Whisky 101: How to do a Tasting

I know several of us are fans of various adult malts and beverages, so I thought I would share this video from Highland Park Whisky on the proper way to do a whisky tasting. If nothing else, it's a great excuse to actually go taste whatever spirit you have in the cupboard, and to listen to the Scottish brogue.

Admittedly, I've not tasted the Highland Park, so Hodge or one of our other resident experts will have to give a more informed opinion. Also, if you're not sure how to pronounce your favorite Scotch (The Macallan 18 Year is my preferred weapon of choice), Brian Cox will teach you to pronounce all of the essential Scotches.
