What is The Best Way To Drink Whisky?

There’s no right or wrong way to drink whisky. Just enjoy it, that’s all that matters.

However, we can recommend some techniques that can help aid the experience of drinking whisky.

Try different variations of glasses and different temperatures. Add a little water, or try a cocktail or add a mixer. But remember, the only right way, is the way that you prefer. 



 

CHOOSE YOUR GLASS

Try using a solid tumbler (a short glass with a heavy bottom) if you’re drinking your whisky neat or with ice. For ‘long’ whisky drinks, use a try serving your drink in a ‘highball’ – a tall, slim, straight-sided glass.



TAKE A MOMENT TO INHALE 

The smell of a whisky is a huge part of the flavour profile. Be sure to enjoy the aroma of whisky to truly appreciate the drink in front of you. 



TAKE A SIP

Savour the flavour by allowing the whisky to roll over your tongue, before letting it slip smoothly down.



TAKE YOUR TIME

A good whisky presents a whole host of flavours and scents. Each person will experience these differently, with certain elements being stronger to some than others. Take your time to really get to know the whisky, and what elements you like.
