Nosing Whisky

Nosing or Tasting Scotch whisky is an art form that anyone with a good sense of taste & smell can master.

To begin with, take a good long sniff of the back of your hand to clear the pathway of your olfactory sensors.  Then pour a wee drop of Amber Glen into your snifter or nosing glass. (Do Not Swill the whisky around the glass)

Step 1.

Hold the glass by the bottom of the stem and hold it in front of you slightly above your head at a 45º angle and gently spin the glass. Note the viscosity of the oily tears that run gently down the back of the glass.

Step 2.

SNIFF: Keep the glass perfectly flat and sniff 3 times at intervals of 3 to 5 seconds between each sniff.

Note the following:

  • 1st Sniff “The Nozzle” – a slight tingling sensation
  • 2nd Sniff “The Aroma” – Floral – Sweet – Smokey – Earthy – Woody
  • 3rd Sniff ” Flavour” – Vanilla – Butterscotch – Citrus fruit – Dried fruit – Raisins – Berries- Chocolate

The above are just some of smells and tastes that Amber Glen Scotch whisky embodies, your nose and palate may discover some others.

Step 3.
SIP: Take a small sip, then Chew and Bite the whisky 3 times on each side and roof of your mouth, so that your whole palate salivates and gathers over the centre of your tongue, then slowly swallow down the whisky.

Note: Think about the aromas & flavours and the tingling warming sensation as you swallow down the whisky.

Amber Glen embodies the flavours and aromas of a time gone by in a celebration of perfection for you to enjoy
