Cant answer exactly but i will tell you that before the American Prohibition of alcahol Irish whiskey wasconsidered to be by far the finest. By the end of prohibition scotch had leaped in popularity due to its success in smugling and so it remains to this day. Irish whiskey is distilled once more then scotch so inevitably is far better. You can tell im scottish.
