Selecting Your Scotch

There are many different Scotch options out there. When you’re making a Godfather, you can choose between single malt scotch and blended scotch and then choose a brand.

Single Malt Scotch is a type of Scotch that is made from 100% malted barley. This type of Scotch is perfect for those who prefer a smokier and more intense flavor profile. Single Malt Scotch is a great option for those who want to make a Godfather cocktail with a more intense flavor.

Blended Scotch is a type of Scotch that is made from a blend of different whiskies. This type of Scotch is perfect for those who prefer a smoother and less intense flavor profile. Blended Scotch is a great option for those who want to make a Godfather cocktail with a less intense flavor.

While the traditional Godfather cocktail is made with Scotch whisky, you can substitute bourbon for a twist on the classic recipe if you prefer. The resulting cocktail will have a slightly different flavor profile, as bourbon has a sweeter and smoother taste than Scotch whisky.
