Giving Scotch a shot *

"Scotch whisky has been created by our master blender
in the style pioneered by John and Alexander Walker
to evoke the authentic, powerful character and flavour
of a traditional 19th Century blend."

Sharing a drink with dad is always pleasant
especially when it marks the first time I have tried Scotch.
Unlike wines & spirits I am accustomed to,
it was overpowering on the palette and a truly sensual experience.

Distilled and bottled in Scotland, whisky is originally made from malt barley. 
All Scotch whisky must be aged in oak barrels for at least 3 years,
to create powerful aromas balanced with hints of sweetness and depth.
To ensure the palate is refreshed, 
take a sip of iced water or serve on the rocks in a tumbler.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label
(complex, incredibly smooth and retains JW's signature smokiness.
long finish of smoke, pepper & spice)
