Ha, always nice to see Richard Patterson doing his thing.
I know this guy, used to see him a lot when I worked for a whisky company in Scotland. He's a lot of fun and this schtick is well rehearsed. He is also a master blender and knows his shit when it comes to whisky. He once let me have a taste of 60 year old Dalmore when he did a tasting at the Edinburgh University whisky society. Great guy.

I'm sorry but I'll have to break scotch tasting etiquette by NOT THROWING WHISKEY ON THE FLOOR.

Too much bloody water.
negative. you can tell good quality whisky from bad by watering it down. if it still tastes good at 20% you know you have something good, if it tastes like crap you know you've been had. When evaluating cask samples to potentially bottle as part of my job I regularly watered it down to 10% to see if there were any off notes, as higher alcohol percentage masks undesirable flavors.

This is the Scottish Ron Swanson.

This is completely alien to me. It's like a dispatch from another universe where ethanol doesn't smell like cleaning fluid. My primary criteria for scotch is the hangover the next day, and the secondary criteria is how foul it tastes.
Based on this model and extensive testing, the best single malt scotch so far is Cragganmore, and the best blended scotch is Johnnie Walker Black.
It's not just ethanol, it's ethanol that has been left standing in burnt wood barrels.

I'd chase it with sprite, right in front of his face. Diet sprite. I dont even like diet sprite.

That's a lot of pomp and ceremony for not-bourbon.

Whyte and Mackay? Its ok for a daily drink, but for a tutorial video?
I like what he said though.
Well, he threw out half of it.

I love Scotch. Ardbeg is so far my favorite. I've always just put one shot on one icecube in a small glass (several times over if possible). I smelled it, but I never got all up in its shit. Scotch is an alcohol that is to be romanced and enjoyed, like a girlfriend you actually love. Whereas vodka, tequila, rum etc is like some nasty person you fucked in the bathroom at a Six Flags theme park. Don't get me wrong, I love vodka too. But one is special and one is just a tasty thing that gets you drunk.

Why are you guys acting like this was a serious video on how to drink scotch? Is that the real joke? You get that he was being ridiculous right?
Also, almost all the distilleries are producing 24/7 to keep up with demand, and can't expand without changing the flavor. If you're happy drinking rum and coke, please just stick with that.
