Popular Scotch Brands That Have Been Unmatched in Taste for Years

Scotch, a gentlemans' drink. A drink that has been used as a status symbol since ages. Scotch is something which every successful man drinks and a young teen hopes to drink someday. Alcoholic drinks represent the country they originate from. History says that beer came from Germany, vodka from Russia, and scotch originated from Scotland; so it is obvious that the most popular brands come from the land of bagpipes.

There is a huge difference between Scotch Whisky and Whiskey (Bourbon in USA). The differing factors are not just the places where they come from, but also the ingredients used in their formation and the way they're written. Scotch is whisky made in Scotland, while Bourbon is whiskey made in USA (Kentucky). Scotch is made from malted barley, while Bourbon is made from distilled corn.

There were years when I was a beer and tequila guy, then I got real fat. And then I found that you could actually go on a diet and drink scotch. Then I got hooked on scotch, and if you get hooked on scotch, then everything else just tastes wrong. ~ Ron White.

I think the above quote represents every emotion that scotch lovers feel for their favorite drink, long before Don Draper from Mad Men made men realize that drinking scotch is cool. Among all the alcoholic spirits available, scotch is considered the ultimate icon of manliness. It is a drink not everyone enjoys, but those who do, can't get enough of it. The main ingredients of a great scotch whisky are good water, malt, fermented barley, distillation, some presto and you have yourself the best scotch.
