Attention Scotch Lovers

When I first tried coffee, I hated it.  When I first tried beer, I hated it.  When I first tried scotch I hated it.  What I’ve leared over the years is that taste buds evolve and become refined over time.  Now I can’t drink enough coffee in the morning and enough beer at night to quench my limitless thirst for these fine beverages.  Scotch, however is something I admit I’m still trying to conquer, but thanks to Master of Malt (http://www.masterofmalt.com/) I’ve gotten my first glimpse of this new and exciting more sophisticated world of getting drunk.

Recently we were contacted by Master of Malt who offered to send us a scotch sampler pack for us to review.  Of course we welcome all free booze being sent our way and were promptly shipped 3 high end scotches.   Each type of scotch came in a cool sampling jar (picture shown) and contain premium scotches that might normally be out of your price range.  Especially as a newcomer to the scotch world, its painful to shell out £100 – £200 on a bottle of scotch without at least a little taste test first.   Apparently these little sampling jars are referred to as Drams and you can pick your poison on their website here: http://www.masterofmalt.com/drinks-by-the-dram/.  Prices start at £1.95 and up depending on how old and premium the scotch is.  Really there is no limit to their stock of quality scotches.

Here are the samplers that we received:

Master of Malt Bowmore 26 Year Old

Ichiro’s Malt 1991 Five of Clubs

Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist 16 Year Old 1990

Now when the scotch arrived the dudes at Joe Bartneder were pretty excited.  Our plan was to have a sofisticated sampling session, offering our astute reviews of each of the 3 Drams provided by Master of Malt while smoking cigars and discussing world issues.  What ended up happening is we drank the Drams during a party and got too drunk to remember what we liked and what each Scotch tasted like (they were good though!).  It seems the dudes at Joe Bartender still have some growing up to do.  In either case I can still highly recommend Master of Malt as the perfect way to get your hands on some super high quality scotches at a very affordable price.  You won’t be disapointed.

Also with Christmas coming up there are some great ideas on their Whiskey Gift Page.  Take a look through these great Whiskey Gift Ideas.

    Yeah, I agree about the coffee and beer and Wiskey… And I just started liking coffee like 3 months ago, so it will be a while before I enjoy wiskey. I do enjoy the burning, but it is just not an alcohol that I will reach for at this time in my life.

  2. Kerry Says:

    I second your opinion as I was also a novice coffee drinker and beer drinker, now I’m 62 and hated scoth for years, now every night a get my snifterout and have a few sips, you do acquire a taste for it-and it help you sleep, though I’ve never heard of master of malt I will surely visit the site and see how it goes.

  3. Sarah Harris Says:

    It’s hard to remember a time that I hated beer and whiskey, but I know I did when I first tried them. I would only drink mixed drinks that were very sugary to cover the taste! Now I love a good whiskey and love beer. I’ve never liked coffee to be honest. Love your story in the end. Sounds like a good time was had though!

  4. mcm Says:

    I’m not a very big drinker but I had a pomogranted martini last week and I really enjoyed it.

    I agree – you need to get used to the taste before you really like it. But, I was a bit more fortunate than you – I liked beer the first time I tried it :) I envy your for your free scotch experience and I will definitely consider buying some for the party next weekend. Looking forward to your new posts! Have fun!

    I agree about the coffee and beer

    A 40 year old scotch sounds makes me wander! :)

  10. DivX full length movies Says:

    First of all, I don’t drink at all. I especially hate beer. Last week my father insisted to taste a 30 year old scotch. I liked it a lot, I was surprised myself. £100 is not that much for a good scotch.

  11. gshanma Says:

    After reading this post, I am tempted to taste the scotch, though i do not use hot drinks. As Christmas is round the corner the product seems to be fairly priced.

  12. climb Kili Says:

    I don’t care that much about hard drinks but from time to time to take the edge off, I do taste a small glass of scotch.

  13. BarsAndBartending.com Says:

    Scotch samplers – What a novel idea! I’ve never developed a taste for scotch but I’m still willing to try…

    I like scotch these days, but when I first started raiding my parent’s liquor cabinet I couldn’t stomach it.

  18. uhf aerial Says:

    A good scotch is a more appreciated by a more delicate palate. I think I would definitely love to try a tiny taste of this one.

  19. Barstole Says:

    That is awesome..test it before U buy it. I’m a single malt guy and have I don’t know how many times before bought a bottle, just because of what the sales person told me, and it didn’t taste as explained (not 4 me anyway). I will buy the taste drams – be4 the full bottle in the future.

    Delicious, Great work.

  37. hide acne scar Says:

    I don’t like to drink coffee and beer as well when I first tried those things. But now I learned how to drink them and I enjoy it especially when it comes to drinking coffee.

  38. Wideband Says:

    Scotch is definitely an acquired taste I hated it for years until I finally started trying the top shelf brands, now I love it!!

  39. Las Vegas Golf Says:

    That’s a great news for the scotch lovers. They can now test a sample of these drinks at a very cheap price and if they are satisfied they can order for more. So its a good offer to taste those drinks available in drums.

  40. Impact Design Says:

    Scotch is a popular drink in the liquor world. It is pretty mild and can be shared with people of all age. But some may not like the taste of a particular brand. So these drums are the best option to test this particular brand. If found suitable, then the bigger option is there.

    I’m a scotch lover.. :)
