Actually, you're probably right but everyone tends to use the two names interchangeably over here. Not sure there's formally a difference but there're definitely some pungent versions and some that are pretty tame.
@dsc123 instead of ice, just add a few drops of spring water. It will still soften the scotch a bit and open up the bouquet. Ice tends to carry a stale "freezer" taste that you don't want in your scotch and chilling the scotch deadens the vapours and hence the flavours. I actually sometimes steam my glass quickly with the espresso machine before pouring to get more vapours.
Alright, Ernest. I'll give that a try. Thanks!
Nice! I think Macallan 12 is one of the outstanding values in whisky. I actually prefer it over the 18.
I put a little dent in this Saturday evening......
Still drinking the Speyburn 10. However, tonight I decided to finally @Ernest Jones's tip about only adding a couple drops of water instead of my usual couple ice cubes... Well EJ, it seems that you may in fact know what you're talking about... Much better for sure.
Now you're drinking scotch!
$52?? That's a great price. Macallan was one of my first real scotch love affaires. If you ever have a chance to taste the 25 year old, do it!
yeah, its really tasty. not overpowering, and i like the lip smacking sweet undertones it has.
