Here's a challenge for all of you. I've been trying to get a non-whiskey drinking friend of mine to... well, drink whiskey. He insists he doesn't like anything besides beer, wine, and sweet cocktails, but I'm sure if I can find the right whiskey I can get him hooked.
Being a bourbon fan, I first tried to get him into that. I got him to try Maker's Mark, since it's the lightest flavored bourbon that I have. Unfortunately, he didn't like it. Based on that, I'm wondering if bourbon might be too strong to start him on, and that maybe a lighter flavored Scotch might work. Unfortunately, I know very little about Scotch. Any thoughts on a bottling that might be good to get a newbie started on (keeping in mind he didn't like Maker's)? Any thoughts would be appreciated!
