Types of whisky
Single malt is a malt whisky produced from a single distillery. Single malts are usually associated with Scotland though they are also made in other countries. There are different terms used to describe whiskeys that might be confusing to most people. There are single grain whiskeys, single malt whiskeys, and single barrel whiskeys. Here is the difference between all these. Malt means that the whiskey is made from malted grain. In Single malt Scotch whiskey, the grain is always malted barley, but other countries like the United States use malted rye. The word single means that the whiskey is made from a single distillery. To ensure consistency of single malt whiskeys year after year, distilleries blend whiskeys from different barrels of different ages but the same distillery. The age statement on a single malt bottle indicates the age of the youngest whisky in the blend. On the other hand, single grain whiskey is any whisky made from grain, whether malted or unmalted but produced from a single distillery. The grain does not need to be barley. Single barrel whiskey is whiskey made from a single barrel from a single distillery. Single barrel whiskeys are extremely rare and are only made for limited editions. Single malt Scotch, which is the most popular single malt, must be produced in Scotland and must use malted barley, and aged for a minimum of three years. Single malt price varies depending on the brand and also the age statement.
As the name suggests, this is a combination of different whiskey, which sometimes may have additives like grain spirits, flavors, and colorings. Unlike single malt whiskeys, blended whiskeys can be made from whiskeys sourced from other distilleries. Examples of blended Whiskey include Johnnie walker, Hibiki, Chivas regal, among other brands. The whiskey has a lower aging time hence making its price point lower compared to the single malt. Most blended whiskeys make delicious cocktails due to the combination of premium whiskeys, which brings out a flavor that many whiskey lovers enjoy. However, most drink establishments sell the blended whiskey as a top-shelf premium liquor as some of the blends are from high-grade whiskeys.
Bourbon Whisky is an American Whisky that is primarily made from corn. The origin of the name is uncertain, but its inspiration is founded in the French Bourbon dynasty. For the whiskey to be branded as bourbon, it must meet a minimum of 51% corn, with the remaining being any cereal grain. It should be aged in new oak barrels without putting any additives. The whiskey has a rich sweet taste, a bit smoky, and has a reddish color due to the fermentation process and maturation in charred oak casks. If the whiskey is not blended, then it's called "straight bourbon."
Lovers of country music have probably come across the song "Tennessee whiskey," written by Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove, describing their love for liquor. The only contrast between Tennessee whiskey and Bourbon whiskey is the method of filtering.
The Whiskey production is in the state of Tennessee in the U.S. Previously, the brand was officially labeled as bourbon whiskey, but currently, the manufacturing company never labels them as such on their bottles or their advertisement.
Irish Whisky is made on the island of Ireland. The whiskey has three operational distilleries hence offers a varied, rich array of styles and production methods. Irish whiskey has a smooth finish compared to other types of whiskey. It is usually triple distilled copper pot stills or continuous column stills, made from unmalted barley (though some may use malted barley) blended with grain whiskeys, although there are single malts too. It is then aged for a minimum of three years oak barrels. The easiest way to go about Irish whiskey is with a glass of water and straw. You can as well sip it neat or on the rocks or mix up Irish whiskey cocktails.
Japanese Whisky is a style of whiskey produced and prepared in Japan. It has gained popularity for its high-quality standards that have been maintained over time. The whiskey was crafted to taste close to the Scotch Whiskey hence used similar distilling methods. Japanese whiskeys are rare and often expensive, making them among the most sought-after luxurious whiskey brands. The whiskey goes hand in hand with highballs, or you may as well serve it neat to enjoy the complexity and depth of flavor.
The whiskey is made in Scotland with either malt or grain. All scotch whiskeys have rules put in place that distillers must adhere to. Recently, commercial distilleries have started producing whiskey from wheat and rye. Scotch Whiskey is divided into five categories, namely: single malt scotch, single grain scotch, blended malt scotch, blended grain Scotch, and blended Scotch Whiskey.
All scotch whiskey must age for a minimum of three years in oak barrels. Scotch whiskeys with age statements indicated on the bottle represent the youngest whiskey's age in the blend. However, some Scotch whiskeys have no age statement, but none is aged for less than three years.
Indian whiskey is an Indian made liquor prepared by blending neutral spirits usually distilled from fermented molasses. Indian whiskey has no set standards like distillation from cereals or maturity period; hence outside India, many would refer to it as rum. Most Indian whiskeys have not qualified in the E.U. standards due to the use of molasses, neutral alcohol, and use of flavorings. Such spirits are generally cheap to produce compared to other genuine whiskeys.
