The vast majority of Irish Whiskey is distilled three times compared to the standard double-distillation method that the majority of Scottish distilleries employ.
In addition to this, traditionally Irish Whiskey is completely unpeated, therefore it tends to be smooth and sweet. It cannot really be compared in style to whiskies hailing from the Scottish regions of Islay, Campbeltown and the Islands however it is generally quite similar to Highland, Lowland and Speyside whiskies.
The Irish whisky industry has been enjoying a boom period from 1990 through to the present day with the resulting expansion of the existing distilleries and the establishment of a few new distilleries on the island in recent years taking their total to seven.
Arran - 70cl / 40%
A veritable breath of fresh air. Fresh and light with subtle hints of vanilla and sweet fruits. As blends go, for the money this is truly excellent. I think the Bard would have approved.
Single Malt - 70cl / 40%
Triple distilled from 100% malted barley and matured for a minimum of 10 years in a Bourbon cask. The nose is fresh and zesty with wonderful aromas of vanilla and honey. The palate is soft with milk chocolate flavours. The finish is dry and crisp.
