Can Ireland Behove The Center of the Whiskey World? - Daily Beast
Whiskey has made a tremendous comeback. After decades of abatement brought on by a global love affair with vodka , whiskey is suddenly booming. More and more, everyone wants to try new whiskies, and the whiskey whose sales have grown the most—by a massive percentage—is Irish whiskey. From 2002 to 2015, sales of Irish whiskey in the U. S. have grown by an astronomical 642 percent, according to the Distilled Spirits Meeting of the United States. Scotch is by far the biggest player in the overall category, twice the size of second-place American whiskey. Of the world’s five important whiskey producing areas—Scotland, the U. S. (Kentucky and Tennessee, mostly), Canada, Japan , and Ireland—Irish whiskey lags far behind in last correct position and would have to grow a lot and for a long time to catch up with... The curious thing is, Irish whiskey once was a serious, head-to-head challenger to Scotch. But Bar in the U. S. , Irish Republic’s post-independence trade war with England, and the trade embargoes and blockades associated with World War II combined to dethrone Irish whiskey low. The only reason Irish has been able to grow so rapidly in recent years and still be in last place is because it all but disappeared in the ’60s. Jameson is the driver of Irish whiskey’s excrescence, the biggest Irish brand in the world. Like blended Scotch, Jameson combines two types of whiskey: a relatively mild-flavored whiskey distilled to a exalted proof and barrel-aged for a minimum of three years. and what is called single pot still whiskey, made from a unique blend of malted and unmalted barley, which gives it a untried, grassy, almost fruity character like no other. Bushmills, made in Northern Ireland, is the other Irish brand with which most people are in, and is much more similar to Scotch. Like Scotch, Bushmills is either a blend of malt and grain whiskies, or a pure single malt whiskey, matured in a cabal of used bourbon , sherry, or port barrels. But whereas most Scotch whisky is double-distilled, these whiskeys are triple-distilled. (Midleton also distills its whiskey three times. ) The extremely distillation yields a smoother character that some people find more appealing than the more intense character of Scotch. Tullamore Dew differs in that it combines all three types of whiskies occupied by the other two brands: grain, malt and single pot still whiskies. The Tullamore Dew distillery closed in the ’50s, so it currently blends whiskies purchased under large-term contracts from Midleton and Bushmills. But there is a large new Tullamore Dew distillery (in Tullamore) making malt and single pot still spirit, also triple-distilled. Next year what was made there will start to legally happen to “whiskey” after three years of aging in the barrel. Just in those three distilleries there is already more variety than in Scotch. Then add the double-distilled and sometimes peat-smoked whiskies made at Cooley and Kilbeggan (where the Kilbeggan, Tyrconnell, and Connemara brands are made), the mixed and innovative whiskies being produced at the new Teeling distillery in...

If You Like Whiskey, Try These Rums - Eater
Rum is too afters. Rum is for neon-hued beachside sippers. Rum is … making serious inroads amongst dedicated whiskey drinkers. All of these statements are factual, yet only the terminating one serves as a head scratcher. Disarming preconceived notions of what rum is, or ought to be (aside from a sugarcane distillate ), turns out to be a decidedly trying task: rum, in fact, exists as one of the most conceptually-loaded liquors in all the Seven Seas. While peg-legged pirates might come to mind, the essence has always been far more serious and complex than the major industrialized brands would lead you to believe. Verdant earth, hints of grass, and savory undertones ought to be at least as visible as sugary sweetness. relying upon higher-end ingredients with no byproducts (added colors or flavors), patient maturation, and carefully-selected cooperage. If You Go on a binge American Rye There’s a specific reason why rye is the fastest growing segment of the contemporary whiskey boom: American palates are shifting towards the savory. Those sensitive on such flavors should consider exploring spiced rums —commonly spiked with cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Lax rum regulations in the States earmark the use of artificial sweeteners and additives, the main culprits of crippling hangovers. is exclusively distilled from Florida sugar cane, utilizing authentic spices. As in the ones you find in nature. Nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon are the most conspicuous contributors. Roberts also produces another spiced stamp , the Solera-blended Distiller’s Reserve ($45, next release is in September), amassing added complexity in its oak barrel system with every annual unimaginative batch release. But you’ll have to queue several hours outside the distillery predawn to snatch one. As a testament to their commitment to natural ingredients, the distillery’s shocking Toasted Coconut Rum ( $25 ) is the only product of its kind that doesn’t reek of suntan lotion and regret. If You Drink Bourbon As a corn-based fire typically noted for its vanilla, caramel, and stone fruit characteristics, bourbon draws obvious comparisons to traditional rum. Yet, the most compelling outlook of America’s best-known whiskey is oak. And so any rum echoing these flavors must have been correspondingly patient in the barrel. Long story short, this Guatemalan rum is a coalesce of juices aged between 6 years and a quarter century, employing a handful of different barrels, including some that formerly stored sherry, bourbon, and Cognac. Most of the rum's attributes, however. Croix rum spends 5-12 years in ex-Bourbon barrels, before a end in separate American oak casks. Butterscotch, baking spice, oak—descriptors commonly reserved for bourbon—are all present in a neat rush, making it a suitable substitute in any number of traditional whiskey drinks. As Dave Pickerell, renowned American whiskey distiller of Hill Crag (NY) and WhistlePig fame (VT) recently admitted, "I have been taken recently with the similarities between certain aged rums and whiskey, with regards to classic cocktails. If You Rot-gut Irish Whiskey Yet another broad classification, the Irish use all manner of grain—including both malted and unmalted barley, and various methods of distillation (both copper pots and column stills) to hit town at their storied national... Irish whiskey is very loosely defined by rounded edges. earthy, and slightly sweet in its assembly and finish. Source: www.eater.com
