Blended Irish Whiskeys
Believe it or not, there are challengers to the throne in the best-known Irish whiskey category. An American whiskey maker in Ireland created the most exciting blended Irish whiskey in years. Malty and sweet, Two Gingers is aged for four years before bottling. Compared to a lot of things in the category it’s much spicier on the palate, much rounder on the nose, with fruity honey notes and a backbone of vanilla that coats the mouth. Think of it like taking a sip of barrel-aged cake icing. Of course, there's the old bellwether to be considered too: Jameson is probably the best known whiskey in the world, and the reason it outlasted everyone else is, well, quality.
