I know what you’re thinking, you just celebrated National Tequila Day and you’re a little pickled from imbibing a bit too much, well, Dr. Boozin QC is here and I feel that the only remedy for your ailments is to partake in a dram of ultra amazing scotch with me!
In honor of this most appropriate holiday, I have picked my 3 favorite Scotch Whiskies to share with you, read on below to see why they’re my favorite.
New to the party, Monkey Shoulder is a triple malt – a blend of 3 Speyside Single Malt Whiskies and it’s really approachable, It’s sweeter with a bit of heat on the finish, lots of vanilla and zero peat. Perfect for those ready to venture into Scotch for the first time.
Finished in second fill rum barrels, The Balvenie 14 has a wonderful vanilla and toffee flavor that you would expect from the rum. The finish is smooth and light, for me this is a whisky meant to be enjoyed after dinner and with a dessert.
The oldest of the Single Malts mentioned here, you’ll find a slightly sweet and rich flavor. Matured in three different types of oak and then married together in a Solera Vat, this whisky delivers notes of pear, dried fruit and a hint of spice. I’m a fan!
