It’s No Rocket Science, Not a Bike Ride Either

Drink your drink right! – This is probably the one thing that is not appreciated enough when it comes to the idea of having a fine drink. I myself was ignorant about the means of the sophisticated when I had my first glass in my hand. It is definitely not rocket science, you need not be pro to appreciate the beauty, taste and feel of a soulful drink. It is however, not a bike ride either, a drink gulped in one go is demeaning its existence.

The Original

I have done my research and found people who know what they are doing and here are my finds,

Holster the Drink – Pour at least 1-1.5 ounce of scotch into the glass. Swirl it. Feel the power in your hand.

Feel the Aroma – Feeling the Aroma is feeling the essence of the drink. Our olfactory senses are given quite the treat with a fine glass of Black Dog Scotch Whisky. Concentrate on the smells and pick out individual aromas. Give the glass an occasional swirl or two as it helps release more of those volatile compounds that make your drink perfect.

The First Sip – Sip in a small amount at first, only enough to cover your tongue. Hold the whisky in your mouth for a while till it stops burning on your tongue and you feel the sweetness underneath. Swirl it around your mouth, making sure to feel the divinity in the spirit. After you are done figuring out the individual flavors, swallow.

Feel the ‘Finish’ – Gulping down Scotch immediately leave a burning sensation in the mouth. One must be patient and let the drink linger in the mouth for a while. It goes down ‘smooth’ – without burning your throat. Sip. Breathe, breathe a lot, as you will start to realise the flavors that remain on your tongue, gums, and the walls of your mouth. This is the ‘finish’, and can last anywhere from a few seconds to several hours. This is where there is a transition from smelling the drink, to tasting the aromas.

Traveling with a good companion

“The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land” – Gilbert K. Chesterton.

On the Foreigner’s Footsteps

Travelling is fun. Travelling alone is even better. You’re the master of your own fate. YOU decide which place you want to go to, YOU decide how long you’re willing to stay there and YOU decide what you do while your stay. I have been on quite a few lonesome trips in my life and it might sound ‘sad’ for some who have yet to experience the pleasure of the same.

I have traveled to quite a few places in India. Places I’ve been to, have offered me chances of partying all night long and/or relaxing for the better half of the week. It all depends where you are heading to and how you intend to make the most of the day.

Where ever I’ve been to, Black Dog Scotch Whisky has always given me company. The perfect companion, whether you are out partying with your friends or sipping it from a glass at a beach reading your favorite novel. It has the versatility and the perfect blend that ensures you good times. I carry a bottle of Black Dog and my Whisky glass if I plan to head to a secluded area where all I look for is peace and some time to unwind and relax. If it is about hanging out near pubs and in cities, Black Dog is well known and easily available brand. There is something about this drink that does not let me complete my journey without an instance of it’s taste on my tongue at least a couple of times.

Would it not be the perfect day to return home a stranger? Travelling has the potential to teach things that lie beyond classrooms – Experiences!
