Ask Men have teamed up with Johnnie Walker for this article on Scotch whisky tips. The 8th tip is confusing, as Scotch only comes from one country – Scotland.
Here is their top 10 list.
10 – Scotch whisky is not just for old men.
9 – You can drink it in a cocktail.
8 – Scotch whisky flavours differ from country to country.
7 – The difference between single malts and blends.
6 – Choosing scotch whisky takes care.
5 – You need a good setup.
4 – You should fire up your senses beforehand.
3 – Drinking whisky is a three step process.
2 – There’s no “correct” way to drink it.
1 – The Rob Roy is the classic, iconic Scotch whisky cocktail.
The Rob Roy is a twist on the Manhattan (made with bourbon or rye whisky rather than Scotch). Johnnie Walker’s brand ambassador describes his classic version:
– 45ml JW Black Label
– 15ml Sweet Vermouth
– Dash orange bitters
– Stir and strain
– Garnish with a cherry or an orange zest
Johnnie Walker also have tasting videos on YouTube. Like this one for JW Black.
