Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival May 2018







How do whisky or whiskey drinkers drink theirs?


1.    Pour "two fingers" of whisky into a glass ...
2.    Use the colour of the whisky to gauge its age. ...
3.    Lift the glass to your nose for a smell. ...
4.    Place a few drops of clean water into your whisky. ...
5.    Taste the whisky and compare it to its smell. ...
6.    Keep any added ice to a minimum.






"Step one, swill glass Step two, big sniff Step three, take a big, long sip: heaven"


"To drink scotch, you don't bring air in to your mouth like you do with wine. You take a sip, hold it in your mouth for a couple of seconds (some people chew on it a little) then swallow. That's when the flavour hits. Adding a couple of drops of water takes the edge off the alcohol, and makes the drink much smoother."
