My friend has 4 bottles of single malt scotch (Glenmorangie, Glengoyne, Lagavulin, and Dalmore), and wants to host a scotch tasting for a few buddies...

Any tips on food pairings, or interesting "tricks" we can use for the tasting?

Thanks!

      I'd come.

      Food wise, meat, with fat in it. I've found a big steak can make me nearly invinceable, drinking wise. Try some Lorne sausage, maybe, http://www.cameronsbritishfoods.com/x...

      I would begin with similar glasses, and I would number the glasses. Make it a blind tasting. Two guys can pour. Maybe one guy pours for everyone but himself, and someone else pours for him. Or divide it up in groups.

      Make everyone rate them and write comments, without knowing what's what.

        Cook up a nice Haggis that's large enough for the group.
