Choosing a few whiskeys for a taste test will help you distinguish between some of the flavours and see where your preferences lie. Take a sniff, then a sip, and allow the whiskey to sit on your tongue for a little while before swallowing. This way you can try to distinguish some of the flavours. As well as Royal Salute Whiskey, there is Laphroaig
, which is cheaper but still a great-tasting whiskey. It is often described as surprisingly sweet with a smokiness to it. The strong aromas will entice you to take another sip and indulge in your new refined tastes.
