“Add a very soft water to your whisky when doing a tasting, just like the water by the Yamazaki Distillery.”
“If you taste a bourbon and make a face it’s probably too strong. Start with something lower-proof and then work your way up.”
“As you sip, pay specific attention to the earthiness, the peatiness, and those medicinal iodine notes. You’ll get a real sense of place.”
Meeting with friends over whisky or drinks is inherently paired with vibrant conversation. And when we aren’t able to meet in person, we’re lucky we live in an age when can meet virtually.
