Whiskey, a Drink for Any Occasion

From Amber Tonic to Bar Shelf Staple

Alcohol has been consumed long before the effects of the substance were ever fully understood. The true origin of alcoholic drinks, in general, is a largely disputed topic, but some people speculate that such beverages are Arabic in origin. Regardless of where these drinks came from, whiskey has become an iconic drink in both pop culture and bars all over the globe. This is due to the fact that whiskey can be enjoyed both neat, or mixed with a number of other beverages.

As popular as it is now, whiskey was not always well known as the honey-colored concoction that it is today. Between the 11th and 13th-century distillation techniques were brought to Ireland and Scotland. Due to the absence of certain ingredients wine was not as readily available as in other parts of the world. Hence, instead of distilling wine as was the traditional practice, barley beer was instead chosen to be distilled. Upon being distilled and aged in wooden casks the barley beer took on an amber color and it was hence known as whiskey.

Originally, whiskey was used as both an internal anesthetic and an external antibiotic, both of these attributes were owed to the high alcohol content that was achieved upon distilling barley beer. Throughout the years, whiskey became more popular as a refreshment instead of a medicinal elixir. This popularity would only continue to rise as whiskey-brewing became more and more refined. Today, whiskey is enjoyed neat or mixed with any number of drinks be it sodas, and juices, or even iced tea and milkshakes.


Picking a Proper Whiskey

Choosing the right whiskey can be a daunting task for first-time drinkers and seasoned drinkers alike. This family of spirits has had over seven centuries to grow and mature, and because of this, there are a number of excellent whiskeys to choose from, but like all things, the selection process can be made simple so long as one keeps the following criteria in mind.

1. Mixed or Neat?
The question of mixed or neat simply pertains to whether or not one intends to enjoy their whiskey mixed with other beverages or chilled and free of any additives including ice. When one knows the answer to this question it can quickly narrow down the search for a good whiskey. If the drink is to be mixed, the whiskey should contain high alcohol by volume so as to retain a kick even when diluted by ice and water, aside from this the brand should also have a strong taste in order to avoid being overpowered by other flavors. On the other hand, if the Whiskey is to be enjoyed neat then consumers can opt to drink a whiskey with lower alcohol content. Since there are no additives in a neat drink the whiskey is very rarely diluted and sipping a very strong whiskey neat is a quick way to get acquainted with the bad side of alcoholic beverages. Aside from a lower alcohol percentage, choosing a smooth whiskey will also help with making the drink palatable for novices.

2. Age
The age in question here is not the age of the drinker, though minors should always refrain from consuming any alcohol before reaching the right age. When it comes to whiskey, age is the length of time a whiskey has spent in a cask. Though the characteristics may sometimes differ, the general rule of thumb is that the longer a whiskey ages, the smoother and more refined its flavors become. This can actually be easily noticed when one compares an 8-year whiskey to an 18-year whiskey. The smoothness and distinct flavors easily become apparent, so much so that even novice drinkers will be able to notice a difference albeit a very small one. Flavor and palatability aren't the only things that grow the longer a whiskey is aged, there is also a considerable rise in price as the longer process entails more work and careful planning on the part of the brewer. Regardless of this hike in price, many avid whiskey consumers will agree the higher cost is a worthy investment for a great bottle of whiskey.


The Ins and Outs of Whiskey

When venturing out to purchase a bottle of whiskey consumers would do well to check for certain specifications in order to really understand the whiskey of their choice, the presence of these specs will also indicate a level of adherence to international whiskey standards.

1. Alcohol Content
One of the most important features of any alcoholic drink is alcohol content. The more alcohol is present in a whiskey the stronger the effects will be when the drink is consumed. It is for this reason that whiskey should be consumed responsibly and either be mixed or drunk in moderation.

2. Blend
Whiskey like all distilled alcohols is made with a unique blend of herbs, and grains, all of these things contribute largely to how whiskey tastes. It should be noted that whiskey classified as bourbon usually consists of 51% corn blend aged in American Oak casks. Though not necessarily a part of the blend, the wood that a cask is made from will also contribute a specific flavor to whiskey typically imparting smokey notes and the iconic amber color.


Household Names in the World of Whiskey

The best whiskey is not the one that is liked by many, instead, the best whiskey is the one that is loved by the drinker. The following brands are those that are loved by many and known for their quality, though it isn't guaranteed that every drinker will enjoy the whiskeys on this list, they provide a good basis to help develop one's taste.

1. Old Forester Rye Whiskey
Manufactured in Kentucky by the Old Forester distillery this Rye whiskey is said to have distinct caramel notes and hints of fruits such as banana and even citrus. As in the case of Bourbon, Rye is comprised of a specific blend of grains that is unique to Rye whiskeys. Due to the use of unique wood for the casks, this whiskey is also described as having smokey and chocolate notes.

2. J. Henry & Sons Bourbon
J. Henry & Sons Distilleries is well known as a reliable manufacturer of fine whiskeys. As a family-owned farm in Wisconsin, these brewers maintain a level of intimacy with their craft that is often lost with other commercial producers. Aside from this, the Bourbon is composed of a special 4-grain mash made of corn, wheat, rye, and also malted barley. These Bourbons are reported to be sweet and well balanced with a slight spice thanks to the rye.

3. Johnny Drum Private Stock
This Bourbon is a small batch that has been aged for 3 years at the minimum in Willet Distiller. With proof of one hundred and one or 50% alcohol by volume, this drink is strong and sugary but relatively smooth making it excellent as a neat drink. Unique to this drink is the presence of sour apple, vanilla, and oak flavor notes.


Trivia
