Is brandy meant to be served cold/warm?


Warming brandy helps to release many aromas from the beverage. I have been a bartender for many years now and find that many people prefer their brandy served warm. There are several techniques to warming brandy. Some people prefer to hold their hands around the glass for a while to warm the brandy, while others use different methods. Here is a link to a video that I find to be a great way to warm brandy.

What does it mean to


Reflow sounds like the article is referring to cracked solder joints, Reflow would mean to reheat the connection and top up means adding some more solder. In electronics, heavy heat sinks often crack where they are soldered because of expansion and contraction. RCA actually came out with a more flexible solder for this issue.

When a player scratches, they pocket the cue ball. In the past players used to keep score on a chalkboard, so when a player pocketed the cue ball, his opponent would proceed to "scratch" a point off the shooters score.
