Although I've been sipping single malts for a few years, I still consider myself a novice. I like the Islays the best, Laphroiag being my current favorite.
I've noticed that I seem to enjoy a dram better when there's a nip in
the air. Not that it changes flavor over the year -- but when it's hot
and humid outside, I don't seem to reach as readily for a bottle at the
end of the day. On such days, a cold beer can seem the better choice.
My girlfriend feels the same way. I'm wondering if others have the
same tendency to enjoy a dram more in cool weather than in hot -- or is
it just us?
