So apparently there are some positive health benefits to drinking single malt scotch whiskey.
4. Whiskey can help prevent cancer.
5. Drinking whiskey can lower your risk of having a stroke.
6. It also may reduce your risk of developing heart disease.
Moderation is key here. I frequent Scottish festivals here in Southern California and have done some Scotch tasting at them. So I thought I would expand my knowledge of Scotch by slowly trying out different ones and see what I think. I am starting with something from Highland Park and GlenDronach.
I only fill the glass about 1/3 of the way if that. I am no where near the place to give a review of either but here is one for the Highland Park 15 and one for the GlenDronach 12. In case you are wondering there is a recommended way to properly drink your Scotch.
I did notice a difference when I added a little bit of water. Different flavors were more noticeable. Also, the longer you move it in your mouth the more I noticed the nuanced flavors until it gets overpowering at the end. So I am taking recommendations from those of you who know about the different kinds of Scotch out there. This is a working man’s blog so have a budget in mind when making a recommendation. Nothing over $100 I think is a good parameter. Please submit your recommendation in the comment section.
