The Art of Slow Whiskey Drinking

Like several other art forms, drinking whiskey is too an art. There are two types of drinkers in this world, one, who fills up the glass and gulp it like a cowboy and two, who takes their time with the drinks.

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.

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.

When you add amount as little as this in the whiskey, it breaks down the alcohol as little as needed.
