So Here Now Comes One of Best Way To Have A Whisky !
Appreciating Straight Whisky
Pour “two fingers” of whisky into a rocks or tulip glass. Rocks glasses, the classic whiskey cup, are short, round glasses made for 12-14oz or liquid. Tulip glasses are curved wide at the bottom and thinner up top, concentrating the smells near your nose, and are used for more high-class whiskey tastings. While any glass will do, these are the two typical glasses used to serve whisky.
- Two fingers means that you pour the whisky up to the height of two fingers held at the bottom of the glass.
Use the color of the whisky to gauge its age.
Whiskey gets its color from contact with the wooden cask it is aged in. In general, the darker the color, the older the whiskey. Purplish tints can mean the whiskey was aged in sherry or port barrels, giving it a slightly fruitier taste.
Lift the glass to your nose for a smell.
- Vanilla, caramel, and toffee are the classic “whiskey flavors,” and are a byproduct of the aging process in wooden casks.
- Floral and citrus flavors are becoming more and more common in whiskeys, especially blends.
- Maple flavors are common in many American whiskeys, particularly in Tennessee Whiskey like Jack Daniels.
- Smokiness is common in Scotch whiskey, particularly from the region of Islay. The smokiness comes from the peat fires used to dry the whiskey out.
Place a few drops of clean water into your whisky.
This drop of water not only dilutes the whisky slightly, making the flavor a bit more manageable to novice drinkers, it also opens up the flavors and makes them more noticeable. Whenever possible, use distilled or bottled water to preserve the flavor of the whisky
Taste the whiskey and compare it to its smell.
Take a sip of the whiskey and let it coat your tongue, lingering on your palate before swallowing. Don’t chug it or down it like a shot. A medium-sized sip, enjoyed slowly, is the best way to drink whiskey
Keep any added ice to a minimum.
Whiskey becomes a bit dull when it chills, so serious whiskey drinkers usually skip the ice or add no more than 1 cube. Ice not only chills the drink, it usually adds more water than you want as it melts, diluting the drink too much and making it watery.
ENJOY YOUR DRINK !
