Scotch whiskey is made from water and barley. A little yeast may be added to get the fermentation process going. The barley mash is dried in a kiln with a porous floor, under which burns a fire made of peat, which is what gives Scotch it's distinctive smoky and slightly oily flavor. After the whiske…y is distilled out, it is aged in barrels for at least 3 years. Most Scotches are blended, but they are blended from nothing but various Scotch whiskys - grain neutral spirits are never mixed in, like they are with many cheaper American whiskeys. Scotch is the only spirit where the name is properly spelled "whisky". In all other forms (rye, bourbon, etc), it is "whiskey". (MORE)

I consider myself Scots-Irish , but from the other way around as the explanations below. I was born in Scotland but from Irish immigrant grand-parents. I consider myself Scots ( not Scotch , that term is used for products like whiskey etc , Scots is for people ) and have a strong Glasgow accent , …however the community and culture I was brought up in was Irish , my Gaelic is Irish and not Scots. I have no conflict within myself regards this and live happily between the cultures. However there are a small minority of Scots who feel I should not be celebrating my Irish roots , or I should ' go back home ' . However they are a small-minded minority and ironically they are the same ones who feel more loyalty to the English Queen than to their own country. Go figure. The majority of the Scots-Irish moved to certain parts of Scotland during the same mass immigration that saw millions move around the world, especially to America , due to the Famine in Ireland which killed a million people. The racist element in Scotland , especially in Glasgow sing openly ' The famine is over , why don't you go home ' it seems that as long as we acknowledge our roots we are not welcome , even after many generations. I must stress though that this is a small minority of bigots much as you will find in any country and that the majority of Scots could not care less and are a welcoming people. The term Scotch-Irish is only what Americans call them. They are, in fact, Scottish people who were moved to the northern part of Ireland in order to force out the Catholics. Soon, however, they moved to the Americas due to religious persecution by the British as well as economic reasons. They were Protestant; Presbyterian rather than Anglican.) Short Answer: Because they wanted the Anglo-Americans to know that they were of Scottish ethnicity (and presumably Protestant) but admittedly had lived in Ireland before immigrating. Irish Catholics were unpopular and they wanted to 'distance themselves'. Yes I have heard this silly chant of ,why don't the Irish go home...I suppose the same thing could be asked of the Northern Irish loyalists--why don't they go home--after all King Billy is dead and gone.. However ,why don't they stay and why don't all the Scots(gaels--known as scotia from where the name Scotland derives) come back to Ireland after all that's where they originally hail from..so welcome home..

Impossible. Scotch has to have at least 40% alcohol by volume (otherwise they aren't allowed to sell it as 'scotch') and the remaining 40 to 60% is pretty much entirely water. In other words, scotch is (deliciously flavored) alcohol. It's like asking if you could have a cup of coffee without any cof…fee in it. (MORE)

Single Malt versus Blended Scotch Whisky Scotch whiskey (or simply Scotch) refers to a large family of spirits made in Scotland from malted grain. Malt refers to any kind of cereal grain (e.g., corn, barley, wheat, rye) that has been sprouted and then dried. This turns the grain's starches into… sugar (maltose). Scotch whiskey (or whiskey in America and Ireland) must contain some malted barley. If other grains are used, they must be in whole-grain form. In 2009, the rules governing the types of Scotch changed, and it's pretty confusing. Here are the five types: . Single Malt Scotch Whisky, . Single Grain Scotch Whisky, . Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, . Blended Grain Scotch Whisky, and . Blended Scotch Whisky. There is no overlap among the types. #1 is made from local water and malted barley from only one distillery that uses a batch distillation process. The process must employ pot stills . #2 is confusing because it may use more than one grain, but it must be made at a single distillery. #3 is a blend of two or more #1 type whiskys from different distilleries. #4 is a blend of two or more #2 type whiskys from different distilleries. #5 is a blend of #1 and #2 type whiskys.

Water, alcohol (made from malted barley that may be smoked over a peat fire), and what are called cogeners . Cogeners are the molecules that attach to the alcohol and/or water during distillation that give each type of liquor its unique flavor. However, the higher proof you distill something to, or… the more times you do it, removes more and more of these cogeners. That's why Vodka is distilled a bunch of times to around 195 proof, but Scotch is only distilled a couple of times to less than 100 proof. In Scotch, you want to taste the cogeners. (MORE)
