That brings us to the most important part of this entire journey, the TASTING. Traditional Scotch Whisky will be served in a Dram in any bar or distillery in Scotland. In terms of measure, a Dram is around 35 to 30 ml of whisky.

While there is no right way to have your scotch whisky, a dram of whisky with a drop of ice cold water is believed to be the best way to open up the oils, and in turn the flavours and notes of the whisky.

To savour a Dram the Scottish way, follow the 3 steps -
- Smell your Dram three times to feel the notes
- Take a small sip and let it sit in your mouth as the saliva opens the flavours
- Rinse it around your mouth to extract the flavours on your tongue and then gulp it

Hope you had fun exploring the art and science of making a Scotch Malt Whisky.

Till then, Slàinte Mhath!!
