Building Your First Irish Whiskey Brands Collection

Since I launched Irish Whiskey .com a few years ago as an online Irish Whiskey portal, one of the unexpected benefits has been the fun that I have had from engaging online with Irish Whiskey Fans from all over the world. Many were whiskey newbies and to be honest, they were my original audience as I set out on a personal crusade to “de-mystify” Irish Whiskey Brands for beginners. To my surprise, I have also gathered a great gang of experienced whiskey folks and Irish Whiskey aficionados, many of whom have become good friends down through the years.

The two main questions I am always asked by both beginners and aficionados are:

  • Where are the best Irish Whiskey spots to see when visiting Ireland and……
  • If I was building a personal Irish Whiskey collection or adding an Irish Whiskey element to my own pub or bar, what would make up a good whiskey card of say twenty or so Irish Whiskey Brands.

I addressed the first issue by developing the Irish Whiskey Trail , Dublin Whiskey Trail and Irish Whiskey Way websites, which promote the top Irish Whiskey Tourism hot spots on the island of Ireland, in Dublin City and along the Wild Atlantic Way coastal drive on Ireland’s west coast.

The Irish Whiskey Trail is a smartphone friendly guide to some of the best whiskey tourism venues and whiskey bars in Ireland.

I admit that I had a selfish motive for creating these Irish Whiskey Trails, as it saves me from writing the same “Hot Tips” email 500 kepada 600 time a year to readers planning their Irish Whiskey focussed vacations.

And so, to the second question –

How to start your own Irish Whiskey Brands Collection.

One of the nice things about sharing whiskey knowledge with whiskey beginners is that they quite often come back to me to share their latest experience or adventure exploring the world of Irish Whiskey beyond Jameson.

Now, before the IDL lawyers come down on top of me, there is nothing at all wrong with Jameson. It’s a solid, entry level Irish Whiskey. It’s a whiskey in the same way that a Ford Fiesta or Nissan Micra is a car. We learn to drive with something basic, but as we gain in confidence and experience, we like to push the boundaries out further. More speed, more luxury, more excitement.

Really wealthy people often have a stable of cars. A car for every occasion. A Range Rover for the Country, A Prius or Tesla for the city. A convertible for the weekend. A Ferrari for fun. A Jaguar, Mercedes or BMW for business travel.

Ordinary folks, like many of us, have to settle for one car that suits our own personal lifestyle. We buy it, drive it and periodically change it for another newer, bigger or smaller model depending on our circumstances and needs. sering, we just buy a newer version of what we are already driving. It’s often the same with Irish whiskey. People learn to drive with Jameson, so when it becomes time to buy a new bottle, they often buy the same again because it is both familiar and convenient.

Will Irish Whiskey retain it’s unique style and character?

This is a real shame, because many never know what they missing out on. For just a very little extra money per bottle and armed with the knowledge from this article, my plan is to empower you to not only to abandon your Jameson “Fiesta” days, but to test drive with confidence, the Jags, Mercs, BMWs, Range Rovers and Ferraris of the Irish Whiskey World.

Once upon a time, (when I was a kid) you could often tell what country a car was made in by it’s unique style and character. Let’s hope that we retain that same diversity of styles and character within Irish Whiskey. It would be a shame if some day, that all whiskey dumbed down to a mass produced lowest common denominator style.

Over the next week or so, I’m going to show you how to slowly but surely build a stable of diverse Irish Whiskey brands and expressions into your own personal Irish Whiskey collection. Let’s embrace and support Irish Whiskey Diversity!

Irish Whiskey Brands Collecting Tips for Beginners!

Many of you wait to buy a new bottle of Whiskey until the bottle you are currently drinking is empty. The trick to building an Irish Whiskey collection is to try to buy your next bottle when the previous bottle is between 2/3 and ¾ full. That way, you gradually build up a stock of whiskeys that are half to 2/3 full.

Nearly time to buy order the next bottle of whiskey to add to my Irish Whiskey Collection

As the number of bottles increases, the rate of consumption of each individual bottle decreases. Of course every so often, a bottle will empty, but then you have the choice to either replenish the existing brand or replace with something more deserving on your shelf. Once you have opened your third or fourth new bottle, you can start saying that you have an Irish Whiskey collection.

There are three different types of Irish Whiskey as well as four different blend combinations.

This is what my suggested Irish Whiskey Collection Starter Pack should look like. The actual brands that I have selected will be discussed in more detail in my next blog article later this week.Best Irish Whiskey Jenama.

Try Older Whiskeys

Entry level whiskeys are just three years old. Start buying some older whiskeys. Remember, that in whiskey blends, the age statement given on the bottle refers to the youngest whiskey element in the blend. An 8 Year old blend may contain 8-year-old Single Grain Whiskey but 14 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey. Age generally adds depth and complexity to a whiskey.

It’s all about the Wood.

Lambay Whiskey mature their Irish Single Malt Whiskey on Lambay Island in Camus Cognac Casks which were themselves matured in cliff side cellars on the French Atlantic coast of Ile de Ré.

Many whiskeys now have a little extra magic added to their flavour and complexity during maturation by being finished for three to 12 months or more in casks that previously held rum, cognac, wines, sherries or ports . There are barrels that have been extra flame charred and there are barrels made from woods like walnut and chestnut instead of the traditional oak.

Casks may also be stored in bond during maturation in unique environments or conditions such as the maritime environments of Lambay Island in Dublin, Cork Bonded Warehouses on Little Island in Cork Harbour or West Cork Distillers in Skibbereen. All bring some extra magic to the whiskey.

Cask Strength and Irish Whiskey

The simple little brass and glass cabinet called the Spirit Safe, where much of the art and magic of whiskey distillation is controlled.

The strength of whiskey is measured as the Alcohol by Volume (ABV) percentage of the whiskey. The majority of entry-level whiskeys are bottled at 40% ABV kerana ini adalah kekuatan terendah di mana minuman keras itu boleh dijual sebagai wiski. Dalam wiski yang kurang daripada 46% ABV, lemak yang berlaku secara semula jadi, protein dan ester dalam wiski dapat memadu dan menyatukan (secara mikroskopik) jika wiski disejukkan dengan penambahan ais atau air sejuk. Ini boleh menyebabkan sedikit keruh atau kabut di wiski. Walaupun keruh ini tidak berbahaya, banyak syarikat wiski menyejukkan wiski dan menyaring komponen ini sebelum pembotolan untuk mengatasi masalah ini. Ini dipanggil “Penapisan sejuk. Terdapat sebuah aliran pemikiran bahawa Chill Filtering menghilangkan beberapa kebaikan dari wiski, tetapi sekiranya berlaku, kesannya sedikit. Banyak wiski premium di botol 46% bawa label “Bukan Chill Filtered” yang agak berlebihan kerana seperti yang anda ketahui setelah membaca ini, tidak perlu penapis sejuk di 46%+ ABV.

Membuka tong wiski untuk pertama kalinya untuk mencuba arwah yang matang selalu menjadi momen istimewa dan tidak dapat dilupakan.

Wiski apabila diambil terus dari tong yang telah matang pada umumnya mempunyai kekuatan tong sekitar 52% ABV ke 60 % ABV. Sebelum pembotolan, wiski dicairkan hingga kekuatan pembotolan yang diinginkan dengan air de-mineralisasi tulen. Kekuatan tong Wiski terus ke botol!

Sejadah air suhu bilik yang sederhana akan menolong anda menikmati kenikmatan maksimum dari wiski anda.

Semasa mencuba atau minum wiski, peminat seperti saya secara amnya akan menambahkan sedikit air ke wiski kami. Terdapat dua sebab untuk ini. Pertama, air boleh “membuka” wiski yang mengeluarkan lebih banyak rasa dan aroma.

Kedua, apabila anda menghirup wiski yang kemas, anda secara amnya akan mengalami sensasi terbakar atau kesemutan di mulut anda daripada alkohol. Semakin tinggi kekuatannya, kesan yang lebih mengganggu dan tidak menyenangkan ini. Dalam pengalaman saya, pembakaran alkohol ini adalah satu-satunya penghalang terbesar untuk menukar pemula wiski kepada suku wiski.

Air adalah kunci untuk bahagian akhir proses pembuatan Wiski, sama ada ditambah dengan penyulingan semasa pembotolan atau oleh anda dalam gelas anda.

Itulah sebabnya walaupun penggemar wiski yang berpengalaman seperti saya hampir selalu menambahkan air ke wiski rapi kami untuk membunuh atau menjinakkan alkohol dan mengoptimumkan rasa dan aroma wiski berharga kami. Kerana kepekaan hidung dan lelangit setiap orang berbeza, jumlah air yang diperlukan untuk membunuh alkohol yang terbakar di wiski anda akan sangat berbeza dengan saya. Oleh itu tradisi Whisky Ireland lama “jangan sekali-kali menyiram wiski orang lain”. Gelas Whisky Ireland yang sempurna adalah satu sama sekali tanpa rasa bakar atau kesemutan di dalam mulut yang memungkinkan rasa dan rasa maksimum dapat dinikmati..

Wiski yang dijual dengan kekuatan tong biasanya akan jauh lebih mahal, sebagai liter wiski kekuatan tong di 60% ABV akan bertukar menjadi satu setengah liter wiski jika dicairkan menjadi dan dibotolkan pada 40%. Ace wiski hobi, salah satu perkara yang baik untuk memiliki sebotol Cask Strength Irish Whisky ialah anda sendiri menjadi bahagian terakhir dalam proses membuat wiski semasa anda mengambil wiski terus dari tong dan mencairkannya di rumah, satu gelas pada masa, ke dalam ekspresi peribadi anda mengenai jenama wiski itu.

Terdapat banyak wiski Ireland premium yang berpatutan di 46% dan ke atas hingga Kekuatan Cask penuh pada tahun lima puluhan.
