Today is National Scotch Day, ….
So let’s find some music to play on this very special Holiday and pour ourselves a nice glass of scotch, sit back and listen to the music 🎧
Here is some Classic Billie Holiday …
Riffin the Scotch
There are many great songs about Whisky, but very few that mention “Scotch” … I love Billie Holiday and this is one of my favourite of her songs. She doesn’t explicitly mention the word “Scotch” in the Song but she tells the story of a tragic decision that leads her to the bottle … maybe at the end we hear the uncorking of the bottle.
It’s almost 9:00 am here and time for a drink….
Observed each year on July 27, National Scotch Day celebrates the iconic whisky. In order to be considered scotch, this classy and distinctive spirit must be made in Scotland. It must be fermented from malted barley, aged in oak barrels for at least three years and have an ABV or alcohol content of less than 94.8%. While most scotch is made with barley, water and yeast; other grains can be included. All fermentation additives are excluded, per law. There are five distinct classifications of Scotch whisky including single malt scotch, single grain scotch, blended malt scotch, blended grain scotch and blended scotch. Scotch is often identified by the region where it was produced and each region has its own characteristics that influence taste. Despite scotch being made in Scotland, you can enjoy the spirit anywhere. Kilt not required.
