BEIRUT: For Lebanese drinkers, Scotch is a familiar taste: warm, soothing and a bit smoky. But there's a world of intensity and flavors to be found by going beyond the blended Scotch whiskies, with a surprising range of complexity to be found in single malt Scotch. The term itself is sometimes misunderstood; single means from just one distillery, malt refers to the malted barley, and Scotch, that's pretty clear.Singleton makes a good introduction into single malts from blended whiskies, according to Sharbel Abou Tayeh, a reserve brand ambassador for Diageo, which owns the No. 1 Scotch Johnnie Walker along with a number of other Scotch distilleries.Abou Tayeh gave a whisky mentorship Tuesday evening for a small group of Scotch enthusiasts, introducing them to a selection of single malts, along with insights on how to truly appreciate the subtleties of the different distilleries.A Speyside Scotch, Singleton of Duffton is balanced and complex.
