Whiskey (Whisky) Explained

I was trolling around the internet for my next post this morning and came across an amazing article on About.com.  It explains the differences between Scotch Whisky, Irish Whiskey, American Whiskey (including, Bourbon, Tennessee Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, and Blended American Whiskey {Blech!}) and Canadian Blended Whiskey (Double Blech!).  This answers A LOT of questions I have had, and I know many of you have had over the last year.  It is an amazing resource for the Whiskey Noob and Connoisseur alike.

There are a lot of links in the article, so instead of copying it here, I will simply put up the link address.  I encourage you to follow the links to gain a better understanding of the spirit we all love.

    The History Channel had a great “Modern Marvels episode show on this same topic on Friday night. Fantastic.

      The world of Whiskey is so huge and interesting. I’ll see if I can look it up. Thanks.

    Oh dear, oh dear. I just start to educate you on Scotch and then this article comes along.

    One step forward, five backward.

    Keith, I know there is so much more to Scotch, and this is kind of a simplistic view of the whiskey world, but I thought it did an adequate job of hitting the high spots as my grandmother used to say.
