Gentle SMS


I have a friend (actually, my Nephrologist) who drinks Johnny Walker (not sure whether it's Black or Red). I'd like to get him a Single Malt that will give him a nice introduction to this wonderful world. I'm a peat freak, so I disqualify myself! I'll be seeing him Monday morning. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
Slainte.

If it's a gentle SMS you want, Dalwhinnie is hard to beat. Also HP12 or 18.

Gentle? Dalwhinnie, Royal Lochnagar or basically any Lowland malt. Auchentoshan, Glenkinchie or Rosebank if you can find it your side of the pond. I have an independant bottling of Rosebank bottled by Helen Arthur. Its an everymans friend. So easy going.
Peace,
Jock

I'd also add the Glen Moray with an age statement - can't remember if it's 10 or 12yo, but it's a lovely smooth, honeyed dram.
The non-age statement Glen Moray is just a wee bit rough around the edges.

Thanks, Jacues. Wine & Liquor Depot is open all weekend, so I have a few days to do some research.
Proost!

Anything with the word "Balvenie" on the label will be an excellent introduction. Maybe the Doublewood. $40 bottle, and if he doesn't like that, he won't like any of it.

Thanks, Dave. Your comment to Rajmund has added strength to Glengoyne 17yo.

Older Glen Grants, from the mid-forties through the seventies, were some of the best whiskies I have ever tasted. We still have a 30-yr. 1954 Glen Grant that is quite spectacular -- my wife's birth year bottle. Fortunately, she shares. 8;)
I once had a bottle of G&M CC 1947 Glenugie 33-yr. which was was also terrific.

Depending on how much you want to spend and what's available where you are: Tobermory 10yo; Balvenie Double Wood; The Glenlievet 12yo French Oak; The Macallan 12yo.

Not sure I'd agree with you on the Doublewood - although it's a good dram it's a bit 'heavy'.

But it is rather sweet which is good for beginners. Also, if he is a blend drinker, he will be in heaven with the Balvenie. If you want something a little more "masculine" (at the risk of being sexist). try the Glenfarclas Cask Strength ("105").

Heh. Yes, the 105 is a wee bit of a sherry monster. My problem with the Doublewood is that I find in a bit cloying. I'd go with the 10yo Founders instead.
