Irish Whiskey

Irish whiskeys are generally smoother and fruitier than their Scottish counterparts. Currently, more and more Irish whiskies are being offered in myriad styles, all the while maintaining the freshness and light-spice notes for which they are renowned. It is wonderful to see more Irish Whiskeys in Alberta, including some specialty products like The Quiet Man 8-Year and the Craoi Na Mona. Both The Quiet Man and the Craoi Na Mona were recipients of the Judge’s Selection. Best in Class was awarded to Jameson Caskmates. An absolute treat, Caskmates is aged in stout-seasoned barrels resulting in distinct notes of cocoa, coffee and marzipan. Nathalie Gosselin
