Re: Do You Really Taste Salt?
There isn't any salt, as in table salt, in whisky but then there isn't chocolate, heather, roses, cardboard, rubber, cat pee, wine gums, cheese, bandages, coast line or anything of the like.
However some of these aromas and flavours are there, including salty aromas and flavours. Why people insist on looking for actual salt in whisky is beyond me. It's not there but salty aromas and flavours are.
It's quite simple.
