Irish Whiskey makers once dominated the world with their single pot still whiskies, but the collapse of Ireland’s whiskey industry a century ago closed dozens of distilleries and consigned their unique recipes to history. Irish Whiskey historian Fionnán O’Connor has been working with Boann Distillery in County Meath to produce spirit using many of the recipes he’s uncovered as part of his doctoral degree research at Dublin’s Trinity College. Those recipes will be put to the test in the coming weeks in blind tastings with today’s Irish Whiskey distillers, as Fionnán tells us on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. We’ll also have the week’s whisky news, tasting notes, and some of your unique ways to describe your favorite whiskies, too!
