World Whisky Day is but a day away. You didn’t know? Well, we are here to tell you that tomorrow, because of the fact it’s officially World Whisky Day (got it now?), you can drink and enjoy the amber stuff more legitimately than at any other time of year. Sure, you may need little invitation to raise a dram whatever the day of the year, but one shouldn’t complain that we’re being actively encouraged to do so this weekend.
This is all well and good, but not so if we don’t enjoy ourselves responsibly – as we’re constantly reminded in the booze literature. Much like wine, however, few of us actually know what we’re doing when it comes to appreciating whisky properly. So we asked Mr Colin Dunn – a man with 30 years’ experience in the whisky business, and current Diageo malt whisky brand ambassador – for some pointers (including where’s best to drink it).
