Getting your bottle of Scotch Whisky can be a daunting task especially when you do not so much about this complex drink. Here are some tips to help you appreciate the Scotch Whisky:

Get to know Whisky

  • You can spell it as whiskey or whisky. The first one is used by the American and Irish distilleries while the second is used by the Scottish, Japanese, and Canadian distilleries.
  • There are several types of Scotch whisky like blended, single grain, or single malt
  • Malt whiskies use malt barley while grain types combine malt and grains
  • Blended scotch whiskies consist of a combo of single grain whiskies or single malt whiskies

Regions

  • The varieties of Scotch can be Campbelltown, Lowland, Highland, or Islay
  • The region does not refer to the maturation or malting but just the location where the distilleries are
  • Blends are often representative of a good taste of the different regions of Scotland

Age

  • The minimum aging process for scotch is 3 years and is made of malted barley, water, and yeast
  • The flavors will depend on the length of aging and the wood used to keep the whisky
  • The typical casks use are wine casks, bourbon, and sherry with the blends running for 5 to 9 years for aging
  • Brands like Johnnie Walker, Dewar’s, and Chivas Regal subject their blended whiskies post blending process
  • The age of the drink will be indicated on the label but blends will not indicate the individual whiskies used
