OMG... pu enhanced scotch. I'm going to do it! That's probably sacrilege here.
Aye, that be sacrilege. Ya mess with scotch, ya mess with Scotland!
Not the direction I thought it would go but either way works for me. I watch a scotch reviewer on YouTube and he was talking about how if you come across a scotch that doesn't do much for you, that you could enhance the taste by adding different types of taste enhancers
to the bottle. He showed adding a thin piece of scorched oak to the bottle and then letting it set for a period. I came across a bottle of scotch whose flavor didn't do much for me. A year or so later I had a bit of Fireball and said yeah that's good. And it struck me that I could add a cinnamon stick to the bottle, which I did, and let it set for a period of time, which lapsed. So I tasted the red scotch and it tasted like cinnamon... pure cinnamon. I let the scotch sit too long and worse no way to get the cinnamon stick out of the bottle. I have a wee dram of that scotch on occasion.
And as far as messing with scotch... the scotts mess with it by putting it in french sherry casks...
