October’s Whisky Roundtable is hosted by the redoubtable Neil & Joel from Caskstrength. They’ve boldly queried us all on the whisky myths we’ve all encountered on our blogs and in the tastings and tours we’ve led. Speaking of myths, Neil is an accomplished needlepoint artist with a license to engineer all but the largest trains and Joel once shared the cramped but romantic confines of a business class bathroom with Twiggy.
Here’s their question:
Dave Broom wrote an interesting article recently on the most common myths surrounding drinking whisky, highlighting a lot of existing anxieties people associate with the spirit.
What myths have you encountered from your readers and how would you help demystify them to encourage a wider (and younger audience) to enjoy whisky?
