When tasting a whiskey for the first time you want to observe and analyze the different aspects of it before actually drinking it.

There are several steps to use:
1) Start with the appearance by holding the glass against a sheet of white paper to judge visually how rich or light the color may be.
2) Swirl the whiskey around and then watch to see how it coats the glass.
3) Nose the whiskey with your mouth open slightly so that the alcohol doesn't dull your sense of smell and try to pick out different aromas.
4) Take a sip and run it around your mouth so it comes into contact with all your taste buds and see what flavors you experience.
5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 to see if anything has changed now that the whiskey has been in contact with the air for awhile.

If you and the people you are tasting with don't pick up the same aromas and flavors that is perfectly okay because there are no right or wrong answers but rather the individual tastes and aromas that each of us is familiar with. If you like, after performing this exercise try it again but with a couple of drops of neutral water in the whisky to see if you notice any changes.

Our whisky this week is the Glenfiddich 15 Year Old which I tasted the other day for the first time in a year and was reminded what a really great everyday scotch this is. It drinks so much better then the price you'll pay for it. This whisky is aged for 15 years in an oak barrel and then transferred into a solera vatting system in which it moves through casks that are always kept at least 1/2 full to maximize the flavors. The nose has notes of fresh oranges and apples that progress to dried fruits such as raisins and apricots. As you continue to nose it you will pick up cinnamon and burnt sugars. On the palate you'll get vanilla from the oak barrel and a great honey taste followed by cinnamon and spice. It has a nice long finish that moves from fruit to spice on the end. I think you'll agree this is a great "go-to" whiskey that should be in your liquor cabinet and on your call list when at your favorite watering hole.
