Got Questions About Whiskey? We’ve Got You Covered!

Whiskey is a lifelong passion! Once you taste some, you will always want more.

The term whisky means the water of life. Originally, it came from the Gaelic word “uisge beatha” or “usquebaugh”

Both are correct! It means the same thing. If the whisky is made in Scotland, Canada or Japan, it is usually spelled without the letter e, which is whisky. If referring to whiskey made in the United States or Ireland then it is spelled with an e – whiskey.

There are nine main types of whiskey in the market though additional, not as mainstream types are also available for purchase.

The 9 main types of whisky consist of:

  • Irish whiskey
  • Scotch whiskey
  • Japanese whiskey
  • Canadian whiskey
  • Bourbon whiskey
  • Tennessee whiskey
  • Rye whiskey
  • Blended whiskey
  • Single malt whisky

Irish whiskey is also considered to be the father of all whiskeys. It has a smoother flavour compared to other types of whisky and is made from a mix of malt. It can only be distilled using water and caramel colouring.

Scotch whiskey is made in Scotland. It is also known simply as “Scotch” and is originally made from malted barley. However, nowadays it can be made from malt or grain or a blend of the two.

There are five main categories of Scotch Whiskey which are

  • single malt scotch whiskey
  • single grain scotch whiskey
  • blended grain scotch whiskey
  • blended malt scotch whiskey
  • blended scotch whiskey

Japanese whiskey is created to imitate scotch whiskey. It uses similar distilling methods as scotch whiskey.

Canadian whiskey contains a high percentage of corn, which makes it lighter and smoother than other types of whisky. Usually, Canadian whiskey is made from corn and rye but may sometimes be made out of wheat or barley as well.

Bourbon is made from at least 51% corn. This type of whisky originates from America and there is no minimum aging period.

Although technically classified as bourbon, Tennessee whisky producers are not too keen on that. It uses a filtering step called the Lincoln County Process before aging.

Rye whisky is also made in America and has to be of at least 51% rye. Rye is spicier than bourbon but follows the same distilling process.

Single malt whisky is made from a single batch of scotch at a single distillery. The main ingredient of single malt whisky is barley but in America, a single malt is sometimes made from rye.

Scotch whiskey usually tastes rather smokey. This is caused by its origin. Prior to being grinded and mashed, the barley is dried over a fire, leading to a rather peaty smell.

To mature, scotch whisky must be placed in oak casks or barrels for a minimum of three years. Often it is matured for a longer period of time.The term “finishing” refers to the extension of the maturation process when the spirit is then filled into empty casks. These empty casks would have previously held other wines or spirits for a relatively short period of time at the end of maturation.The cask that is used for finishing must not contain any liquid before it is used. If it does contain any liquid, it has to be drained. If there is any change of the spirit, it will result in its interaction over time with the wood of the cask.

This really depends on where you are in the world when you are consuming it.

If you are in Scotland, where scotch whisky originated, it is enjoyed with a little bit of water. The same goes if you are located in the United Kingdom.

If you are in Spain, the people over there like to mix it with cola.

In Japan, scotch whisky is enjoyed with a lot of ice and water.

In China, it is enjoyed with cold green tea.

All over the world, scotch whisky is enjoyed and it is exciting to see how it is drunk! However, we caution that this spirit should be enjoyed responsibly, as with all drinks!

Whisky does not mature in the bottle. If you keep a 10 year old bottle for another 50 years, it will forever remain a 10 year old bottle of whisky.

You should keep the bottle out of direct sunlight, even if it is opened, so that it does not lose its taste. It is best to store your scotch whisky in a cupboard at home at room temperature.

By law, the minimum alcoholic content is 40% alcohol by volume. Some bottles, such as the BRUICHLADDICH The Classic Laddie Scottish Barley contains 50% alcohol strength or the KILKERRAN 12 Year Old has 46% alcohol strength.

Alcohol strength can go up to 66% of alcohol by volume.

In the United Kingdom and in Europe, the law states that scotch whisky has to be at least three years old.

However, most producers mature the whisky for a longer period of time than the legal minimum.

It is perfectly normal for your scotch whisky to look cloudy when it is stored at low temperatures. However, when it returns to room temperature, the cloudiness will disappear.

If ice is added to scotch whisky that is non-chill filtered, it will go cloudy even when it is in a glass.

Scotch whisky is known globally due to its many factors such as its heritage, quality and craft. There are many varieties of whisky available and some people love collecting bottles.

Old and rare whiskies are also sold at a higher price. Some are even auctioned off so if you want to invest in the scotch whisky industry, these are the ones to go for. However, before purchasing any bottles, you should check the brand, origin and so on to ensure that it is the real thing. In other words, do your research!

A standard measure of scotch whisky is 25ml.

In a standard measure of scotch whisky, it usually contains about 55 calories.

Yes, you can. Scotch whisky is not produced from any animal products. It is therefore suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

A grain that contains gluten is usually an ingredient in scotch whisky. However, all traces of gluten are removed when the liquor is distilled. This makes scotch whisky gluten free.

There are a wide range of selections when it comes to Irish whiskey brands. A few big names include Jameson and Tullamore D.E.W.

Some bottles of Irish whiskey to try include BUSHMILLS Black Bush.

You can make universal favourite cocktails such as Irish coffee where baristas mix whiskey with coffee and other refreshing drinks such as the Irish tea party. Another popular drink to go with Irish whiskey is the Irish slammer.

When you are choosing a scotch whisky, you can look for the term “single malt” on the label of the bottle. Single malt whisky is produced by a single distillery.

Popular single malt whisky brands include Glen Scotia, The Macallan and The Glenlivet.

Most of these brands carry the most expensive whiskeys in the world but they also carry other, more affordable labels.

You can start off with any of these brands of whisky. Tastes will vary depending on person as each person has different preferences. Producers have come up with different blends to suit the palettes of everyone.

The key is to try as many types of whisky as possible to find a blend that suits you.
