Whiskey is usually called Scotch Whiskey, while Irish and American whiskey indicates spirits. Admired – whiskey is not, and has never been, just a simple drink.

The difference between Bourbon, Scottish, Irish and Rye
So, what is the whiskey? It is basically a distilled liquor from fermented grain and aged in oak barrels. Traditionally, whiskey is made from barley, corn and rye, but you can really do just about any time, including quinoa, buckwheat and oats. And did you know that whiskey is a clear liquor before being cut? The dark color comes in fact only in the white oak that ages with 60% of the flavor.
Now what is Bourbon? Sweeter than other whiskeys, bourbon is made of a mixture of grains that is at least 51% corn and matured in oak barrels in the United States. And rye whiskey, which tends to be lighter in color, is distilled from at least 51% of rye. No surprise. Now we will speak Irish. Irish whiskey is a light whiskey full-bodied yeast fermented pureed and aged grain in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland.
To be considered as Scotch whiskey, Scotch whiskey must be made from malted barley, with an age of less than three years and, of course, 100% in Scotland. Scotch whiskey tends to be smokey and earthy flavors. Wondering how to tell the difference between a mix and a single malt? It’s easy. A mixed whiskey is literally a mixture of malts and grain whiskeys from different distilleries. And single malt scotch is essentially the product of a single distillery. Contrary to popular belief, it is a myth that blends are not as good as malts (despite what they say snobs). While blended Scotch whiskey has more than one persistent finish, simple malts have a fruity sweetness on a dry finish.
