Art of Living : Cigar & Scotch

There is no right or wrong way to drink Scotch whisky - it's all down to personal taste. We prefer our Scotch neat, and our rankings are based on this. However, here are a few suggestions:

Many who take their Scotch neat say they don't want to spoil the taste by adding water. Conversely, an equal number say that adding a touch of pure, soft spring water serves to enhance the particular aroma and flavor of a whisky. Ordinary tap water may contain high amounts of chlorine and therefore would not complement any whisky. Your best bet is to opt for bottled Scottish mineral water, ideally the same spring water used in the making of the Black Dog Scotch whisky!

The year was 1492. Christopher Columbus not only discovered a New World, but a wonderful new enjoyment that is delighting connoisseurs throughout the entire world to this day: Tobacco.

From tobacco came the cigar, and with it the unprecedented popularity that spread throughout Europe and the United States, attracting presidents, kings, generals, gentlemen, and a fair number of women. In fact, in 1900 an estimated four out of five men in the U.S. were cigar smokers.

Cuba led the way in the cigar industry. Early in the 16th century, Cuban peasants became tobacco growers. Later, the cigar became the country's national symbol and the Havana cigar became recognized as the world's finest.
