  10. 10. How many years must whisky be aged in the barrel for it to be called Scotch? Three years and one day, in Scotland Note: Unlike wine, whisky will not age in the bottle
  11. 11. WHAT IS THE ANGEL’S SHARE? • The amount of whisky lost to evaporation • An 53 gallon barrel will have an estimated 25 gallons left after 18 years of aging • Water is added to bring the alcohol level to compliance, but be 40% or more
  12. 12. WHICH SCOTCH WAS ALLOWED TO BE SOLD DURING PROHIBITION? Laphroaig (depicted at the right) was the only Scotch whisky that could still be imported and sold legally by apothecaries during the prohibition that plagued the US in the 1920's. The reason was its medicinal taste. I guess the government officials who tried it couldn't imagine anybody drinking the stuff out of their own free will - it's not for the faint of heart.
  13. 13. WHICH PRESIDENTS PREFERRED SCOTCH • Woodrow Wilson • Dwight Eisenhower • Lyndon B Johnson
  14. 14. WHAT DOES SINGLE REFER TO IN SINGLE MALT SCOTCH? • That the product came from a single distillery, NOT a single barrel • Multiple barrels are often mixed to create a Single Malt scotch • It allows for greater consistency
  15. 15. HOW BEST TO DRINK SINGLE MALT SCOTCH • Recommended with a splash of water to open the flavor • ICE CUBES or NEAT • First Rule: Enjoy it - don’t let snobbery ruin your drink • That said, rarely would you use mixers with Single Malt Scotch
  16. 16. HOW MUCH IS A “POUR” OF SCOTCH • As much as the bartender feels is appropriate
  17. 17. WHISKEY AMERICAN STYLE
  18. 18. WHISKEY MADE IN THE UNITED STATES • Bourbon whiskey—made from mash that consists of at least 51% corn (maize) • Corn whiskey—made from mash that consists of at least 80% corn • Malt whiskey—made from mash that consists of at least 51% malted barley • Rye whiskey—made from mash that consists of at least 51% rye • Rye malt whiskey—made from mash that consists of at least 51% malted rye • Wheat whiskey—made from mash that consists of at least 51% wheat
  19. 19. BOURBON - THE AMERICAN STANDARD FOR WHISKEY • Must be made in the United States. • Must contain 51 percent corn. • Must be aged in new oak charred barrels. • Must be distilled to no more than 160 proof and entered into the barrel at 125 proof. • Must be bottled at no less than 80 proof. • Must not contain any added flavoring, coloring or other additives. All Bourbon is Whiskey, not all Whiskey is Bourbon
  20. 20. JACK DANIELS IS NOT BOURBON, BUT THE MOST POPULAR OF ALL AMERICAN WHISKEY • Jack Daniels adds a unique charcoal-drip step to the process before putting it into an Oak Barrel • That disqualifies it from being called a bourbon whiskey • But it is a great whisky from Tennessee • Old Number 7: legend says Jack Daniels had 7 Girlfriends. But the truth it, it is his secret and he took it to his grave.
