Recently I have been working on a bottle of Aberlour 10yo, which I find to be neither good nor bad. One day I was considering my wee dram a bit more in detail, and decided that one of my chief complaints with it was the absence of a noteworthy finish. For some reason, I decided that I wanted to put this thought to the test, so out came the bottle of Cask Strength Lagavulin 12yo.
I added a drop or two of the Lagavulin to my glass and swirled it gently to mix. The results weren't bad - the nose softened slightly, and the initial taste was almost the same, but the finish now had a faint but warm smoky echo. It seemed like a definite improvement to me.
I confess to having repeated the experiment once or twice since then.
Has anyone else dared to micro-blend (ie a single glass) single malts?
