Tips for Drinking Whiskey
Whiskey is a wonderful and rich spririt which is much loved by men and women all over the world.
If you're new to whiskey drinking, here are some tips to help you get started.
1. Be selective with the kind of whiskey you drink. This is one of those things where you usually can't get away with buying a cheap brand.
2. Drink out of a good glass - preferably a whiskey tumbler. It sounds crazy but the type of glass you drink from will affect the taste of the whiskey.
3. If you find whiskey too intense, try adding water or ice to dilute it a little.
4. Whiskey cocktails are really tasty. So if you find whiskey by itself too strong - try it in a cocktail.
