Scotch Whisky 101

The land of Scotch whisky is filled with many hard to pronounce brands like Lagavulin and Bruichladdich, but it’s not as complicated as you might think. First off, it’s spelled “whisky” without the “e,” unlike American whiskies like bourbon and rye. Secondly, whether you’re buying a single malt whisky or a blended Scotch whisky like Johnnie Walker, it’s most likely going to taste smokey.

If you’re wondering how to drink Scotch, the answer is also simple: however you like it. There are a number of classic cocktails (as well as some modern Scotch cocktails). But if you like your drink a little more simple, it’s hard to find a drink that tastes better neat than a big Scotch. Read our full Scotch guide for everything you need to know about the classic drink.
