The peaty, smoky and malty flavours of Scotch can be further explored when mixed with the right ingredients. If you, like us, love Scotch whisky take it from us, Scotch whisky cocktails are just as delightful to sip on. So, give these 5 cocktail recipes a shot that’ll prove to be worth the pour of Scotch.
