Whisky from Where?


To a friends for lunch yesterday and with coffee he challenged me to a blind tasting. I hate these. It's very easy to embarrass oneself in a tasting and I did.

I tried this whisky, Slyers, and thought I'd nailed it as a mild Speyside. Actually, it's German, from Bavaria and its not at all bad given its youth.

Another ten years and it'll be getting there and another hundred and the Germans will probably be getting the hang of it.  I used to be a bit sniffy about foreign whiskies but actually, the more the merrier. They all add something to the richness of experience.
