Whiskey tasting

02 May


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…

  1. Talisker, Single malt, 10 years (45,8 %)
  2. Balvenie, Single malt, 14 years (aged on rum casks) (47,5%)
  3. Tomatin, Single malt, 15 years (43%)




  1. Smoke, rye
  2. Sweet, dark & light at the same time
  3. Clear caramel


Taste (No water)

  1. Heavy, citrus
  2. Vapor,spicy, oak
  3. Caramel, less pronounced compared to the others

Taste (with water drops)

  1. Opens up more that without. More oak, more depth and harmonie
  2. Less vapor, more acidity
  3. 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?

Yes, you can easily make your own beer!

Who can make beer?

With my experience I usually say that anyone can make beer, because you can always find a method that anyone can contribute. I usually also say that if you have to enjoy the process and ensure that you make great beer, it’s a great help to you also like to cook.
The reason is very simple: To brew beer recalls having to learn how to make good food again from scratch. One must understand the different ingredients and how they together form the taste.
