Question About Single Malts
At this very moment, I am going through some sort of love/hate relationship with whisky. I like drinking in general, like drinking beer, wine, and some spirits such as rum and vodka (these two usually combined).
For some months now I've been drinking blended whisky with coke and I really like it, I actually stopped drinking rum and vodka in favour of it. This has made me try it alone, but when I do so, there's something I don't really like. I've researched on how to drink it, I add a bit of water and smell the whisky, then take some sips. Thing is there is something ruining the moment for me when I swallow, and I can't really appreciate what it is. I totally love the taste that remains after swallowing and I also like the smell, it is something to do in the middle.
I've been drinking Johnny Walker's Black Label, Chivas Regal 12 yo and J&B lately. J&B I just can't stand alone, simply smelling it I can tell I won't like it. The other two are way better but I still get this problem.
So what I wanted to ask is, are single malts easier to drink? These blended whiskys might have some whiskys I just don't like, ruining the experience. Maybe trying out some of the not peaty, not smoky single malts could be the best way to start.
Checked the other day and I can get my hands for sure on a 12 yo Glenfiddich, 10 yo Glenmorangie and 12 yo Cardhu (living in Canary Islands so there's not such a variety of malts, will continue searching for other malts). If trying a single malt is the answer, would one of those be suitable for me?
Thanks in advance
