  1. Hi Brian, Garret and Michael, Many thanks for your interesting feedback which seems to support my theory?
    The good news as you can see from my latest blog post yesterday https://irishwhiskey.com/irish-whiskey-renaissance/ is that some bars and restaurant owners in Ireland (and particularly in Galway) are identifying and exploiting the opportunities in the global resurgence of Irish whiskey.
    The Parknasilla example is not new to me. My own family are regular guests there and were told by a staff member a few years ago that as many of their guests are American, the bar is full of high end Scotch as that is what the guests know and want. So the hotels play safe and just give them what they want by creating an American bar in Ireland. The hotels will tell me that they will stock premium Irish Whiskey when the guests demand it, but if the guest don’t always know enough about Irish whiskey, they won’t look for it. It’s chicken and egg stuff
    But imagine if high end hotels such as Parknasilla created a simple “Irish ohlwini Whisky” based on our Irish Whiskey Pooka Scale at https://irishwhiskey.com/pooka-scale/. Ngokuthe gqo, you have something very high end and very Irish to add value to your guests experience. We are further developing the Pooka Scale project as an Irish Whiskey education tool in coming weeks. My plan is to develop a simple info-graphic that can be used to explain Irish whiskey forms, styles and structure to Irish whiskey beginners be they bar staff, tourists or even new whiskey drinkers.
    If our tourism guests are introduced for the first time to Irish Whiskey while on holiday, they’ll buy more in airport duty free and before you know it we have a new life time Irish Whiskey convert!
    Thanks again for the great comments and feedback and welcome to IrishWhiskey.com!

    Ozithobayo, Stuart

  2. Thank you very much for that clarification. I have tried to contact you without success. I’d be delighted to offer Parknasilla Resort and Spa a free VIP Listing on our new IrishWhiskeyWay.com Irish Whiskey Tourism site which will be launched in coming weeks. If interested, please see http://IrishWhiskey.com/VIP for application form and my contact details.

    Ozithobayo,

    Stuart

  3. Sawubona “Irish Whiskey Expert”,

    I’m not sure from your comments if you have actually read my article properly? But if you have, you seem to have missed the point completely.

    From the opening of my article.”Isikhathi sokugcina ukuthi Irish Whiskey akhule onjalo kwakuyiNkosi ekuqa- nekhulu le-19 nelesi-20 leminyaka. Kodwa ke zonke liphahlazeka ngasekuqaleni kwawo-1900. Esinye sezizathu iphahlazeka kwaba ukwethulwa Ukwenqatshelwa eMelika”.

    This is not meant to be a history of the travails of the Irish Whiskey industry. Rather, it is a quick study on the effect of one or two bad apples spoiling a barrel. I’m talking about why bootlegging affected the Irish whiskey industry more than the Scotch or Bourbon industryduring prohibition years”. Of course I know about the effect of the Coffey Still. I am after all a whiskey writer. I have written elsewhere in recent years of the Coffey Still and Temperance movements in Ireland.

    The point I am making here and which most of my readers (including your Tullamore DEW colleagues) have understood judging from feedback on social media tonight, is that there are valuable lessons to be learned from the early 1900’s to the 30’s when the good name of Irish Whiskey suffered severe damage because of the actions of those producing poor quality or imitation whiskey under an Irish Whiskey banner.

    I am saying that it is important for all of us who care about Irish whiskey to protect it’s good name. Your own company IDL (You registered here with a Pernod-Ricard email address) is to the forefront of this as I have seen at first hand from my visits to Midleton. I have reflected this in many other articles on your distillery and my reviews of many of your products.

    In terms of scolding me in person withmore research required”, perhaps the following may be worth reflecting on.
    Despite all the challenges facing the Irish Whiskey industry there was still a worldwide demand for quality Irish Pot Still whiskey and by 1900 the amount of whiskey distilled in Ireland quadrupled.” – This quote is from your own IDL publication on Irish Whiskey History. It also supports my opening statement in the article “Isikhathi sokugcina ukuthi Irish Whiskey akhule onjalo kwakuyiNkosi ekuqa- nekhulu le-19 nelesi-20 leminyaka. Kodwa ke zonke liphahlazeka ngasekuqaleni kwawo-1900”.

    This hardly supports youadvisingme thatIrish whiskey was long dead before prohibition”. In fact Irish whiskey was more popular in the US than Scotch pre-prohibition and particularly on the Irish influenced East Coast (Boston and New York).

    As fora war with the British Empirepre-dating prohibition. Prohibition which commenced in 1920 was repealed in 1933. The Anglo Irish Trade war only really started then in 1933 following the second Irish election in two years.

    While I welcome comments of any kind here on IrishWhiskey.com, I am always disappointed when someone’s first instinct is to attack and denigrate the messenger by making loose and unsustainable accusations themselves of sloppy work by others. I am particularly disappointed that in doing so, you claim to be representing IDL. Perhaps you were having a bad evening? Or are you actually with Irish Distillers. I have my suspicions and will be checking.

    I’m now going to open a new bottle of Yellow Spot!

    Ozithobayo,

    Stuart

  4. Umfundi eyed ukhozi uye ikhombe ukuthi ngenkathi Jameson 18 Iminyaka Bow Street Cask Amandla is bevalela ngesikhathi 55.3% ABV, izithombe olunikezwe yi cindezela ithimba labo ukukhombisa ibhodlela nge ilebula ekhombisa 54.5% ABV.

  5. Thanks very much, Patrick. Now you have two great whiskey brands to celebrate and enjoy from Tullamore! Ozithobayo, Stuart

  6. Thanks Patrick!! Let’s see if a Drop or two of the D.E.W. make our Irish Whiskey Collection shortlist nest week! Ozithobayo, Stuart

  7. Sawubona,

    Nice to meet you futhi siyabonga okokufaka. Ngaya kuvulwa omusha distillery amabele Tullamore ngesonto eledlule kanye ngibuza ukuthi ukusetshenziswa Grain Irish. Ngatshelwa ukuthi ngokuvamile, kokubili lwemithombo nokusanhlamvu Distilleries e Tullamore zisebenzisa Irish esezikhulile okusanhlamvu kuzo ezimbili ezihlukene Irish okusanhlamvu abahlinzeki.

    Isizathu ukuthi musa umemeze ngalokhu ukuthi nazo babe ingxenye yesithathu amabele umphakeli etholakalayo ngokufunwa abangakwazi uzozinakekela okusanhlamvu ngaphandle Ireland. Baqhubeka lo mphakeli zigciniwe uma ukuhluleka inhlekelele ohlangothini abaphakeli babo Irish.

    Nakuba Ngithanda umbono yokusanhlamvu Irish iyasetshenziswa nogologo Irish, Mina ngokwami ​​musa ukubhalisela “Terroir” ukumaketha sebekulungele ukukhushulelwa abanye Distilleries entsha ngasekupheleni. Yize kungaba umehluko lobhacile ukunambitheka kanye ukunambitheka phakathi izinhlobo ezahlukene noma zamagciwane sebhali ngesinye ubhiya, ngesikhathi lesi ubhiya noma ukugeza iye distilled izikhathi ezimbili noma ezintathu, yimuphi umehluko asalile kuyoba ngomzuzu. Umehluko ezibangelwa ezifanayo okusanhlamvu izinhlobo isikhule e Cork kuqhathaniswa Tullamore, ake Cork wedwa kuqhathaniswa Montana uzoba mncane uma ngabe zikhona ngaso sonke ziphuzo zazihluzwa ezilandelayo.

    Ngisho noma Terroir zazibaluleke, bekungeke yini kube ukuqondana omkhulu uma amasimu lapho kwenzeke ukuba eduze distillery nje kwenzeka ukukhiqiza kangcono okusanhlamvu enongiwe kunanoma kwenye indawo e-Ireland!

    Umehluko ngewayini liwukuthi njengazo, kodwa ngokwezinga elithile ezinkulu nakakhulu kunamanzi ubhiya, amagilebhisi kunomthelela ingxenye enkulu ukunambitheka kanye nekhwalithi elihlobene ne umkhiqizo osuphelile. Yilokho futhi kungani Distilleries zakhelwe eduze nemithombo yamanzi nokusatshalaliswa amanethiwekhi (imigwaqo, imiselekazi njll) kuyilapho wineries zitholakala eduze noma izivini.

    Ngakho, umbono wami siqu ukuthi ngenkathi kuwumqondo omuhle ukuthi Irish nogologo distillery shoka umnotho wabo wasekhaya ngokusebenzisa okusanhlamvu Irish, kungcono nje umqondo nice yizicukuthwane. Lonke inganekwane yokusanhlamvu “terroir” e nogologo is nje ukuthengisa inkulumo. Ukuze uthole umbono ezimele kule ukubona lokhu kwakamuva Scottish Malt Whisky Umphakathi sihloko ku Whisky Grain Terroir.

    Ozithobayo,

    Stuart

  8. Hi John, Nice ukuzwa kuwe!

    Yiqiniso wena ngobuchwepheshe efanele lapho iveza ukuthi kunezinhlobo eziningi Scotch whiskeys ukuthi kukhona un-peated.

    Ngicabanga abafundi abaningi (kuhlanganise Wabasaqalayo isihloko kuhloswe) ngabe, ngaqaphela ukuthi ngangingenzi kuphela ukhuluma ngani peated scotch whiskeys esihlokweni.

    Malting Un-peated ngabe kuqala ubambile emathafeni asethuthukile eScotland ngabe Ngelulelé phezu kwekhulunyaka njengoba ezokuthutha (imigwaqo emikhulu nojantshi bezitimela) ingqalasizinda athuthukile kuze ezinkangala.

    Ngizobuya ukukhothamela nalabo abanolwazi kakhudlwana Scotch Whisky umkhakha kunesami, + kodwa ingqondo yami ukuthi namuhla, eziningi peated Scotch whiskeys ungase uthonywe essence kunokuba ezimnandi zakudala usuphelelwe Turf intuthu.

    Siyabonga futhi bahlanganyele!!

    Ozithobayo,

    Stuart

  9. Hi Martin, Thanks for the kind comments.

    From the Moscow Times a few weeks ago. http://www.themoscowtimes.com/article.php?id=525436 . In this article titledAs Alcohol Prices Soar, Russians Turn to Imitation Whiskeys and Rums”, Rowsons Reserve is described as aWhiskey based drink”! Is it Irish Whiskey or awhiskey based drink”?

    This link http://eng.winestyle.ru/products/Rowson-s-Reserve-700.html from one of their suppliers in Russia seems to imply that the Russian Rowsons Reserve is 100% Irish whiskey and is different from the Indian version?

    If this “Whisky Irish” contains Indian whiskey, it will have interesting implications. Ngolwazi ezinalo, Diageo are still members of the IWA even since offloading all of their Irish Whiskey interests when they sold Bushmills to Jose Cuerva in Mexico earlier this year. If it’s awhiskey based drinkrather than a whiskey, there will be confusion.

    Reports such as these which show history repeating itself are what prompted me to write this article. Thanks for highlighting! Ozithobayo, Stuart
