Whiskey can be a strong spirit, so it’s best to start with a lower proof, around 40-50%. This will allow you to taste the flavors without being overwhelmed by the alcohol content.

There are many different types of whiskey, such as Bourbon, Scotch, Irish, and Rye. Each type has its own unique flavor profile. For instance, there are fruity whiskey, smoky whiskey, sweet whiskey, and last but not least, spicy whiskey. Be sure to try different types to find your favorite. At our Irish bar, we specialize in Irish whiskey, and we offer a wide selection of single malt and blended Irish whiskey, each with its own unique flavor and aroma.

3. Drink it neat or with a drop of water.

To truly taste the flavors of whiskey, it’s best to drink it neat or with a drop or two of water. This allows the whiskey to open up and release its aroma. Avoid adding mixers as they can overpower the whiskeys flavor. At our Irish bar, we believe that whiskey should be enjoyed in its purest form, and we encourage our
customers to try their whiskey neat or with a drop of water.

4. Invest in good glassware.

The type of glassware you use can also affect the way you experience whiskey. A whiskey tumbler or a snifter is the best option as they allow the whiskey to breathe and release its aroma. At our Irish bar, we use the proper glassware for whiskey to enhance the taste and aroma of the whiskey.
