Just wondering if any of you peat lovers smoke cigarettes? Each to their own palette of course but its such a strong flavour I'm interested to see if there might be any link/correlation


Nope. I loathe smoking in all its forms.

Used to very moderately, but not for many years. Haven't smoked a mild cigar for ages either, though I do enjoy them. I suppose it is a similar sort of indulgence, yes.

That one's finished in Bourbon casks, isn't it? Tried it myself but found the taste of Bourbon a bit overpowering. Very drinkable but not really British-tasting enough for my liking.

I'm a smoky peaty whisky fan and I used to smoke.  But I haven't smoked in 22 years now, and I never will again.

I'm wondering in an absent minded kinda way why it is that people experience tastes in different ways when the source itself is standard, uniform and unvaried. Is it purely a chemically different environment from mouth to mouth that influences how variable individual palettes are, or perhaps something like differing levels of acidity/alkaline in the mouth from person to person? Maybe some people actually have more taste buds or more of a certain type than others?

The  "57 degrees North" is wonderful - smoky and with definite peat, but sweeter than an Islay.

Cheers Pete! I'll look forward to that. Currently renewing my friendship with Glenlivet.
