Dad and Pete are quite the concessioners of whisk(e)y, well… they enjoy drinking it over ice cracked with a splash of water and both seem to enjoy the same brands. Seems they both get gifted a few bottles too and managed to collect a few good bottles of Johnnie Walker. I find they often taste very similar and can’t warrant the cost of some of the bottles but my knowledge is limited when it comes to scotch, and quite frankly enjoy a bourbon more than most whisky’s.
Anyhoo, the boys decided to see which blend they enjoyed “blind”, so the scene was set for a blind tasting – not necessarily to see if they knew which was which, more just to see which one they enjoyed the most.
The contenders were Red Label, Black Label, Double Black, Platinum and Executive Club Collection.
I thought it would be fun to see if they could also guess which one was which so an exam paper was created.
Turns out both dad and Pete have expensive taste.
It was great fun and both dad and Pete did very well on guessing which whisky was which.
