Whiskey Appreciation & The Upcoming Whisky Live Manila 2017

Pinoys love beer, gin, and wine. You can see this through their celebrations, fiestas and parties.   

But recently, I have observed that one particular type of dark spirit seem to be capturing the palates and attention of both young and old liquor aficionados – whisky.

What is a Whisky

Whisky or whiskey is a distilled alcoholic beverage that is made from fermented barley, or in some countries grain mash.

Known for its distinct bold flavor and full bodied mouth feel, whisky was previously just considered as the preferred drink of distinguished mature adults – imagine the likes of Sean Connery or even CEOs, authority figures or even elderly relatives and family members.  Fortunately, due to the ease of travel and globalization, the younger generation now has the opportunity to better enjoy and understand this prestigious and well-loved drink.

Whiskey, which undergoes a time-earned distillation process to achieve its complex taste, is distilled and aged in oak casks.

Made from barley, corn, wheat or a combination of grains, which are initially germinated before they are dried and ground into mash, the liquor is extracted from the soluble sugars that are produced when the barley or grain is mixed with water.

The extracted liquor is then fermented in large tanks called washbacks for about two days before they are distilled two or three times in stills or bell-shaped containers. 

Like other alcoholic drinks, there are a variety of whiskies available in the market.  One of the most popular types is the single malt whisky which simply means that it is produced by one distillery.

The single grain whisky on the other is a kind of whisky that is made by a grain that is available only in one distillery.  Blended malt whisky refers to the spirit that is produced by using 100% malted barley from two or more different distilleries.  While blended scotch whisky is a mix of both grain and malt scotches from various distilleries.
