What is Irish Whiskey?
Irish Whiskey is a triple distilled whiskey at a maximum strength of 94.8% ABV. Filled and aged in Ireland in Used Oak Barrels, this brown spirit is made from malted and un-malted barley.
Irish Whiskey vs Scotch
The popular debate between Irish Whiskey vs Scotch boils down to a few differences that distinguish the spirits from one another, but also certain similarities that made them into the competitors they are today.
First, Irish Whiskey must be made in Ireland.
Secondly, Irish Whiskey has a smoother finish than most Scotches, most known for their smoky and earthy flavors. Irish Whiskey is generally unpeated, meaning it has no smoky overtones. This makes Irish Whiskey a comparatively lighter spirit in nature. Irish Whiskey is therefore a great entry-level beverage for those beginning to acquire the taste.
Lastly, just like scotch, a triple distilled Irish Whiskey must be aged a minimum of three years in a wooden cask. This cask is most likely oak and may be new or even previously used, to add a more dynamic taste to the spirit.
