The Old Man and the Sea

Deep 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.
