There is no right or wrong way to drink
Scotch whisky - it's all down to personal taste. We prefer our Scotch
neat, and our rankings are based on this.
However, here are a few suggestions:
Many who take their Scotch neat say they don't want to spoil the taste by adding
water. Conversely, an
number say that adding a touch of pure, soft spring water serves to enhance the particular
aroma and flavor of a whisky. Ordinary tap water may contain high amounts of
chlorine and therefore would not complement any whisky. Your best bet is to opt
for bottled Scottish mineral water, ideally the same spring water used in the
making of the particular whisky!
Adding ice to a whisky is a shame because it dulls the fine taste and wonderful
aromas. Similarly, carbonated water is not an ideal accompaniment for whisky as
it may interfere with the aromas also.
Adding mixers like ginger ale, soda, and cola is a
popular trend. However, it begs the question- why
drinking good Scotch if you intend to mask the taste?
Americans generally have trouble with the correct pronunciation of some Scottish
names, so we've found a
features Pip Hill, founder and chairman of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society,
pronouncing all of those mysterious names.
Imagine our horror when we found that we had been ordering "Glen-fid-ditch",
while the correct pronunciation is actually closer to "Glen-fid-dich", with a
very soft "ch"! We haven't worked up the nerve to order Bruichladdich
Here are a few of
the Scotch Whisky's we have tried and our very humble opinion on each.
