The Old Man and the Sea

recipe c The-Old-Man-and-the-SeaDeep umami flavor comes in many forms and can even be found in some single malt Scotches. This infusion ups those umami notes with the addition of dried seaweed.

1/2 sheet Japanese nori (dried seaweed)
375 ml. single malt Scotch (Hanson uses Laphroaig 10 year)
Glass: Glencairn single malt

Combine the nori and Scotch and let the mixture steep for at least 12 hours, shaking periodically. Serve with a splash of water.
