Last night I enjoyed a small pour of Black Bottle and imitating an experiment that Ralfy Mitchell often does with Canadian or Irish whiskies, added some Albert Premium to the nearly empty Glencairn glass. Swished it around to get the left
over coating and then nosed. The smoke was much diminished but with added sweetness. A drop of water opened things up more and I found the taste to have a nice additional element. It was still Alberta Premium but the aldehyde note was a little diminished. Overall, it made for an enjoyable experiment. The
emply glass nose was terrific. I inhaled the caramel, honey notes for awhile...delicious for the nose.
I suggest trying the drop by drop addition of bolder whiskies to lighter ones for interesting "vattings" / blendings in this case.
