If you know me, then you know I enjoy the occasional cocktail after work. I’m specifically a fan of whisky, with a preference for Scotch whisky, and I consider myself our team’s whisky expert. Weekly I share what I call, “Scotch Facts: Your Weekly Dram of Whisky Wisdom” with my office friends and I thought you might like to see it too. Cheers! – Justin

Whisky Fact of the Week:
So you brought your new bottle of whisky home, but how should you take care of your new bundle of joy? Make sure you keep it upright in a dark place at room temperature, and remember not to keep it crying for your attention too long after opening because once you open it, it begins to oxidize and change.

Drunken Vocabulary (Words and terms to impress your friends while drinking):
Rich: Tasting note used to describe a high intensity of character, but can also mean that there’s a sweet aroma associated with it as well.

Lagniappe (a little something extra):
If the price of some vintage whiskies hits in the thousands of dollars, is it worth investing in whisky? Some say it can do pretty well if you have a solid product and hold it over a good number of years, so that single malt you just bought might have some bonus value in a few decades. Of course, if it doesn’t end up doing that well financially, you could always drink it!
