Interested in to know which are the smoothest single malt Scotch for beginners? Right! Insider Monkey will give you a tasty compilation right now! When considering which the first bottle of scotch you’d chose, have in mind when thinking about what scotch to buy, a good scotch can be a rather expensive one. And choosing only single malt narrows our choices even more. Personally I hardly ever drink shorts as I don’t like them. But i do think it’s worth tasting them at least once.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the smoothest single malt Scotch for beginners from their list.
The first one is Aberlour 12. Aberlour distillery was wounded in 1879 in a Speyside whisky region of Scotland, although the first distillery of Aberlour was built in 1825 (but closed soon after). At the time it was built, it was one of the most modern distilleries, but it suffered the same destiny as many Victorian distilleries at the time, it was destroyed very soon after in 1898. What makes Aberlour’s taste a distinctive one is maturing in different casks. Aberlour is double matured in Spanish Oloroso Sherry and American Oak barrels leaving a light fruitytaste. The second Scotch for beginners is Glenmorangie 10. Glenmorangie distillery was founded in mid-19th century, and has gotten its name from the place it was built on, derived from Gaelic meaning something like “the glen of tranquility” (Glean Mòr na Sìth) translated by the company itself and used as a recognizable phrase, though there were some complaints from those apparently better fluent in Gaelic. Namely, they stated that the real translation would be closer to “valley of big meadows”. But whatever the linguistic confusion we’ve got here, the more important thing now is the whisky itself. With a citrus and vanilla aroma and a fresh orange and peach aftertaste, it is one of the smoothest single malt scotch for beginners. According to the producers themselves, while maturing in bourbon casks Glenmorangie gets the perfect balance between sweetness and complexity.
