So as the topic says, I've been getting the nose for long by actually using gentle and long inhale with my mouth. Doing it like that I feel like I actually taste the smell. Also, for some reason I feel the nose I get with mouth is more sensitive, I get way more out of it than with the nose. Sure, nose gives me smell but it's nowhere near as strong as with "mouth smelling". IMO this works exceptionally well with smoky Islay whisky. Almost feels like I were having a cigar.
Anybody else an addict of this mouth inhale technique?
Welcome to the forum soulblast, what type of whisky glass are you using to taste your whisky.
Thx. Glencairn tulip. I can't drink with wide straight edge glass anymore, the nose I get out of it is so much weaker. Just BTW, I've sometimes checked and it has taken 20+mins quite often before I even start drinking. TBH the mouth smelling for me is as important as the taste. Once, during an awesome sunset I had a drink lasting 45mins!
Personally I get more from taking the aromas in through the nose, I can see what you mean with the mouth inhaling though but it is not as intense for me. That's whisky for you, best drunk the way you enjoy it. Cheers

I agree with Samson on this , and you may benefit with the nose more by using a different glass than a standard Glencairn
Try a Tulip glass or a Copita, I like the Copita with a small stem and wider body to the bottom of the glass. _________________ Pour me a glass please.
