Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I want to try whiskey. My palette is beginning to mature; I can handle spicy food, I can take coffee, beer I can drink like a funnel.
But I can't seem to manage hard alcohol. It tastes... of booze. Not the clear running streams, crisp breezes or the malty grains that whiskey adverts might have me believe. As far as I can discern, it just has the eye-watering burn of alcohol.
My gf drinks whiskey sometimes, and says I should get darker ones to start off with, as they are "sweeter" and so I could actually discern a flavour.
What should a whiskey newbie try? How should it be served? On the rocks? Straight up? With a twist? Cocktail umbrella?
