RE: Had my first "Measure of the Macallan" last night
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.

I'm taking a ride with my best friend...I hope he never lets me down again.

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

RE: Had my first "Measure of the Macallan" last night
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!
