So I know this is The Wine Society but TWS does have some whiskies on its books but with maybe half a dozen single malts and a few blends I almost feel like saying to them “why bother?” It hardly seems worth it with such a small choice - I have more on my shelf in the kitchen.
I first got into whisky on the basis that since people seem to talk about the different flavours of each single malt almost as much as wine lovers talk about the different flavours of wines, there must be something to it and so I set about tasting many different single malts and now have about 20 in the house (as I drink so little, it’s a good job an opened bottle can survive so well).
So I buy most of my whiskies online but not from TWS as their choice is too small to be worth viewing. Anybody have any thoughts on this? Is it maybe silly of me to expect a wine society to do any more than dabble half a dozen toes in the Scottish peaty burns?
