Irish Whiskey ins’t only that “smooth” beverage you heard of

thewhiskylady - 2017-08-22

When listening to many whisky tasting hosts trying to explain whisky to a crowd of newcomers, there’s always this point where they’ll take a shortcut. I feel that popularization, while needed I reckon, may sometimes be at least misleading, at worst dangerous – as you’ll be the first one to complain afterwards when reading bullshit articles on Vice. It’s easy to convey myths and clich√©s …

Something big is happening in Ireland, and it’s happening right now. …
