Whiskey Tasting at the Ranch
At The West Lake Grill, we are no strangers to a great tasting Whiskey. After all what would a Ranch be without it? We pride ourselves in loving and understanding the smells & tastes of every flavour. The scent is the sensation and aromas that you pick up from the whisky before tasting it. Important characteristics can be found and should give an indication as to what the whisky will taste like. Swirl it around and allow oxygen to start the evaporation process. It’s important to savour it in your mouth to get the maximum flavour and benefit. Different parts of your tongue and mouth respond to different flavours, so pass the whisky over all areas of your mouth. Now that’s the taste of Whiskey on the Ranch!
