    【Whisky 101】5 Ways to Enjoy Whisky


    In recent years, more and more people love to drink whisky. But do you know how many ways to drink whisky are there? Besides drinking neat, adding ice or water, or even mixing with soda water or coffee to make cocktails are also popular ways to enjoy whisky. Let’s decide the most suitable ways for you from the 5 ways to drink whisky as below!

    1. Neat


    Whisky neat is recognized as the purest way to drink whisky. Drinking room temperature whisky in a glass allows people to experience the original style of different whisky brand. However, as whisky contains high alcohol content, drinking whisky neat won’t be usually reserved for beginners to taste straight.

    2. On the rocks


    Another common way to drink whisky is “On the rocks”, which means adding ice to whisky. This can help to cool down and dilute the whisky to make it easier to drink. It should be noted that large ice ball should be used so that the ice would not melt too fast lest over-diluting the whisky.

    3. With Water


    You can also add water into whisky to dilute the whisky. It will boost the concentration of flavour compounds at the surface of the whisky, thereby unleashing the rich mix of aromas. For beginners, you can dilute it up to 1:1 (equal parts whisky and water) to soften the whisky. For wine enthusiasts, diluting it with a few drops of water can improve the flavours without declining the whisky dramatically.

    4. Mizuwari


    In Japan, Mizuwari is a very popular way to drink whisky – it means mixing water and ice with whisky. Japanese will first fill the glass with ice and add 1:2 or 1:2.5 of whisky to water. This is making the whisky be less alcoholic while retaining most of the flavours. It is perfect to be served with meals.

    5. Cocktail


    There are a lot of whisky cocktails for you to try. For example, the most common and famous cocktail “highball” is mixed with whisky and soda water; the “Irish coffee” cocktail is mixed with sugar, coffee, whiskey and topped with cream. Other well-known cocktails, such as “Manhattan”, “Godfather” and “Old Fashioned”,  are also popular among whisky lovers.

    There are so many ways to drink whisky! It’s time for you to get a few bottles of whisky to try. For those who love traditional styles can try Johnnie Walker, which is a prestigious brand for blended whisky; those who want to try something new can choose Glyph, the world’s first molecular whisky!
