How do you drink whiskey?
You will of course learn everything about drinking whiskey on this special cruise in the Amsterdam canals, but a little preparation can not hurt. So if you want to amaze everyone with your Whiskey skills, then read on.
Pour your whiskey
Take a small glass like a lowball glass. Grab a tulip glass to get the most out of the taste and smell of the Whiskey. Make sure you don’t grab any materials other than glass, because other materials don’t do justice to the taste.
Make sure you don’t pour too much right away. You can start with 1 finger (around 30 to 50 ml). You can always donate later, but of course you can’t.
First try pure
Try to drink your Whiskey pure before adding water or ice. This not only gives you a better picture of the aroma and smell, but you can also better decide whether you want to do something with it. If you like the taste of alcohol, you might just like it better.
Smell before you drink
Smell your whiskey 2 or 3 times before taking a sip. Keep your nose in the glass and take a deep breath. You may need to repeat this several times before you actually smell the aroma, as the alcohol smell may predominate the first time you breathe in. Then you may smell other properties such as herbs. Also keep your mouth open while smelling, to get even more of the fragrance.
Roll the whiskey in your mouth
Don’t just throw your whiskey back. Take small gulps and move it over your tongue. After you swallow, wait a while before taking another sip and take the time to appreciate the taste. This will make you taste more flavors such as caramel, toffee or vanilla.
Even now you can take a deep breath during the sip, to appreciate even more of the aromas. And don’t you like the whiskey after the first sip? No problem sometimes the first sip is a bit overwhelming because of the alcohol. So don’t give up.
Add some water
If after the first sips you think it is too strong, pour some clean fresh water and stir it quickly with a straw. This will make the alcohol less strong and the other more subtle flavors will emerge. Play around with this until you have found the perfect ratio.
Or an ice cube
If you like a cold whiskey, put a big ice cube in it. Even if there are people who get their nose at the idea of a whiskey on the rocks, there is nothing wrong with adding a little ice. It’s your drink and you have to make it the way you like it.
take your time
Because the taste is an important reason to drink whiskey, you will be happy if you do not drink everything away too quickly. You enjoy more if you take the time with this drink. Give yourself about 30 to 60 minutes to finish your drink.
