Cocktails with Whisky

famous whisky brandsWhisky is one of the greatest spirits. It comes on many different variations from around the world. The most famous type is the Scottish Whisky, of which there are two types – malts and blended. Both have a very smoky and earthy flavor. The woody taste comes from the oak cask it’s aged in. For it to be labeled Scotch the whisky must be distilled and aged in Scotland for a minimum of three years and it has to be in an oak cask. The malt whisky gets its name from the malted barley that has been soaked, allowed to germinate slightly, and then dried in a kiln. Irish whisky is often a bit smoother, while the american bourbon is made on corn for a sweeter taste. Whisky is one of the few spirits which can be enjoyed pure without any mixing. We have nevertheless found some interesting and different cocktail recipe for you, but please don’t mix a good whisky without tasting it first.
