Like Scotch, Irish Whiskey, produced only in Ireland, is a blended product containing both barley malt whiskies and grain whiskies. Unlike Scotch, however, its malt is dried in coal-fired kilns and the aroma of the fires does not reach the malt. Generally aged for a minimum of five years in used oak sherry casks, Irish whiskey is lighter in flavour and less smoky than Scotch.
