Now courtesy of Inside the Cask, anyone with the new Amazon Echo, can learn more about Scotch Whisky through a fun and short quiz to test your own knowledge on the subject in the UK or the US.
For those people that may not be aware, Amazon Echo is the brand new launch from Amazon in the UK (already been out in the US since 2015). For reference, here is a link to the description of Amazon Echo in Wikipedia.
This is how Amazon describes it:
Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more. Prime members can also ask Alexa to order eligible products they’ve ordered before and many Prime products. All you have to do is ask.
All you have to do is talk to Alexa…
And now you can also learn more about Scotch whisky through some simple multiple choice questions and test your knowledge. Just enable the ‘Scotch Whisky Quiz by Inside the Cask’ voice app or ‘skill’ within your Amazon Alexa app and test yourself!
It is free to use courtesy of Inside the Cask and available in the UK and US. There are 10 questions asked each time with 3 possible answers to each one of them. Every time you play this will change as the number of questions in total within the voice app (the ‘skill’) is higher than 10.
Please send any feedback to me via the contact form on the Inside the Cask website – link here.
