Well, after finishing off the last of my latest bottle of Absinthe I decided to try a wee dram of mt newest bottle of single malt. It isn`t the Mac. or the GlenMorangie, but Glenlivet "Nadurra". 16 yr. old cask strength. After 3 sips I can say HOLY CRIKEY! This is a bit stronger than I expected. I can also say it has a decidedly sweet taste that is not at all unpleasant. I was impressed by the price as well...$55 for a 16 yr old single malt that tastes ok is worth it. I say give it a try.

Wow THATS stepping off the deep end! Not heard of too many brave folk who venture out to the Nadurra that much. Probably more because it is a slightly heftier taste. Nice thoughts there

Is it wrong that I think Macallan by itself is a bit much (maybe I need to drink more of it at a time-haha), but Macallan and Coke is REALLY good? Big Grin

Not at all. Its all in how it tastes best for you. I drink single malt neat, but I've been told repeatedly I should drink it with ice, this just makes it taste watered down to me. The only thing I will add while drinking it is dark chocolate( I eat while drinking)...it enhances the flavor to me. Cool

Its not wrong at all GW. ITs your palatte thats your guide. Some folks will add a dab of distilled water. Some add some other mixer - but its your personal preference. I prefer neat, like sg. I dont like anything even near it. No ice no water nothing, but thats my palatte. You might find it has a more unique flavor with a mix of something, or on ice. I have also been told that it really belongs over ice, but being more of a purist I choose not to. Ive tried it that way and it totally changes the flavors and aromas. Another suggestion is if you like it neat use a sniffing glass to bring out the aromas in the blend. I believe drinking a single malt is as much about aroma as it is flavors.

What matters is that you enjoy the drink!

Lately I am enchanted with The Balvenie Doublewood and The Balvenie Caribbean Cask. Delightful!
