When did drinking Scotch get to be so damn complicated?
There are rules, myths, legends and half-truths that are, for lack of a better term, absolute and utter shite. They can also unfortunately lead to Scotch shaming, preventing you from drinking what you really want to drink. (Bartender: Please just add a few ice cubes to my dram and hold the lecture about the sanctity of whisky’s purity.)
Drinking whisky should, of course, be enjoyable. On this episode of the award-winning podcast Life Behind Bars, co-hosts David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum help you cut through the Scotch snobbery by breaking down the biggest Scotch misconceptions and falsehoods.
So fix a Scotch anyway you like—seriously, we won’t judge you—and listen to this episode of Life Behind Bars.
Life Behind Bars features Half Full editor Noah Rothbaum and its Senior Drinks Columnist David Wondrich, who discuss the greatest bartenders and greatest cocktails of all time. It won the 2018 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Award for the world’s best drinks podcast.
