Iv been blessed with 3 bottles of good whiskey, but Iv never been much of a whiskey taster, so Im trying to do this as best I can.
The 3 are…
- Talisker, Single malt, 10 years (45,8 %)
- Balvenie, Single malt, 14 years (aged on rum casks) (47,5%)
- Tomatin, Single malt, 15 years (43%)
- Smoke, rye
- Sweet, dark & light at the same time
- Clear caramel
Taste (No water)
- Heavy, citrus
- Vapor,spicy, oak
- Caramel, less pronounced compared to the others
Taste (with water drops)
- Opens up more that without. More oak, more depth and harmonie
- Less vapor, more acidity
- More balance, silent finish.
Compared to drinking rum, which I prefer, this is very different. Theres clearly less sweetness to it, but also many other tastes.
What do you think?
