Book Description

April 15 2002
This intriguing exploration of Irish whiskey takes an in-depth look at its history, its impact on Ireland's culture and economics, and the fascinating wealth of lore that surrounds Ireland's fastest growing export. From its humble beginnings as Moorish alembic and Gaelic uisce beatha to its role in defeating the Spanish Armada and its triumph over the Total Abstinence crusade, the history of Irish whiskeys winds its way from the dawn of time to its present-day popularity. Explaining how whiskey is made; the difference between single malts, blends, and pot-still whiskeys; and how to become a true connoisseur of region, flavor, and quality, this book also includes information on Irish law and tasting notes on the 60 most sought-after Irish whiskeys.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Whiskeys of Ireland describes the history and background of Irish Whiskey, the Irish Whiskey industry, and the important people associated with Irish Whiskey. It is a fascinating read, just right for relaxing and perusing with a Glencairn whisky glass in hand (or within reach). The book also includes reviews of Irish whiskies which could be used as a guide for making purchases. My opinion did not always agree with the author. I say try them all, pick your own favorites, and see if you agree with the author. You enjoy the whiskey; you'll enjoy the book.
