There are numerous chemical reactions that happen to make your favorite whisky but it's the Oxygen on this glass that helps make Scotch so distinctive. Ethanol compounds interact with the oak barrels, releasing oak tannins that interact with oxygen and create acetals. That acetic acid converts to fruity esters that contribute to the beautiful aroma of single malt Scotch. So raise a glass and give three cheers to chemistry!
