Now Now Now.....don't take everything I say to serious or to heart
, Mr tattie you know me, poking fun and stirring things up just for the sake of it....
For me, it's like drinking apple pie (that has been spiked with a nice Highland malt).
If I want apple pie I'll just go buy one and put it in the blender, if I wanna' drink it..... I like scotch because it tastes like scotch, nothing else taste like that, (similar to other thinks you might say, but not the same)that's why I like it and buy it.
And when I eat my apple pie, I don't try to imagine what kind of scotch it tastes like or anything else.
Where, when, how ? did this whole thing get started with everyone trying to imagine what flavors they could find in all of this, scotch, wine, liquor, etc...
I think we are all trying to make more out of this than it really is, perhaps to impress others, or perhaps we feel we need to do it because it part of the game, you know like wearing those silly special pants to ride your bike.
Leave those perfect tasting tongues to the real experts whole really need to discen liquid characterists with a simple taste, to see if a wine is ready to bottle, to know how long it will cellar, or to blend whiskey, etc, etc, etc.............for us consumers, just drink you wine, scotch, whatever...and forget all the pretentiousness.
The one think I long to see or would like to know about when I purchase a new bottle of scotch would be a catagorize list that simply groups scotch together, so I know what to expect....Now I'm no expert but I could 'objectively' not 'subjectively' but certain whiskey in to simple general groups by taste.
If someone knows where such a list exists kindly let me know.........and don't say....Islay, Higland, dah, dah.....I know that much already
Well I see this thread has degenerated into something else beside the topic.........in no small part thanks to me............
