Mystery Tasting at The Whisky Shop
We took to our Glasgow shop to gather some first impressions on a secretive new whisky coming out at the end of May. Blind-tastings are a great way to sample whisky, unburdened by any pretences about region, brand or flavour. Lets hear some honest thoughts from the people of Scotland's second city!
"Mmm, that's quite nice. Tastes sort of like an Islay. Rings a bell with Craigellachie."
"Easy, smooth, not too much burn - which is always the yay or nay for me when going for a whisky."
"It's quite similar to a whisky I've had before. Sweet and quite smooth."
"Really good, really smooth, really easy to drink. I really enjoy that, it's beautiful. It gets better, actually. The taste gets better as it goes on. Little bit chocolatey, sort of sweet, chocolatey, vanilla-ry. Just very smooth, not coarse or anything like that. Very light."
