I have been giving whisky tastings out of my home for several years now, just once or twice per year. These are for friends who are interested in scotch whisky, members of organizations to which I belong, etc. Recently I educated several members of my graduating high school class (SO long ago) of the wonders of whisky.
On one hand, half of the group loved everything I had...especially the Islays.
On the other, this was the first time I had to bring out a "spit bucket"; some could not stand anything but the most tame Highlands.
It has been interesting, giving these tastings. If you have the means, I highly recommend it as a venue to share scotch whisky with the world...one dram at a time.
