“Irish I knew More About Irish Whiskey” 

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

The Phoenix and Southern California Whiskey Club were pleased to host Aidan McNally for a night of Irish Whiskey education. His experience with the Irish Whiskey Museum and as Teeling Whiskey brand ambassador covered all the different types of Irish Whiskey with a historical background of uisce betha. There are 4 types (single pot still, single malt, single grain, and blended) and we poured examples of each to explore the nuances firsthand.

1.       Teeling Small Batch

2.       Powers Gold Label

3.       Teeling Single Malt
