Αξιολόγηση:

Just as it says on the tin – a smoky malt and cola. This simple but delicious drink perhaps doesn't need bitters or even a twist but it's better with these subtle embellishments.

Παραλλαγές:

Floaty Smoky Cokey – with ice cream.

Ιστορία:

Jack & Coke is a famous combo but until the Smoky Cokey, Scotch whisky was restricted to soda water or perhaps ginger ale. So for his 2014 book, Whisky: The Manual, Dave Broom set out to discover the best mixer for various Scotch whiskies, trying everything from soda water to green tea. His discovery that Lagavulin is delicious with cola is the origin of the Smoky Cokey.

Dave's discovery was picked up by Colin Dunn, Diageo's whisky ambassador, who I remember talking about what he christened the "Smoky Cokey" at a Diageo World Class event, circa 2016. At the 2000 Feis Ile (Islay whisky festival) Collin served 35ml of Lagavulin 16 Year Old in a Martini glasses topped with almost flat cola. He presented them on a silver tray to his guests on Lagavulin pier.

Dave Broom discovered this delicious combination of whisky and cola but it is Colin Dunn who made the Smoky Cokey a contemporary classic.
