Now...I don't recommend you do this, because then you'll spend a lot of money and not actually lift your quality of life at all, but if you want to taste all of those flavours in whiskey you need to first drink cheap whiskey. Have some like every couple of days with no mixer and get used to how fowl it is. Then drink a few different super expensive whiskeys at room temp with no mixer and you'll go. "wow, this tastes sligtly less like shit....sort of like that HORRIBLE flavour is diluted with some honey or at least poured through some lavender leaves, or whatever)
"Bushmills Single Malt Whiskey 10 year old is triple distilled from 100% malted barley and matured for at least 10 years in bourbon season barrels which give it it’s honey, vanilla and milk chocolate aroma. It can be served neat, over ice or if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try it frozen."
Forget all that bs. It's a nice mild whisky that goes down easy. Won't cut the throat off you. The most I get is a sweet taste mixed with a mild oaky flavour.
Also drank a nice one over the Christmas called Quiet Man. That was pretty good too.
You can go for the more expensive option with Bushmills called Blackbush.
Really whisky is like any other drink that requires you to wrestle your taste buds into submission - like beer or coffee. I've learned to taste both, and at this point prefer drinking coffee black because I like to pick out the flavors with different blends without drowning it in cream and sugar (plus that's the part of coffee that's bad for you.)
Drinks like these have so many complex flavors that come all at once and if you're not used to it your tongue will automatically go "Uh this is bad! Or weird! Iunno I don't like it!" but the more you taste it the more "Mature" your taste gets and the easier you can pick these things out.
It's frustrating but if it's something you're interested in you have to put in the time to really be able to start tasting it. It's a lot like art and comics in that way :D
