Whisky Life..

Whisky also known in gaelic as the "Water of Life"

Whiskey (with an e) as it is known in Ireland was distilled for the first time ever In Dublin around 1424. Found first in Ireland Whisky was perfected in Scotland.

Malt Whiskey is distilled from Barley, as opposed to grain.
To get the smokey flavor wet barley is laid on top of peat, which is lit from below. The wet barley is dried by "peaty smoke" which is subsequently distilled to imbibe the smokey flavor. Some famous smokey malts being Laphroaig , Ardbeg , Lagavulin , and Talisker. One of my favorites being Caol Ila Pronounced 'cull-eela'from the Isle of Islay, Scotland.

Ireland too has peaty whiskey, amongst the best being Connemara, if you have not tried it as yet, give it a whirl, have a wee dram - without ice, without water..

Malt Whisky is matured in Sherry Casks, thus "lending" the light Sherry Color color as found in The Macallan Single Malt Whisky.

Life without Single Malt would be one without the water of life, synonymous as man is to woman as whisky is to life.
