It’s true that as you get older your tastes change. I remember my first experience of whisky, which ended in a much younger me vowing to steer clear of its amber hues for life. That all changed around two years ago, when I started working for Hot Rum Cow magazine and working on one issue in particular meant that whisky was par for the course. And boy am I glad: I’ve been saved from a lifetime of missing out on Scotland’s national drink.
Being a newbie to the world of whisky means I have so much to discover and so when I was invited to an event at the Scotch Whisky Experience, I was never going to say no. The night centred around how to blend your own whisky. So, pipet at the ready, I let my nose and my taste buds decide how to mix four different drinks into one uniquely blended whisky. It was so much fun.
Not only did I take away my own blend, but during the night I learned so much about whisky. If you are a whisky fan, it is well worth looking into doing a Blend Your Own session at the Scotch Whisky Experience.
