More and more whisky enthusiasts are buying Swiss whisky. Because connoisseurs swear by Swiss whisky for two reasons: Firstly, Swiss single malt or Swiss bourbon is at least as high in quality as Irish whisky, Scotch whisky, or bourbon whisky, and secondly, Swiss whiskies pack a punch, while remaining both discrete and highly compelling. Swiss whisky is usually less smoky, distinctively fruity, multilayered, and wonderfully full-bodied.
The question of how a fine Swiss whisky is to be enjoyed is as old as whisky itself – and the answer to this is purely “a matter of taste”. Each and every whisky connoisseur enjoys their Swiss single malt or Swiss bourbon whisky as their preference dictates: neat, on the rocks, or at room temperature. Many whisky connoisseurs like to add a few drops of water to their Swiss whisky, especially when drinking the strong “cask strength” variety. This amplifies in the nose the smooth aromas and flavors that make Swiss whisky so distinctive and unique, which further intensifies the taste sensation.
