How to Taste Single Malt Scotch

OK, this one's for you Grandpa Irv. Here are complete instructions on how to taste a single malt scotch. I especially like the comment: "Repeat steps 5 through 8 until all of the whiskey is gone. Be sure to notice how the flavors and aromas change throughout your session.". I'll bet you notice a change in flavors.

Seriously, next time we break out a bottle of scotch, I'll have to give this whole watering-down thing a try.

Frankly, I'm looking for a way to use the phrase nose in conversation more often.

  1. This works great for all single malts including things like a good Tequila. Most people "waste" tequila by shooting it, but a good reposado and anejo should be treated like any good whiskey. Also it is definitely true about the second and sequential tastes, one should never judge a whiskey by the first.
