Scotch is a type of whisky – entirely made and bottled in Scotland – with a distinctive smoky taste. It’s made mainly from malted barley which is heated over a peat fire before being fermented. Scotch is often said to have an acquired taste while its cousin, Bourbon (a whiskey made in the USA), is considered easier to drink. This is because the taste of Scotch is bolder and sharper. Bourbon is made from fermented corn. Scotch is the primary ingredient in the Penicillin Cocktail, a drink made popular in Manhattan in the early 2000s.
Blended Scotch tends to be smoother than the single malt varieties. This is because “blended” means that ingredients and batches are taken from several distilleries and mixed to create buttery, spicy flavors that dance across the tongue while drinking. Single malt comes from only one distillery, making the final product dependent on the quality of the base ingredients, the weather during the growing season, and the conditions of the aging process.
Queen Victoria was a big promoter of Scotch. In fact, she drank it instead of pure water after athletic ventures and after the christening of her royal offspring. She allowed just two distillers to use her official patronage, making them the premier brands of the mid to late 1800s.
Another famous Scotch drinker was Margaret Thatcher. She famously requested blended Scotch on any day she ate meat, which was four out of the seven days of the week. She was often seen with this drink in her hand at the liquor station located in the same building as the House of Commons.
Scotch is a whisky, while Bourbon is a type of whiskey. Scotch, Japanese, and Canadian varieties are spelled without the E. To be spelled with the E, a whiskey must have been made in either the US or Ireland.
