How Do You Pick An Aged Scotch?
Scotches are aged in oak barrels where they are allowed to absorb the rich, woody smells of the barrel as well as other aromas like honey, flowers, fruits, or other olfactory characteristics depending on the type of Scotch and barrel. The longer this aging process is allowed to happen, the fuller and smoother the taste of the Scotch. With age and price as factors, new Scotch drinkers may ask themselves what age of Scotch they should purchase. For them, it is recommended to start on the lower side of the spectrum and pick a Scotch 10-15 years old before delving into a more aged Scotch. Consider avoiding peated Scotches at first, as this can be a very pronounced, acquired flavor that may be too strong for an unfamiliar palate. Following these recommendations will allow you to experiment with different brands of Scotch whisky before purchasing a more aged Scotch.
