Some say the only difference between scotch whisky and Irish whiskey is the spelling of the word “whiskey” itself. Scotch famously loses the, “e” - it’s their thing. But there’s more to it than that. While both of them are fermented with barley, Irish whiskey is smooth, triple distilled, and mostly unmalted. Scotch, on the other hand, is smokey, malted, and usually distilled twice.How do you drink Irish whiskey?
If you’re not an avid Irish whiskey drinker, adding water to your drink is not a bad thing.
