Scotch whisky vs. bourbon whiskey
For those who enjoy bourbon, you might be wondering how much the taste of scotch differs. Whereas bourbon tends to have a sweeter and more mellow flavour to it (often with notes of vanilla, oak and caramel), scotch embraces more of a sharp and distinctive taste.
Of course, the flavour of scotch varies greatly in its own right as well. Blended scotch provides a smoother taste, often described as malty and buttery, and delivers a spicy finish. Single malts, like the ones we stock here in our online collection, offer oaky/woody aromas with smoky notes from the peat of Scotland.
For a truly palatable experience, our scotch enthusiasts at The Melbourne Wine Store recommend pairing your next glass of scotch with mint chocolate, heavily roasted nuts or fruit. Of course, it also pairs amazingly with steak (particularly sirloin and tenderloin).
Fun facts about scotch
It generates huge tax revenue for the Scottish Government – £125 a second, to be precise.
In 2018, a bottle of Macallan Valerio Adami 1926 broke the record for the world’s most expensive bottle of scotch ever sold, when a 60-year-old sold it at an Edinburgh auction for £848,000 (about AUD $1.5 million).
There is plenty of whisky out there, but to qualify as a “scotch” whisky, it must be distilled in Scotland and aged in casks for at least three years (also in Scotland).
