky that he couldnt finish and I got to finish it. It was very smooth and you could taste complex smokey taste.
I'm planning to buy a new bottle next week, but I'm unsure which one I want to try. From what I read here I was thinking of one of the following:
Bruichladdich 10, 15 et 17 sampler
Glenfiddich Solera 15 (to experiment the difference)
The Glenlivet 15 or 18
or a Bowmore
The suggestion that I saw which were not available in Quebec were:
Laphroaig and Ardbeg
