For comparisons, it would be best to have small samples of the whiskies side by side with water and maybe water crackers.

With eating food and sampling something else, you might not get what you want. It will change your perception of the second whisky which isn't necessarily bad, but could be interesting

I am alternating between the smoky one and non smoky one on alternate days ( I am trying to give gap of one day in between) .. Last week I drank every day and didn't feel good after that :-)

and we keep buying Collingwood - pretty simple, good, and at just over $30, totally affordable - http://www.lcbo.com/lcbo/product/collin ... VPRmtPyvVo
Bought a bottle of Collingwood and tried it, ugh.. Tastes so synthetic, a combination of medicinal and too much added sugar.

I'll finish the bottle but it'll be my only one and last one.
I've got a pretty good friend who's seen me at my worst.
He don't care if I'm a blessing or a curse,
But he always shows up when the chips are down.
That's the kind of friend I like to be around.

More like "The Kelly's Fortified Wine of blended whiskies!" :|

Ya wasn't a big fan of the normal offering, but the 21 Year old is quite nice. It has been sold out for sometime and doubt it will be coming back. Wish I had bought an extra few bottles to store, as it was very reasonable. (Under $60 a bottle if I remember correctly.)

Absolutely. If you couldn't then there would be no point to whisky tastings. Just start with a more mild flavour as anything heavy or with significant peat may affect the taste of some to follow.

Also, you should have something to eat prior to and during to help keep the palate clean. Water can help, but less so with clearing the palate and more so for adding a few drops to the whisky you're tasting (because that's how you taste whisky).

Teachers is good. Actually better than whyte and mackay. But still can't match islay mist.
Islay mist seems to be best bang for the buck. They only make 750 ml bottles though

Hibiki Harmony is back in stock this week at SAQ after a considerable absence. I bought one bottle since I missed the boat on their last shipment but haven't opened it yet.

The selection of Japanese whisky is limited with SAQ but, from what I've heard with discussions with people who went to Japan and drank of lots of their whiskies, sakes, umeshus and the likes, Hibiki Harmony is actually better than the Yamazaki 12, which you cannot find anywhere anymore
