Whisky Live Singapore 2011 – Where my spiritual path was definitely 100 Proof


The Gaelic “usquebaugh”, meaning “Water of Life” is where the word “Whisky” comes from. The rest, you can google yourself because I’m not some lazy freelance twit of a writer who assumes that everyone else does not have an Internet connection and access to Wikipedia.

Anyway, this blog attended the event and one of the highlights was getting to taste a Whisky distillate from the Strathisla Distillery (“Strat-Ai-Lah”) by the Chivas Brothers. This is basically Whisky before it becomes Whisky, developing more complex flavors by sleeping in a cask for a minimum of 3 years (for Scotch Whiskys).

It was so green that other than a few floral notes, there was very little discernible aromas as your nose hairs curl up and die and your nose basically shuts down. The taste had slight herbaceous notes, fleeting because the liquor evaporated almost completely on my tongue.

More importantly, I didn’t go blind. So stay tuned for more about the Whisky Live Singapore event. 🙂
