It is claimed that drinking Scotch is one among the many arts of Manliness. Scotch cannot be understood in the first rendezvous. Often, it takes some experience to play with it to the fullest. Here's is an introduction. Dram is just a teaspoon of Scotch, precisely, 1/8 of a fluid ounce. However, it is right to ask for a "Dram of Scotch" when you mean a glass of it. Choosing the glass is preliminary. According to experts, tulip shaped glass is the best choice to drink a Dram of Scotch. The shape allows swirling the liquid and concentrates the aroma near the neck of the glass. Other good options are wine or champagne glasses. Take the glass and pour a little Scotch into it. Although it depends on your choice, the amount is usually not more than an ounce. Now swirl the glass slowly such that it forms a coating on the sides of the glass. It would bring out the aroma out of the drink, while you enjoy the color and the texture it forms on the glass.
