New to Whiskey - Help me enjoy it!
From what I have read/heard about Scotch, Bourbon, Blended Whiskey, Single Malt, Irish Whiskey, etc. - it seems that I would enjoy Irish Whiskey the best (though I've never had it). I dislike the heavy woody taste in Johnny Walker Red and Jack Daniels Black is a little to sweet and vapid for me. Jim Beam bourbon is a sweet mess. Glenfiddich Scotch is almost unpalatable for me. Other than that, I haven't tried much. I know that there has got to be a way to enjoy this fine spirit. In the past, I despised tequila and now I love it!
I would like to see a detailed taste/aroma comparison about the many types of whiskey. Thanks!
