My first time here.

I'm going to arrange a whiskey blind test för some friends. We are all beginners and I need your help with selecting three singel malts that represents three different tastes. And they can't be too expensive. Have in mind that we are inexperienced whisky drinkers, so we don't need anything out of the ordinary.

Hi, and welcome.

I would suggest the following:

Glenmorangie 10 YO, a very good Highland Malt for the beginner, and at a fair price,
Highland Park 12 YO, Very high quality from the northern Islands, good quality for your money,
Ardbeg TEN, this has in a few year turned into a "classic" Islay malt, still priced reasonably.

I believe that these 3 would give you a good start.

Oh - please taste them in the order they are mentioned...

Have fun
