Does Swirling Helps Whiskey Taste Better?
It is important to note that whiskey’s strong alcohol taste can sometimes overpower other, more complex flavors such as woody, spicy and vanilla etc. More often you see professional whiskey tasters they swirl a bit of the whiskey glass before smelling the aroma through their nose. The swirling motion aerate the whiskey to let the strong alcohol dilute out with the air.
Aerating whiskey is a process of adding oxygen to the spirit in order to enhance its flavor. This can be done by simply pouring the whiskey into a glass and allowing it to sit for a few minutes, or by using a aerator tool to aerate the whiskey prior to serving. Swirl the glass to aerate it before you smell it. You’ll want to avoid aerating it too much, as this can cause the alcohol to evaporate and the wood flavors to become more pronounced. When aerating whiskey, you’re looking to bring out the subtle flavors and aromas that are often hidden by the alcohol. By aerating the whiskey, you’re helping those flavor molecules interact with each other, giving you a more complex and enjoyable taste.
