I'm new! I'm allowed to sound dumb.... (right?)
Hi, I'm new to the forum and new to scotch whisky. I became interested and decided I'll give it a go and try to learn to properly enjoy scotch. I've heard from and read people's opinions on how to drink it -- they all gave a few similar options and said whatever I enjoy the most -- but it seemed it all came down to the flavors.
I went to the store and bought a bottle of scotch without any reasoning (probably the price more than anything if at all) -- the Glenlivet single malt 12 yr.
whisky.com had an elaborate review on this in terms of taste and flavor, but i can't seem to smell/taste any of it?! any advice on how i can better pick out the flavors?
