After a rather splendid little get together recently, one of the bottles brought by my friend and fellow forum-moderator Bart wasn’t tasted due to an excess of good whisky (always a good state to find yourself in, I find). So I drew a sample.
This is the story of that sample.
Success at last! I actually guessed right last night! Now to prepare for the inevitable doom which shall befall me upon tasting tonight’s sample #6. It is fruity, slightly salty and a little smoky…
We are nearing the end of the inaugural High End Blind Tasting. This is sample 6, and I am not ashamed to say it reduced my linguistic capacity to a prehistoric level of stammering and guttural noises at one point during the tasting of it. I will attempt, having teased my higher brain functions out from their hiding place behind a large rock, to explain.
