New to the scotch scene!
As a summer hobby I've kind of gotten interested in the finer sides of spirits and mixology. I have always heard of people appreciating good scotch, so I decided to venture into that a little bit.
It turns out I have a lot of Dewar's scotch in the house from a wedding a while back, so started drinking a little bit of that (in a glass that narrows at the top, that seems to be what I've seen people doing in the past).
I very much enjoyed it and would like to learn more about scotch and the various kinds.
I did some preliminary research and found that there are two types of scotch: single malt and blended....single malt generally considered to be of a higher caliber.
I also found that before venturing into single malt, it is good to drink blended for a while to get used to it.
Is this advisable? And after I've been having blended for a while, what would be a good single malt to try? (definitely not looking to spend four figures or anything close.....)
Any other beginner tips?
Sorry if this has been posted before.
Thanks in advance!
