Whiskey (and Whisky) aficionados take note, the website Spirits of Scotland has compiled some essential reading for anyone who has ever pondered the difference between the two spellings or been slightly unsure of how much water to add when trying to maximize a spirit’s flavors. The article, 10 Things You Need to Know When Drinking Whisky offers some insight into the finer points of whiskey and can help you avoid embarrassing questions if you ever find yourself among a crowd that seems to know exactly what they’re doing. It might not be to everyone’s taste, but since Daily Fork sure does love its alcohol, it seemed worth taking note. Also, even if you don’t read the entire article, just remember, don’t order an expensive whisky on the rocks. Ever.
