What is Irish Whiskey?
Irish whiskey is triple distilled whiskey which was born and raised in Ireland, distilled until a maximum of 94.8% ABV. This brown spirit is made from malted and unmalted 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, who are known for their smoky and earthy flavours. Irish whiskey is generally unpeated, meaning it has no smoky overtones. This makes Irish whiskey a comparatively lighter spirit. Irish whiskey is therefore a good entry-level drink for those joining the whiskey movement and beginning to acquire the taste.
Thirdly, 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. This Irish alcohol is the fastest growing spirit in the world as its exports have increased by over 300% in the last decade.
