He runs a bar with over 300 Whiskies and he loves them all: “I don't have a favorite. I have many!
Variety is the spice of life, and there are different Whiskies for different occasions. There are times when you’re looking for a nice sweet and baking spice warmth of a good Bourbon, other times the slap in the face of a good Rye, or the smoky peaty goodness of an Islay Single Malt. Either way, there’s a Whisky for every occasion.”
Listening to thisman talking about Whisky is poetry – let it inspire you!
The light honey notes and baking spices that come off the nose just warm the soul, and the white pepper as it goes down and tickles the throat is truly a pleasant sensation.
It’s a classic American Bourbon, and it never breaks the bank. Chase this down with a great German Pilsner and you will forget all your woes.
I know what I said earlier contradicts this, but this is a top 5 of all time Whisky.
It has the classic sandal wood notes one would come to expect from Yamazaki, accompanied by a peaty back bone, without being too in your face. This helps mellow the back and ease the eyes after they are worn out from the hours of staring at a computer screen.
Finish it off with some Bowmore 15 Darkest. A rich, peaty beast of a dram. It starts with a touch of brine up front a slight roasted campfire finish. And a mellow caramelized marshmallow to satisfy the needs for a dessert.
