Science supports not diluting whiskey. Science says diluting it separates guaiacol from the rest and makes it float to the top. This makes the first sip more flavorful at the expense of every other sip. This is retarded and nobody should do it.

My brother of African descent. My all-time favorite.
"Light smoke" is inaccurate, though. Its phenol ppm is about the same as Ardbeg's. It is pretty damn smoky. It is heavily-peated.
The lemon oil, peat and very slight sweetness just play so well with each other. It's a dram that really rewards keeping it on the tongue for a long time before swallowing. You get peat and a hint of sweetness at first, then a massive wave of lemon, then more peat on the finish. The lemon in the middle is super intense and the best part.

on a very basic level it's incorrect though.
Collection hobbies have two major "quality" factors: difficulty of collection and usefulness outside of displaying. Funko pops are garbage because they meet neither requirement. They come from one major manufacturer so to get them you have to be a scalper or just a rich moron, and then once you've spent eight thousand dollars all you do with it is show other retarted faggots that you spent eight thousand dollars on this piece of plastic. Whiskey is also easy to collect, but the market is not as easily manipulated as funko pop, and as it's consumable it has an inherent value.

Skip the bourbon one, kavalan pours liquid jesus christ into wine barrels, I prefer the port cask to the vinho barrique but both are crazy intense and different, in terms of intensity of the port one it's like you made a concentrated and more complex version of an a'bunadh or glendronach cask strength. Vinho barrique is less intense and sweet than the port one, and it's more complex, it gets weird like mulchy.

oh fuck, here the port and vinho are around 100-120€ thats why I talked about them, the fino and more expensive ones were 260€+. I don't have enough experience with whiskeys that cost above 200€ so I cannot really tell if there is something that is so much better that kavalan would feel like waste of money, but if you are into wine finishes, sooner or later you will have to get to kavalan.

ok so I just finished my Glendronach 15 and moved on to this cheapass sherry scotch.

while price isn't an indicator of quality, I'm going from an 80$ bottle to one that is under 18$ even after taxes and trump's tariff.

butter toast and butter cookies, also they tend to be bright with the alcohol, like all the other notes in them are nice, smooth and swet so the alcohol if not aged properly tends to be sharp and stick out. Also they use different stills, if you cannot see the difference here try comparing pot still rum to non pot still rum, the difference is much more pronounced there. I kind of wish more irish destileries were into finising with wine barrels, irish aged in tawny port, madeira, tokaji would be a treat.

No, I'm suggesting you stop being a prissy picky little faggot who only drinks 200$ scotches because your pathetic little stubs of taste buds get sensitive to anything that wasn't expensive. I could easily name a 50$ whiskey that outclasses several 200-300$ whiskey's any day of the week.

Cost has nothing to do with quality in the whiskey world, it has to do with rarity. The reason 25 year old whiskey's are expensive isn't because they're the most amazing thing on earth, it's because they're rare as fuck, and a good amount of 20 year olds tend to end up tasting half as good as the 10 year olds anyway.

That's because you're obviously comparing bottom shelf stuff to top shelf stuff (which, I would rather drink bottom shelf irish than bottom shelf scotch literally EVERY single time).

Can't go wrong with Jameson. For people who don't drink whiskey often other than when they go to the bar, it's considered one of the more "sophisticated" drinks to get (Jameson on the rocks).

Overall it's not a bad whiskey, certainly damn good for the price it is. I tend to drift towards and away from Jameson. Sometimes its so floral it disgusts me, and sometimes it's soft and elegant and lulls me into relaxation. Try getting a bottle of Kilbeggan if you liked Jameson, it's another really good Irish whiskey.

METHODS

>Dilution
Just take a glass of whiskey, take a sip, see how it tastes. Can you taste any notes in it? Oaky notes? Sweet notes? Spice notes? If not, add a teaspoon of water too it, let it sit for a minute or two, then take another sip. Any change noticed?

>Freezer method
Take your bottle of whiskey, put it in the freezer. Give it about an hour, take it out, and pour a small shot of it, and see what it tastes like. Keep doing this and gradually try to ween yourself off freezing it until you can taste it.

>Comparison
Buy two completely different whiskeys and compare them directly. (Something like a smoky scotch and a sweet bourbon) Then open both and take a sniff of both, comparing how they smell. Pour a shot of each, and take a sip of one, roll it around in your mouth, drink some water to cleanse your palate, take a sip of the other, roll it around in your mouth. Notice any differences?

>Just keep drinking
Just keep trying different whiskeys. Sometimes it's one whiskey in particular that opens it up for people. You could drink 20 different brands of whiskey and then have that one that you sip that ends up opening your palate up to it.

that said, the issue might not be what you're drinking but "how". start by getting a good nosing for the glass. get used to it. if all you're getting is alcohol burn, add some ice and let it mellow out. eventually uou'll graduate from it and appreciate it neat, but no rush.
