  • Whether you are a drinking veteran or just entering into the world of booze, it's still confusing to know all about the types of whiskeys. Scotch, Rye, Bourbon! Overwhelmed with the wide range but confused from where to start? Let’s start from spelling. Whisky is Scottish, and Whiskey is from elsewhere.

    Whiskey starts from grains soaked in hot water called mash. Hot water extracts sugar from grains and later it is fermented for making alcohol.

    You can have your whiskey the way you like it: neat, with water, with ice, mixing with a cocktail or any other way. It’s all about you how you enjoy your drink.

    Whiskey comes in a variety of flavors. Taste it and enjoy your favorite flavor.

    Scotch whisky – Regions of Scotland produce varieties of flavors. Scotch whisky is made from malted barley or grain and is aged for 3 years in oak barrels. It tastes smoky, earthy and slightly fruity with fruit flavors. Scotch comes in five categories: single malt, single grain then comes with a blend that is blended malt and blended grain and the last is blended Scotch whisky.

     

    Irish whiskey – It is triple distilled in copper pot and is light, fruity and less peaty than scotch. Irish made their whiskey from yeast-fermented grain mash or mash of malted cereals and is aged for three years in wooden cask.

    American whiskey – Whiskey from America is sweeter, and is less peaty and smoky than Scottish and Irish. They contain maximum 80% alcohol and are made with more than 50% of one type of grain like 51 % corn in bourbon, 51% rye in rye whiskey, 51% wheat in wheat whiskey 0r 80% corn mash in corn whiskey.

    Japanese whiskey – Whiskey from Japan is smooth, delicate, and honey is added to add sweetness to whiskey. They use double malted or peated barley and are aged in a wooden cask

    Indian whiskey – India produces its whiskey from fermented molasses. Their whiskey is commonly known as Rum in the rest of the world.

    These are some of the popular whiskeys though whiskey is produced worldwide. It’s up to your taste that you like and how do you have it.

    Cowboys are long gone, and this era is all about gentility and appreciation.

    You must have seen whiskey tasters taking their sweet time, sniffing and swirling the pour and inhaling the aromas and finally, sampling a little bit at a time to savor all complex flavors.

    Majority of the whiskey tasters who review whiskey after pouring it into the glass wait for good 15 minutes before drinking.

    Some believe playing with the whiskey while letting it breathe, is the best way to experience a one of a kind taste.

    Whirl it in the glass, a gentle spin, not like a cyclone but more like Pique. You will be amazed at the change in taste.

    Speymalt Macallan turns into a whole another drink when given time to breathe; you can try it yourself.

     

    Addition of water

    Once you have experienced the real stuff, it is time now to unfurl the bona fide tastes of your whiskey.

    You don’t want to spoil the flavor entirely by adding more water than the whiskey itself, but it is for the best if you add a few drops.
