Sequencing whisky drams
“Sequencing” is a term I will use to describe purposely moving from one whisky to another with the idea of influencing subsequent flavors. For example, I find that a dram of a light, unpeated whisky tends to enhance the smoke in a subsequent dram of a heavily peated malt.
Now bear with me, I’m relatively new to the Single Malt world so maybe I’m being naive. Perhaps this is old stuff. Yet I haven’t found this topic explicitly discussed on the forum, by the term I use or by some other. I have, however, seen many references to what one ate immediately before enjoying a dram to influence certain flavors of that particular dram. So then, my question is: do other folks sometime (often, never) move from one Scotch to the next in a purposeful, ordered sequence with the idea of enhancing the desirable characteristics of a subsequent dram?
