I love my single malt whisky, not to get drunk. I love it for the taste ,the warmth and it has got an relaxing effect on me. The single malts from the island of Islay are my favourite ones. Specially the Lagavullin 17y. Not to everybodies taste because they are peated quite a lot. This is one of my guilty pleasures a glass or two in the evening when everybody has gone to sleep, with some music or a good book. The world can come to an end on that moment, I will not care.
Here served in a classic whisky glass, lovely to drink from. The ship on the glass is the Thalassa, I went on that ship together with my photobuddy Patrick for a week on a whiskytrip.
Good advice for who wants to start with drinking single malt. Just put a drop of water and I mean a drop, in the whisky, it will open all the aromas of this divine spirit.
I had good fun taking these, the bonus is. I could drink the whisky afterwards. There is a big discussion how to wright whisky, with an e " whiskey" or without, somebody yold me ones, the e stands for excellence.
